The Experience

Real Deep

What do you get when you add over 40 feet of annual snowfall, delicious, mega flavorful pow chow, and an unbeatably friendly community? The Powder Formula: WH2O. If you're looking for the ski vacation experience of a lifetime, you'll find it nestled in the Selkirk Mountains here at Whitewater Ski Resort.

Go DEEP - Unrivaled Snowfall

Pure simple and real...DEEP. Whitewater Ski Resort is renowned for receiving a stoke-inducing 12+ metres (40 feet) of light, dry powder every season. Located 20 minutes outside of Nelson in the Selkirk Mountains, Whitewater's average temperature of -8 makes for ideal conditions whether you're hitting pillow lines or carving groomers.
