Whitewater Ski Resort

It’s all about snow at Whitewater. This Kootenay mountain hideaway—set along the Powder Highway near the city of Nelson—has some of the deepest, driest powder around. More than 12 metres (39 feet) of snow falls on average over 623 vertical metres (2,044 vertical feet). Uncrowded slopes, family-friendly groomers, remarkable steeps, top-of-the-line tree-skiing, and endless backcountry are all found at this resort, which maintains a local ski-hill vibe.

  • Mar 30, 2019: “We had a sunny Spring ski day - our first time at Whitewater - and desire this being a strange winter, they still had plenty of snow. Spring snow. Aside from the skiing, we really came for lunch. We have every Whitewater Cooks cookbook, and lunch and treats lived up to our highest expectations. Delicious! Glory Bowl and Ymir Bowl. Yum! ” 2
