Owner description: It's all about the Snow...Cradled in BC’s legendary Selkirk Mountains, renowned for epic winters, Whitewater’s dependable dry snowfall totals over 13.5 meters a season. That’s more than 44 feet. And there’s more. Factor in the 5,400ft/ 1,640m base elevation, world renowned Fresh Tracks Cafe and you have the most reliable ski resort in the west.Come experience True Kootenay Mountain Culture.

Mid week skiing. Hill was not crowded. Lots of choice for our intermediate level. Old style ( with the post in the middle) double chairs and one triple. Not a problem as the skiing was great! No powder for us but snow was good with a few thin areas. There is a ton of glade skiing to be had when there is powder.
As mentioned before great food on hill!

Loved the ski hill. Older chair lifts but they move you and the runs are the perfect length. Lots of tree/glade skiing, fabulous snow, scenery is beautiful. Fresh Tracks Cafe in the lodge has some of the best ski hill food we've had. A hidden gem as it is tucked away in BC.

Thanks to having a nephew work at the ski hill I was finally able to afford to hit the slopes this year.
I wish I could remember the name of the fellow at the rental shop as he was super friendly and helpful. Lucky for me there was fresh powder and great weather. My new favorite winter destination.

Their tag line says it all. This is my favorite ski area in North America.. Not only is the skiing awesome, the food is great.

Whitewater doesn't need all the bells and whistles that other ski resorts have adopted because Whitewater has exactly what everyone is looking for; lots to explore and beautiful snow. The food in the cafe is unbeatable & offers fair prices, plus healthy & delicious options.
