Just in Time for the Olympics: Scandinave Spa Unveils a New $9 Million Spa in Whistler, B.C.

MONT-TREMBLANT, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2010) - Just in time for the Olympics, the Scandinave Spa group is once again making a splash - this time with the official opening of a new Scandinave Spa in Whistler, B.C.

The $9 million Scandinave Spa Whistler is the largest investment yet for the Scandinave Spa team, comprised of investors and a management group including Pierre Brisson, Benoit Berthiaume,- and ex-NHL hockey star Vincent Damphousse among others. "Since the start of this ambitious project, we've been able to count on the financial support of our long-standing partners - notably the Caisse centrale Desjardins, the Fonds de Solidarite FTQ and Patrick St-Arnaud," says Vincent Damphousse. "Without them, none of this would have been possible."

Nestled in the woods and just footsteps from the village, Scandinave Spa Whistler promotes an environmentally sustainable design that includes a green roof, passive solar energy, installation of heat recovery and high effectiveness heating equipment. "For over a decade, we've been pioneers in the wellness revolution by creating spectacular spa environments in a natural setting," says Pierre Brisson, president of Scandinave Spa Whistler. "Our latest project proves that we intend to remain leaders in this industry. Whether in Quebec, Ontario, British Columbia or beyond, every site is set against a stunning natural backdrop, reflecting a commitment to healthy living and a synergy between health and leisure practices," says Brisson. "We have raised the bar in every respect with Scandinave Spa Whistler and this project will serve as a model for all of our future endeavours."

With an impressive, six-building complex featuring dry saunas, steam baths, hot and cold pools, massage rooms, solariums, and terraces with outdoor fireplaces, Scandinave Spa Whistler is the result of over ten years of expertise and innovation that has allowed the group to establish a formidable reputation in Canada and abroad. Scandinave Spa Mont-Tremblant was recently named one of the world's top twelve eco-friendly destinations by Organic Spa Magazine, and, along with Scandinave Spa Blue Mountain (Ontario), was named one of Canada's best outdoor spas by
