Cross-Country skiing (Dave Heath photo)
Whitewater Ski Resort's Nordic ski trails and a dedicated snowshoe trail share many of the same qualities that distinguish this resort from the rest of the pack.
Cross-country Ski Trails
Groomed and track-set daily for both classic and skate technique, the terrain is 100% Whitewater – with significant changes in elevation over the 15km/9mi of trails. The resort uses the same easiest, more difficult and most difficult classification for the 13 cross-country trails as it does for the alpine runs. Expect a few technique-testing hills along the way – even on trails that come with the easiest designation.
The scenery is gorgeous, with designated viewpoints identified on the trail map. En route for Hummingbird Pass, for example, skiers traverse the sunny, south-facing slope of White Queen Mountain, and can enjoy fantastic views from Evening Lookout.
