Whether it's an epic pow day, great friends, or one of many events hosted by Whitewater Ski Resort; there is always something to celebrate here in the Nelson Kootenay Lake region.
The Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Fest was created to provide a grass-roots gathering where mountain enthusiasts of all levels can celebrate our local culture with a breathtaking backdrop on world-renowned snow.
Epic powder is one way to describe winter in the Nelson Kootenay Lake area. The cat ski experience is more than just skiing; it's the culture, the food, the friends and the memories: it's what we refer to as "The Winter Vibe".
The Winter Vibe encapsulates many outdoor sports, but there is an awakening of activities to do when not on the slopes too.
