Art Ski

During our Community Week (March 15th - 19th, 2021) we wanted to give a little extra love to our local artists by featuring local artists work on some of our runs at the mountain. Whitewater will be covering the costs of printing pieces on coroplast and mounting on the ski runs, because of this we will only be able to have a limited amount of pieces printed. If you would like your work to be considered for this please submit the below form by 4:00 pm on Sunday, February 28th.

About the organizations

AABBS - AABBS is a non-profit society founded in the spring of 2009 by a group of Nelson ski industry and business professionals concerned about the increasing numbers of teens venturing out into the backcountry without any avalanche and/or mountain safety training. The mission of AABBS is to raise awareness and educate youth in decision-making about backcountry travel and avalanche safety by providing age-appropriate courses in the West Kootenay region.

Nelson Community Food Centre - The Nelson Community Food Centre strives to create a welcoming environment where people facing adversity can access healthy food, join a cooking or gardening program, and be a part of a community centered on nutritious food and fun social activities.

A Local is defined as those residing in the Slocan Valley (Slocan, Winlaw, New Denver, Silverton), Nelson, Castlegar, North Shore (Proctor/Harrop), East Shore (Riondel, Crawford Bay to Creston), Kaslo, Salmo/Ymir, Trail, and Rossland. (Please see map for reference)
