Nearby Whitewater Resort offers one of B.C. best skiing and snowboarding. This little gem is a bit ‘old school’, with no high speed quads, it a blast into the past. Catch it on a day of powder and your in ski heaven!

As for staying in Nelson, no problem, a home rental is the way to go. Or a room in a fancy hotel downtown is also great. Be sure to check out the Bakery in he back alley….by far the best bread in B.C.
