Snow Valley Mini Storage Opens in Fernie, British Columbia, Canada


Snow Valley Mini Storage has opened in Fernie, British Columbia, Canada. The property at 1521 10th Ave. is owned by partners Marsha Churchill and Kurtis Ellis. The couple, who have two children, were seeking a business they could operate together when they decided to build a self-storage facility, according to the source.

“We’ve wanted to do mini-storage for the last 10 years,” said Churchill, who owned the Lunch Box restaurant in the downtown area until last year. She also helped Ellis operate his business, Valley View Contracting, which constructed the new facility. “Working as a team is so much better. It takes the stress off, and it’s something you can talk about together.”

The property is in an industrial area of the city and was a former dumping yard for a roof business. “This was the last lot in town that was zoned for [storage],” said Ellis, adding construction was hampered by the weather.

Snow Valley Mini offers drive-up storage units, online billpay and tenant insurance. Churchill and Ellis provide free storage to local nonprofits, including Outdoor Connections, which plans to store kayaks and camping gear, the source reported.
