WHY DO IT? MARKETS: because it's amazing! The activities and adventures in the Nelson and Kootenay Lake area are endless. Come check out our amazing selection of local farmers', artisans', and garden markets.
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.
We are excited to release the second video of our Winter Vibe video series in partnership with Whitewater Ski Resort.
One of the beautiful things about the Winter Vibe of Whitewater Ski Resort and Nelson-Kootenay Lake is that you get to #reconnect with the beauty around you.
Plenty of calm and white water adventures to be had in the Nelson Kootenay Lake area! Visit Nelson White Water Rafting or Nelson Paddle Board and Kayak Rentals to learn more.
