Whitewater Ski Resort

Whitewater Ski Resort


Located along Canada's famous Powder Highway, high above the authentic mountain city of Nelson, lays Whitewater Ski Resort. Where the simple things once again have meaning.  Whitewater focuses on providing good quality snow, fresh in-house made meals and genuine hospitality. Often defined as 'humble yet huge', the resort sees an average snowfall of 12 metres (40 fee) that blankets the playful terrain of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls, glades and soft groomers all at the base elevation of 1,650 metres (5,400 ft).

Whitewater Ski Resort's original chairlift, the Summit Chair, will be replaced with a brand new Leitner-Poma fixed-grip quad chairlift. After 41 years of sweeping guests up the slopes, the Summit Chair will have a new look and feel starting the 2017/2018 winter season.
