About
Whitewater Ski Resort, quietly legendary, is hard to describe to those who have not had the privilege to experience its true authenticity and abundance of snow. Over 12 meters (40 feet) of snow falls each season on 2044 vertical feet of uncrowded slopes of family-friendly groomers and bumps, remarkable steeps, top of the line tree-skiing, and endless backcountry. Some come for the legendary skiing, and some come for the legendary food. Whitewater serves up proper Kootenay hospitality with its internationally acclaimed menu that has inspired four National Best Selling cookbooks. Whitewater. Pure, simple and real…DEEP

Power goes out often, lifts get closed often, food is fine but over priced. The hill is always a mess on pow days. Just tired of being disappointed by this place.

I am used to groomed European slopes. Facilities at Whitewater were very good but in my eyes more suited to the experienced skier. I am 64 and unfortunately not skied enough to make full benefit of Whitewater

Nelson and WW have lost the vibe. So busy, long lineups for tracked out runs. People are snobby and don't smile anymore. Vaxxed and unvaxxed segregated. The artists that made this place cool seem to be gone.

Visual discrimination available to anyone who cares to glance at a skiiers pass...they lied to pass holders about amenities available to them and then changed those amenities after the end of early bird pass buying was over. Have lost ALL respect for this hill that I've once loved deeply.

Won’t spend one penny here. Complete discrimination. You should be embarrassed! Nelson is about community, people like you are not what we stand for.

I have never had my privacy and human right breached by a ski hill in so many ways in my life. Gross

Feb. 26, first time up this weird season...was impressed with Covid protocols, felt safe. Had avoided due to Covid, but happy I went up. The snow, as usual, was great!

The mountain speaks for itself but the staff and food are also exceptional. One of the best all around ski experiences you can have.

The resort is doing a great job this trying year, even on a day with lousy conditions (after rain and 3 cm of new snow, it was like skiing the groomed runs on ball bearings).

If they can get foot rests on at least 1 chair, I would return. I thought my ankles were going to fall off with the weight of the skis and boots dangling from the chair. Maybe I'm slightly older and spoiled, but I really wanted to ski and if I'm in agony by 2 pm, it really puts a damper on the day. I ended up using the old fashioned ski pole straps on my skis and balancing the poles under the back rest. (My younger ski friend had never seen this done - we used to have to do it all the time before foot rests became standard on most chairs.)

We loved skiing Whitewater over the holidays. We felt safe and well taken care off. The snow conditions were great and everything was well organized. All services ran very smoothly including the lift line ups. Staff and guests followed all the Covid protocols that were in place. The resort's website explains everything really well: what to expect this season, how to book your lift tickets, how to reserve a table to have lunch, etc. Whitewater ski resort should be commended for a job well done!!
