Skiing & Snowboarding
Skiing (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Whitewater Ski Resort is for two kinds of skiers and snowboarders – those who were born to ski or board, and those who want to work hard to improve.
There is beginner terrain here, but pass on the green runs and the real nature of this mountain begins to emerge. It's no accident that Whitewater trail maps make no mention of intermediate runs. Instead, the green, blue and black colour-coding refers to easier, more difficult and most difficult.
Deep Powder at Whitewater
Powder Magazine calls Whitewater Ski Resort "one of the best powder mountains on the continent." With an average annual snowfall of 12m/39ft, and a base elevation of 1,646m/5,400ft, snow conditions here hold up better than almost anywhere else – even in an El Niño year.
