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!!

Amazing little mountain with lots of trails for everyone. Enjoyed the deep snow, natural terrain, tree riding and the varied options. What a great mountain that isn't all commercialized and destroyed. Loved it.

We loved the friendliness of this ski resort. Great terrain for all levels and abilities and the lodge is awesome. Try the yam poutine with mushroom/miso gravy-yum!

Planned a five day trip to Nelson with a plan to ski three days at Whitewater with family. First date of Skiing was great and we foolishly bought a three day ski pass. Next day we got a late start (.trying to a place to eat breakfast in Nelson was difficult, either closed or not open till 9) Got to the hill at 10:30 and parking lots were full- no parking and no skiing. No sign or notice at the bottom of the hill. We drove all the way up and around all the parking lots and were told that we were out of luck. Won’t be back again to this place. Love Nelson but not worth planning a ski holiday if you can’t ski.
