Were there v5 and v6 2008. After traveling around half the globe to experience cushions, the disappointment did not notice any boundaries after a couple of days in Big White on old snow ... however, the ride turned and in Nelson the snow wiped down for several days in a row. Overall 1m of snow came during the stay so we really enjoyed. Positively was the snow, the simplicity, the restaurant in the hill, the town Nelson.
Negative was the ancient lifts that I totally thought of from the beginning, and if there is no snow, you quickly get tired of the slopes.

The whole retreat lies in the forest skiing that is completely unbeatable. You can figure out how far out, all roads carry to the highway, but it can be a good walk back to the lift again.

Highly recommend Nelson and White Water as part of the Canada trip. Nice to see how some reviewers pointed out the old-fashioned lifts already in 2001, so they were not exchanged until 2008 :)

Great potential but no newness when we were there. The pistachio slopes were nice but they are not so many so it's getting a bit tough with the piste. We took some rest days instead and did excursions instead. There are a lot of companies in the area that arrange Catski. With loosening, stubbornness and little will the area become super! Eat in the restaurant that has won prices as the best resturant in ski areas in BC, cheap too.
Nelson was total misery and a nice city compared to the other villages / towns we were in. Can recommend a trip to Einsworth hotsprings which is a couple of miles from the city as an excursion, nice way there too.

Nice little place both Nelson and the ski area.
Sorry, did not snow in two weeks when I was there 21-23 Feb. The area has potential but close to offpiste and well-prepared slopes (one can not say many places in Canada). Would imagine being there a longer to learn the area to go in. Accommodation, two walking home Dancing bear class as a small hotel quiet quiet quiet, across the street from the pub a little more quick place squirrel something.
Well worth a longer visit at the snowfall.

Nice little place. Cheap. Smoking prohibited in the two lifts, it may be necessary for Nelson to have some hippie status, but the ban is respected badly. The ride is nice in the sparse forest. Much snow, 12m a year on average. Nelson is a very nice, laid back little town comparatively. However, you want someone to be bothered by the resort and invest in a new lift to complete the two pre-war lifts and increase the fall height from 400m to the double. Then it would be really good.

An incredibly nice and charming ski resort. Not at all the same as elsewhere. Glee forest provides good snowmobiling.
The piste was okay with - good pistachio and good slope. One plus is that there are also many Swedes / Scandinavians here.
Go look at Nelson's Leaf's hockey when you're there :)

Sicken lovely lie. Had snow all night and continued far into the day. Thanks to that, Whitewater was really fun. On the other hand, if it was bad with snow, maybe the rating would be 1 or 2 maybe. Minus: Old lifts (Only 3 lifts in the system.) Some short slopes. Plus: Often a lot of snow, close to the city of Nelson, A delightfully laid back mood as it is in many Canadian small towns.
Was there at the beginning of March 2002.

A really cozy mountain in redneck country. The lifts feel a bit of the 2nd World War, but there is nothing wrong with the ride and the snow. The legend says that the chef who runs the restaurant used to feed Hollywood's gorgonzola-spotted society with goodies, but one day tired and went to BC to cook for skiers. Anyway, at least, the food is excellent in the hill, at least with North American dimensions. Stay in the hippie city of Nelson (where the movie Roxane with Steve Martin was recorded). In Nelson, you can not miss breakfast on the main street, I do not remember the name of the restaurant but it says "Best brekfast in town" on the sign. Ned Flanders from Simpsons serves -Oklilidokely. Both the food and the serving is a cannon.

A small and really charming pillow case. The snow is light, falls in quantity and is enough for everyone! Very good off piste. Skip the food bag and try the food at the back !! The town of Nelson is two miles from the hillside and has coolest restaurants, shops and honestly nice people.
