Snow Valley Spa & Leisure
1541 9th Ave

20 years ago, Clinton was President, The English Patient won Best Picture, the Spice Girls were top ten on the Billboard Chart, and Snow Valley Spa & Leisure opened its doors in Fernie.

This locally owned Sundance Spa dealer has become an important part of our community – from participation in many local clubs, including the Fernie Lions and sponsorship of the Demo Derby.

Dave Bergeron moved from Calgary after selling his automotive business to become owner of the store; like many new Fernie residents, he came for the lifestyle and loves living here full time after years of being a “Califernian.” Dave is excited to celebrate this business milestone with Fernie!

In honour of the 20th Anniversary, they are planning a big June sale. Everyone in the Elk Valley is invited to celebrate by coming into the store and finding great deals on hot tubs, accessories, and products.
