Owner description: It's all about the Snow...Cradled in BC’s legendary Selkirk Mountains, renowned for epic winters, Whitewater’s dependable dry snowfall totals over 13.5 meters a season. That’s more than 44 feet. And there’s more. Factor in the 5,400ft/ 1,640m base elevation, world renowned Fresh Tracks Cafe and you have the most reliable ski resort in the west.Come experience True Kootenay Mountain Culture.

“Great old school, small town hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

Small old double chairs. A little tricky to get on so maybe not the best if you are new to skiing but I liked them. They add to the charm. And help preserve the powder. Great terrain. Lots of tree skiing.
Food is among the best of any ski hill anywhere. Don't bring a lunch, eat here, it is worth it.

Great snow, no lines and the best food of any ski-hill in north america! The new chair has opened up some excellent new terrain and we will be back every winter.

Try the fantastic menu at the lounge/restaurant in the ski hill lodge. Dine at the Thai restaurant on Victoria street in Nelson.
