We will be posting an updated version of our Environment Review as soon as it becomes available. Please check back for updates and have a great summer!

February 2002
Cascade Environmental Resource Group Ltd. (CERG) was retained by Whitewater Ski Resort Ltd. to conduct an Environmental Review of the resort including its existing Controlled Recreation Area (CRA) and its proposed expanded CRA as per the Plan for Expansion and Improvement (Whitewater, 2002). The primary objective of conducting the review is to identify environmental issues arising from mountain resort development and operation.

In the Plan of the Expansion and Improvement of Whitewater Ski Resort Ltd. (Whitewater, 2002), a series of planning objectives are outlined as follows:

  • Low trail density and utilization standards
  • Ensure that, once implemented, resultant plans offer guests a well-balanced resort experience
  • Find and incorporate more beginner and intermediate skiing facilities
  • Develop backcountry adventure opportunities
  • Acquire tenure to adjacent land
  • Establish "ski to/ski from" and "direct amenity" residential developments
  • Preserve natural features and minimize environmental impacts while integrating proposed development plans.

"If you like deep snow, steep tree lines, and access to some fantastic lift assisted backcountry, Whitewater is for you. With over 45 ft a year of the white fluffy stuff there is nothing a person could like more"
