This ski hill is a hill with big mountains around it. After traveling from Fernie, we went to Whitewater and the mountains seemed pretty small. We will have to go back in the winter to find out how much snow there is.

Awesome terrain, great feel to the whole mountain, and amazing food at the lodge. Not the biggest mountain, but very nice to not have the whole hill covered in condos. Friendly lifties and ski patrol, and great scenery.

Worth a trip to the kootenays to visit both red mountain and White Water ski resorts. If you are lucky enough to catch prime ski conditions you are in for world class skiing with minimal lines and a small town atmosphere. A gem. Best ski conditions are usually January and February but you will find powder most of the year.... More

Wow, what a great place to ski. Took a day away from Red Mountain to try Whitewater based on a recommendation, very glad we did. We were welcomed at the base lodge by Joanna, one of the mountain's friendly ski hosts, then spent two hours touring the best of W/H20. Don't let the initial small chair on the left fool... More

My friends and I travelled to Whitewater from Panorama (about 4.5 hours), with the hope of a couple of days of powder skiing. Unfortunately it had rained a couple of days before we got there, and so conditions were not good, so we only skied one day. That said, it was worth the trip. The mountain is beautiful, with fantastic... More

For the first time I tried snowboarding and could not choose a better spot to start. I loved every minute from the 5 days I spent at WH20 Resort. A big thank you to Adam, our instructor from UK, he has been very patient with me and my friend and we have been able to progress fast and try all... More

Went to the cold smoke event and had great snow and a good time. You have to experience the food in the lodge. Not surprising they have their own cook book for this place. Local flavour and locals make this place. If there is new snow expected get up and go early as the whole town will be closed and... More

The new lift on the back side of the mountain is where we spent most of our time. Nice runs for length and challenge.

We had a fantastic day of skiing at Whitewater. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was amazing and the snow and the runs was perfect. Will be back for sure!
