    This was 15 minutes, NOT 15 miles (24kms) from Fernie
    Best water ever!!!

    more precise directions!

    Leaving Fernie SW on Hwy 93… the spring is located 11.8 km from the turn-off to Fernie Ski Resort. It is on the right hand side of the road at a Rest Stop pull-out. A couple brown animal-proof trash bins are there.

    When travelling from Elko towards Fernie, the spring is at least 10 km, and after the tunnel through the mountain. Look for the Rest Stop on the left hand side of the road.

    Oh yeah, it was the best water EVER!!

    Possibly the best spring I’ve been to in all of BC/Alberta 🙂

    It was our best water until someone put a sewer pipe through it and now the water is grey, nothing runs through the white water pipe anymore

    This Spring is delicious!

    The pinned location on the map is totally off though! We drove around for way too long looking for it!

    I pinned it on google maps when I was standing at the spring. It is 11 miles SE of Fernie and 8 miles NE of Elko!

    It’s a little pull off on the west side of the road with two brown metal waste bins there. The spring itself is a white pipe coming out of the hill. On the other side of the road is also a pull off with no waste bins or signs or anything.

    This water has been hydrating me like none other!
    Hope you find it!

      Was just there on July 10, 2016 and the water is still running.

      I agree with Nancy that the PVC pipe does not look the greatest but the water is clear and tasted great.

      I think I remember only 1 green garbage bin now and I wooden plank has been added so you don’t get your shoes muddy or wet when you grab some water.

      Nice little stop!
