When valley cloud settles in over the West Arm, as it often does in winter, Nelsonites head for the hills.
Less than half an hour from downtown Nelson there is skiing, snowboarding, ski touring, snowshoeing, track-set Nordic trails, and the promise of some otherwise elusive sunshine at Whitewater Ski Resort.
US-based Powder Magazine summed up what locals have known and loved for years: "If you took everything that mattered and put into one area, you would have Whitewater."
Whitewater Ski Resort
Whitewater Ski Resort receives an average annual snowfall of 12m/39ft, and according to Ski Canada magazine, has the "Best Deeps, Best Bowls, and Best Glades." The terrain consists of 12% beginner, 32 % intermediate and 56% advanced areas.
