This mountain has to be one of the best kept secrets in Canada! To be fair it is really not a great place for the piste only skier..... Except that the food and coffee is better than any other ski hill in Canada ... So come for just that!!!
However off piste is where Whitewater excels.... My friends ( very serious skiers!!!!) told me that with the new Glory Ridge chair Whitewater has some of the best glading in Canada....they were correct!
However it is often difficult as a visitor to get to the best spots. This is where Whitewater has hit on a winner! Their IN DEEP programme where for $20 they will guide you into the locals' spots is a complete winner!! After 2 sessions I still had no idea where I was but Duncan and Alex respectively had shown me some of the best stashes on the mountain... This has to be the best deal in Canada!! Combined with friendly staff, amazing ski hosts, kids who ski like demons, food to die for ( and you can buy the recipe book) this is a must go to Mountain! And while you are there stay in Nelson as your base! For a serious skier/ boarder ( yes there is even a place to those who have gone across to the dark side!!) you will die happy after going here!!!
