As Nature Intended - SNOW & TERRAIN

With mother nature blanketing the resort in over 12 meters (40 feet) of snow annually, there are no snowmaking machines to be found - but you will find 614 metres (2014 feet) of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls, and some of the best glade skiing on the planet at your feet. Whether you're new to the slopes or a seasoned pro, Whitewater has an abundance of stellar terrain options for every skier and rider.
