While there is no accommodation at Whitewater Ski Resort, there are lots of choices in Nelson. For the best possible deal on a lift ticket, inquire about Ski and Stay Packages.
There are several quality hotels in and around the downtown core, along with a resort hotel set alongside the lake. Less expensive motels can be found on the outskirts of town.
