The Spa 901 Story
March 5, 2019

It started with the restoration of Fernie’s 1908 schoolhouse, a former place of education for many locals, who attended this high school between the dates of 1909 - 1998.   A $30 million dollar restoration of this property transformed the grounds into luxury residences, vacation rentals and a commercial space fit for a spa; the once run down building was rejuvenated into a place of retreat, a 6600 square foot wellness centre comprising of multiple treatment areas, retail space and amenities. In 2012, Spa 901 was founded by Calgary entrepreneur Shelly MacGregor. One year prior, Shelly visited Fernie for a bike trip,…

Just as we make changes to our wardrobe to prepare for the dip in temperature, we must also make some critical changes to our skincare routine to protect our skin from the harsh elements and over-drying.  Here are three small changes you can incorporate to help combat that dry winter skin: #1) Adjust your bathing routine.

Infrared Sauna, Explained.

At Spa 901 we have two infrared saunas, offering a great therapeutic avenue for anyone looking to relax, alleviate minor or chronic pain and detoxify stubborn toxins. So what is an infrared sauna, and why is is not "hot" like a traditional sauna?   Let us explain...
