Whitewater Ski Resort is located 15 minutes outside of Nelson and is known for its powder slopes and dependable dry snowfall. A more intimate resort, Whitewater owes its well-deserved laid back reputation to short lift lines, reasonable prices and big hospitality. Whitewater offers a stunning array of steeps, deeps, chutes, bowls, glades, groomed cruisers and gentle rollers. Groomed Nordic trails for both skate and classic skiing, and snowshoeing, are also available at the Whitewater Nordic Centre. Whitewater is the ultimate natural winter playground. Internationally acclaimed the Fresh Tracks Cafe has four best selling cookbooks based around their fresh, organically inspired menu.
