Whitewater Ski Resort boasts some of the best snow in the Kootenay’s and is just a few kilometers out of Nelson. Whitewater is smaller than many resorts in area and doesn’t have a condo village, which is awesome for those looking for something a bit less commercialized. Not to worry though, as they still have 3 chairs, a beginner area, skiing for all ability levels, a terrain park, and ridiculously fluffy snow in the bowls. Riding here never gets old.

The lodge includes a cafe, a pub area, and a restaurant. The food here is renowned among the skiing and foodie crowds as some of the best any ski hill has to offer, with unique dishes and traditional fare.
