Snow Valley Spas is owned by Kari and Cam Mertz. It has been operating in the Elk Valley since 1997, with a retail store selling Sundance Spas, Hydropool Swimspas, hot tub chemicals, parts, and accessories. It also offers spa maintenance and repair services.
Cam and Kari have lived in Fernie since 2010. Their boys Owen and Nolan help out in the family business when their allowance runs out. The whole family enjoys skiing, biking, and the small town mountain outdoor living that Fernie offers.
Cam and Kari have had broad career paths that led them perfectly to this business- Kari worked in social work and counselling, Cam in Municipal Government. Since leaving those careers they both agree that owning and operating their own small businesses are by far the most rewarding career path for them. They are both well versed in owning and operating service based businesses in Fernie, BC; having owned and operated Mow and Snow since 2016 and Blue Spruce Landscapes since 2019.
