WHITEWATER - The home of the hidden powder stash
Just up the road from Nelson BC is the hidden treasure of White Water. A locals resort in a special location, which gets an unfair amount of fresh powder.
White Water just has 1,180 acres of terrain, but what terrain. Mostly off piste, mostly steep trees. This resort is a powder hounds paradise.
Stay in the funky town of Nelson where there is an excellent range of accommodation, or day trip it from Red Mountain. White Water is a great day out.
