Spent two days skiing here after the region got dumped on in February. Make sure you have a good 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up to the base. The road is a little steep!

Loved the slopes. They were a great challenge for my legs :)

Whitewater is a smaller spot than anywhere I've been so far in western Canada, but wasn't at all crowded and there was still way more terrain than I was able to cover.

The après ski wasn't bad either. Great food and beer in the bar in the chalet.

Look forward to going back again another season.

20 minutes from downtown Nelson and part of the powder triangle. If it's a good season elsewhere in the province, it will be an excellent season at Whitewater. Although it is a small hill, there are many challenging runs and some of the best powder in the province. The lodge has some of the best food of any ski resort.

Can't beat the great slops only 20 minutes from downtown Nelson.
Lots of runs on the mountain so lineups are rare...
Gotta do it!!

Not much of a hill with lousy access and drivers that think they own the road. seriously it;s not worth taking your life in your hands to access this small town hill.

White water is an awesome ski resort.It is on of the smaller resorts around when you consider vertical feet but it has done an awesome job packing a lot of ski-able terrain off its short lifts. There is very few groomed runs which is great if you are an more advanced skier looking to do some back- country skiing, they also have easy access back-country areas great for touring. Most of the terrain is steep and groomed making it less ideal for novice skiers. However it does have a handle tow and a good sized beginner area for those new to skiing or riding.
