Whitewater Ski Resort

Whitewater Ski Resort

Pure, Simple & Real...Deep

Nestled deep in British Columbia's Kootenay Rockies is a one-of-a-kind winter resort. Whitewater is the perfect place for skiers/riders who have a passion for winter and an appreciation for the authentic.  Far from the hustle and bustle of today's bigger resorts, Whitewater owes its laid back reputation to the small lift lines, and big hospitality.

 

 

Resort Overview

Cradled in B.C.'s legendary Selkirk Mountains, Whitewater is renowned for its dependable and dry snowfalls that total over 40 feet per season. There aren't many resorts that receive such big snowfalls on such a regular basis.  With its 2,000 ft vertical and 1,300 acres of skiable terrain, there's plenty of snow to go around. 

Whitewater's full-service day lodge has everything you'll need for a great day on the mountain. Take advantage of the childcare center if you want to do a bit of skiing on your own.  Satisfy all your equipment needs at the Whitewater Store or the rental/repair shop.  Visit the Fresh Tracks Cafe for a great meal that's prepared right in front of you.  Cap off your day with some locally brewed beer and apres ski snacks at Coal Oil Johnny's Pub.  After a long day of shredding powder, you've earned it.
