About the Resort

Located along Canada’s famous Powder Highway, high above the authentic mountain city of Nelson, lays Whitewater Ski Resort. Whitewater is renowned for receiving over 12 metres of light, dry, powder snow every season. Despite the big snow fall, Whitewater has a peaceful, uncrowded atmosphere. Where the simple things once again have meaning, Whitewater focuses on providing fresh in-house made meals and genuine hospitality, complimented by epic skiing and mountain adventure.

With its legendary deep powder and endless terrain, Whitewater Ski Resort is attracting attention from across Canada and around the world from those in search of their ideal BC winter ski vacation. Over 623 metres of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls, and glades lays beneath the ski resort's majestic Ymir Peak. In addition to the dry deep powder, varied terrain, easy access to the backcountry and spectacular views, Whitewater has a welcoming, family-friendly and community-oriented atmosphere. With a deep appreciation for the uniqueness of the area, Whitewater enjoys fostering the unique culture and preserving the stunning environment.

Whitewater had humble beignnings: in 1934, the first ski lodge was opened in the north end of town. A small rope tow driven by the rear axle of an ancient Model-T Ford was the transport, and long wooden skis and bear trap bindings the equipment of choice. In the modern age, Whitewater continues to gain notoriety in national ski magazines and the ski film scene. Today, skier visits are climbing steadily as skiers and riders search out an alternative to the larger resorts. The ambiance and reputation of Whitewater's charm is closely guarded, ensuring a peaceful getaway for every visitor.
