Winter was cold and snowy. The number of visitors during the cold weather months was less than in recent years. Now the weather is warming up. We expect to see more pressure on the use of the hot springs during the summer months. If people are trying to make up for the times that they didn't come this winter, then we will have more people at the gate this summer. We will continue to keep the capacity within our usual limits, which will make reservations even more necessary. Valley View people tend to be spontaneous and act on whim. That may not work so well. Try to plan ahead and make advance reservations to avoid the unpleasant experience of being told that the hot springs is full. We don't enjoy turning people away but minimizing overcrowded conditions is important for everybody.
