The Whitewater Ski Resort Shuttle is offering slopefront service everyday! With daily operation throughout the season, multiple pick up/drop off points throughout Nelson and timed to get you on the mountain in time for first chair getting to Whitewater has never been so easy!
Ten reasons to take the shuttle:
1. Save your vehicle, no wear and tear on your rubber-tire ride.
2. Save fuel, gas could cost you more than your shuttle-ticket price depending on your car and how you drive it.
3. Save the environment, because a shuttle is a carpool and a carpool is always just better, especially emission wise.
4. Have your coffee, your green smoothie, your bran muffin - hands free on the shuttle!
5. Meet new people. Talk locals up about their favourite stashes and converse with stoked visitors here for a good time!
6. When you take the shuttle, you get FRONT DOOR SERVICE. You will not be searching for that sweet parking spot, nor will you be walking or traversing over to the lodge.
7. Ensure your safety, especially if you are going to have a couple pints of Faceplant at the end of your day.
8. Get there for the start of the day, when the lifts have just begun to spin and make sure you stay 'til last chair!
9. You are guaranteed a ride. Our shuttle drivers are never going to text you ten minutes before your pick up time, cancelling the carpool plans. You are ensured a ride when you take the shuttle, no matter what.
10. Relax, you don't have anything to worry about except whether or not you have enough base layers on and if you need to pick up an energy ball from Fresh Tracks Café before your first run. Take your eyes off the road and take in the majestic views on your way up. Just gaze up at Ymir and say a special thanks to Ullr!

........................................................................."Much of Whitewater’s tree skiing is fairly steep but the more consistent intermediate pitch of the trees skier’s left of the Glory Ridge chair are a great training area for those with less experience in the trees. Whitewater’s usually best-in-interior-BC lift-served snow conditions and low skier density are also major virtues." Tony Crocker
