A note from the President:

I'm very honoured this year to again receive two awards in the West Kootenay Best of Business Awards as chosen by the readers of Kootenay Business Magazine. For 2017 I received gold awards both for Fire & Safety Inspections and for Fireplace/Wood Stove Dealer.

Unloading wood pellets Snowball Ventures - Pellet Division started in 1995 with my purchase of a Traeger wood pellet furnace to replace the wood furnace for my 2200 sq.ft. log home.

After experiencing difficulty in purchasing consistent quality wood pellet fuel from nearby cities, I decided to become a wood pellet distributor for Eagle Valley Pellets in Princeton. (Princeton Co-Generation Corp. had just finished building a new $2.5 million wood pellet mill in the early spring of 1996) In this way, I could be assured of a reliable supply of good wood pellet fuel for myself and all the other wood pellet heating appliance users in the Boundary Country area of BC. After 2 years of selling a different brand, I'm pleased to once again be selling Eagle Valley Pellets.

As an offshoot of the wood pellet fuel end of the business, I attended a servicing seminar in Surrey BC in the Fall of 1996 and have since become a sales outlet for a number of manufacturers of pellet heating appliances and wood stoves/inserts, as well as being a factory authorized service and repair facility (including warranty repairs) for most brands.

Through training seminars and courses in venting, installation and trouble-shooting, I continually upgrade my knowledge in order to stay current with new technology as well as maintaining my WETT certification as an Advanced Heating Systems Advisor and Technician and a S.I.T.E. Comprehensive Inspector.
