Owner description: It's all about the Snow...Cradled in BC’s legendary Selkirk Mountains, renowned for epic winters, Whitewater’s dependable dry snowfall totals over 13.5 meters a season. That’s more than 44 feet. And there’s more. Factor in the 5,400ft/ 1,640m base elevation, world renowned Fresh Tracks Cafe and you have the most reliable ski resort in the west.Come experience True Kootenay Mountain Culture.

We went twice during a period when they had not received any significant accumulation for over 10 days. Non-groomed runs were pretty beat up but the few we took really showed their potential given better conditions. Overall we enjoyed our days and would return given better snow conditions. P.S. the lifts are old and slow, but this is old-time skiing so enjoy the ride and the view.

Best snow anywhere. Locals love that no one has noticed "their" mountain. Can't stay a secret forever. it's epic.

My home ski hill, WH2O. The best ski hill i have ever snowboard. Lodge is cozy and filled with locals. Foods are amazing whatever I order. Friendly service staff and knowledgable about the hill and the town of Nelson. Easy access to backcountry and powder everywhere. I would recommend this place for advanced riders and skiers. They are beginners runs as well but again if you are advanced level, you definitely have fun here. They never let me down.
