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.

  • Jun 3, 2018: “Even in late May the views here are gorgeous. Snow on the peaks and in the bowl. It was fun to see the road signs so high off the ground because of all the snow they receive in the winter. Must be a great place to ski!” 1
  • Apr 12, 2018: “Came up for a day of spring skiing. Unfortunately the snow wasn’t super pow that day. The hill was large and the lines were really short so that nice, however the price and the fact there is only two chair lifts and no good trick park was a little dissaponting. We came back a couple of days later when 41cm of snow fell overnight and we were really dissaponted that the snow plow never came because that meant we couldn’t get up the mountain. If I find myself in Nelson again I might go up whitewater if it’s a good pow day.” 2
