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 feet) 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).

Winter 2020/21 – What to Expect at the Resort:

  • As we are all aware, COVID-19 has brought much uncertainty around the globe. Whitewater Resort recognizes the importance of health and wellness of its community to be able to get outside during the winter season.
  • For the safety of staff and visitors, they have outlined COVID-19 protocols here to help create the safest environment for everyone.
