Whitewater Winter Resort
Whitewater Winter Resort information
Lonely Planet review
Known for its heavy powdery snowfall, which averages 1050cm per year, Whitewater Winter Resort features good skiing and boarding.
Unlike more-commercial places, Whitewater maintains its small-town charm. Whitewater has only two double chairs and a rope tow, but they can take you to an elevation of 2400m (the drop is 396m), where you can enjoy great powdery snow on 20 marked runs. Several snow-cat operators can take you to virgin territory for the day. There are 11 groomed Nordic trails. The resort is 18km south of Nelson off Hwy 6.
