There’s a reason this one-of-a-kind ski resort has been considered by Powder Magazine as “one of best powder mountains on the continent.” Located on the famous Powder Highway in British Columbia, just outside of Nelson, Whitewater Ski Resort is graced with an average of over 40 feet of light, dry snow every season. Its abundance of natural terrain featuring over 2,045 feet of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls and glades across its 1,184 acres is accessed by just three chairlifts. This lift-serviced backcountry scene has given the mountain legendary status amongst avid skiers and off-piste snowboarders. Best of all, big crowds and lift lines are virtually non-existent at Whitewater.
Off mountain, guests of Whitewater can head into nearby Nelson, just 15 minutes from the mountain, and enjoy over 40 restaurants, an array of accommodation options, hot springs and a winter vibe unlike any other. For those in search of a truly authentic ski vacation experience, you’ll find it at Whitwater Ski Resort.
