Nelson, BC is a hidden gem located in the legendary Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia. Known for deep pow, Whitewater Ski Resort boasts a dependable dry snowfall that often totals over 12 meters (40 feet) during a season. Terrain consists of open bowls, glades, chutes, and tree skiing: accessable from 3 chairlifts, the Glory Chair installed in the 2010/2011 season. This lift nearly doubled the skiable area on the backside of the mountain. Whitewater owes its reputation to the laid-back people of Nelson, short lift lines, reasonable prices, and big hospitality. Don't worry about packing a lunch, because the world-renowned Fresh Tracks cafe at the day lodge is sure to impress. A spectacular setting, impressive amenities, deep snow, and delicious food...Whitewater is a place like no other. Come experience a true sample of Kootenay Mountain Culture.

Whitewater is excited to host the 8th annual Whitewater Winter Carnival weekend! Tons of family activities throughout the weeekend, with a to-die-for feast catered by our very own Fresh Tracks Cafe. Fireworks too!


Whitewater is pleased to announce the 6th annual Smith Optics Junior Freeski Competition happening January 24 - January 27, 2019. This Big Mountain Freeskiing competition is for ages 7 to 18 years who will be judged on 5 different categories as described below. Skiers are rewarded for using the terrain creatively and officially are scored based on line choice, fluidity, style, control, and aggressiveness as they navigate through black and double black ski terrain featuring cliffs, airs, moguls, and anything else the mountain can throw at them. The terrain chosen has a designated start location, left and right boundaries, and a finish line. Where competitors go is totally up to them. This type of competition meshes really well with the Kootenay mentality and terrain.
Categories will be broken into: Boys 7-11, Girls 7-11, Boys 12-14, Girls 12-14, Boys 15-18, Girls 15-18


It is hard to believe that the Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Fest is rolling into its' 10th year already! The festivities run from February 22-24, 2019 and with various ability levels, it is the perfect way to get into backcountry touring, work on perfecting your backcountry skills, or learn new tricks while cruising in bounds terrain with coaches and instructors. This festival is for all ability levels, and there are plenty of in-bounds workshops for both snowboarders and skiers.

Visitor Reviews of Whitewater

Laurie Clarke from Canada writes:

I had the chance to ski Whitewater last week. I can only try to describe to you how I felt my heart open as we drove up the windy road to the base lodge. Whitewater is surely one of the last pristine untouched skiers paradises left. It's simplicity and grandness allows a person to connect with nature and challenge oneself to the limit. The divide between heaven and earth is almost indistinguishable. Everything about the environment is perfect. I thank you for honouring the integrity of the area and what Whitewater is about and hope that skiers for years to come have the opportunity to share in the sheer bliss of your heavenly hill. This is a special place on earth!
