The Snowwater Difference...

We believe you are only as good as the legends that define you, and that this is the place to start building them. A legend can include experiences that are outside the realm of 'possibility' and can include unbelievable or dream-like occurences. Legends may seem unrealistic - even too good to be true.  

Discover the difference.



Small Group Heliskiing at its finest


Every day at Snowwater, three groups of four guests are matched up and privately guided through 150,000 acres of breathtaking terrain. Essentially that equates to volumes of deep powder, uninterrupted fall lines and no competition for fresh tracks!

Small group heli skiing is unlike any other type of skiing. It will magnify your entire wilderness experience in the mountains and change your life forever.

Our philosophy is to design innovative cuisine that never fails to dazzle even the most sophisticated palate. We have taken great care in our selection of wines and continually strive to add  something "new and surprising" to the wine list.

The Snowwater Experience

The Snowwater Experience
If you love to ski incredible terrain, in small groups, and be pampered before and after, Snowwater is the place! Patric and Maria and their staff are great at fulfilling every want you have, with fun and smiles!
Brenda Ruthizer
The best snow/terrain with the best people. The two times I have been we're two of the most amazing experiences I have had!
Max Nutini
Absolutely the best overall operation I have been to. The staff, and particularly the owners are fantastic. It is a warm and welcoming environment and my experience is by the end of your trip you feel like the staff is family and you have known the other guests, only 12 total at a time, forever.
Len Poirier
I can't even put into words how amazing this trip was.
Carl Peoples
This is one of those experiences which is explainable. You have to be here to appreciate all the Snowwater offers.
John Kane
Beyond all expectations
