What's it like at Whitewater resort?
Nelson, BC is a hidden gem located in the legendary Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia. Known for deep pow, Whitewater Ski Resort boasts a dependable dry snowfall that often totals over 12 meters (40 feet) during a season. Terrain consists of open bowls, glades, chutes, and tree skiing: accessable from 3 chairlifts, the Glory Chair installed in the 2010/2011 season. This lift nearly doubled the skiable area on the backside of the mountain. Whitewater owes its reputation to the laid-back people of Nelson, short lift lines, reasonable prices, and big hospitality. Don't worry about packing a lunch, because the world-renowned Fresh Tracks cafe at the day lodge is sure to impress. A spectacular setting, impressive amenities, deep snow, and delicious food...Whitewater is a place like no other. Come experience a true sample of Kootenay Mountain Culture.

Visitor Reviews of Whitewater
Dave from Canada writes:
Whitewater is awful. I don't know who is measuring the elevation here as it's basically about 10m of vert. Food is terrible. Fights all the time in the lines to the chairlifts. Chairs load backwards. I can't believe the installed fans to blow all the snow away! All the tree runs are out of bounds. Snowboarders aren't allowed. The lifties spit on you as you get on the lift.
I'll be back again next year (9th time's the charm, right?)
