Youth Programs

......................................................................................

Whitewater is a great place for kids!  We have developed comprehensive programming for kids ages 4–12.  The Whitewater Ski & Board Club offers the age categories Little Muckers for kids ages 4-5 and The Jokers for kids ages 6-8.  Both of these programs are open to any ability level and is designed to give youth the skills needed to become great skiers and riders. The Whitewater Ski and Board club will naturally develop your child’s skills through fun activities and games. They will learn the correct technique, be made aware of mountain safety and responsibility, build confidence and learn control, all while meeting new ski buddies.

Freestyle Club is a nationally run program for skiers which focuses on terrain parks and freestyle skiing technique.
Also make sure to check out our Holiday Camps that run during Christmas and Spring Break.
For teen programs or for more advanced programs for youths aged 10-18 please check out the Whitewater Freeride Teams.

"This was my first year living in Nelson and Whitewater delivered more than I could have ever hoped for. I had a chance to tour the powder highway and some of the big mountains BC has to offer and all I wanted to do was come back to WH2O and drop into backside. If you are looking for steep and deep, this is the place to go!"
