Located in the agriculturally-based Creston Valley, we have four great seasons, but spring comes early by Canadian standards. Like the Okanagan, the Creston Valley is renowned for the quality Quantity, and variety of fruit we grow, including grapes. In fact, one of our favourite pastimes is enjoying a glass or two of our favourite wine from one of 4 local wineries at a little event called "Wine Down Frida"! Fruit, wine, art and artisants; we have it all.
Nestled between the steep scarps of the Purcell Mountains to the east and the neighboring Selkirk Mountains to the west, Creston lies in the 'heart of the Kootenays'. Whether it's summiting one of our nearby peaks, cascading down the Goat River, water-skiing on Kootenay Lake, or fishing Duck Lake for an abundance of Bass, there's something for everyone here, year round. While Creston experiences mild winters, the nearby Kootenay Pass receives a startling amount of snow and offers outstanding snowmobiling and ski touring in the winter. If that's not enough, we're only an hour and a half away from 4 world class resorts, including Whitewater, Red Mountain, Kimberley, and Schweitzer in the USA.
We're a fortunate group of people; we get to work with peers who are enthusiastic, team-oriented, and genuinely passionate about their work. Our team is why our clients and patients have been returning to us for over 45 years; because our goal is to support them every step of the way.
