Welcome to Whitewater ski resort in British Colombia, Canada. Get ready for some of the best backcountry ski terrain anywhere on earth. Deep powder snow is aplenty here!

Located about 25 minutes from Nelson, BC, this incredible resort sits in the Ymir bowl and beneath the impressive 2,400m Ymir Mountain.

Part of the Selkirk mountains that are themselves part of the greater Colombia Mountain range, Ymir and Whitewater form a beautiful alpine setting of pine forests, lakes and glaciers.

The Whitewater area receives abundant dry snow, with roughly 12 metres anually so you won’t be short of deep powder snow!

It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or advanced skier, I will cater the day’s events to your ability and preferences.

The backcountry skiing terrain at Whitewater ski resort is wild and varied giving us so many options. With small groups I can keep a close eye on everyone throughout the fun!

The area is easily accessed by a road into the resort and ski lifts that offer a swift route to the different daily start points.

You’ll find a good assortment of open tree skiing, alpine bowls and great ski peaks. The day tours that we offer include: Ymir Peak, Five mile basin, Kutetl creek, Qua creek and Evening ridge!

You’ll also be able to expand your avalanche safety knowledge through learning from a highly experienced and passionate guide.

Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!



Can not review - guide cancelled but the trip was not to Perce Rock if we had gone - sadly.. tour was was what was advertised and destination was not where planned Ultimately the full day paddle was canceled by the guide company Effort was there and communication was good! Just booked what I wanted and was not what the guide could offer …
