With 150,000 acres of terrain we have plenty of pow for everyone. Remember, only 3 groups of 4 guests a day means volumes of light, Kootenay powder, just for you.
Snowcat backup means you ski every day, all day - guaranteed. Unlike other operations now offering snowcat backup we were initially a snowcat operation, so the quality of our backup terrain is superb.
We are 80% repeat business - a number that clearly defines how our clients feel about where they want to spend their hard earned dollars - over and over.
We are easy to get to. Fly directly into Castlegar (YGR), or fly to Spokane, Wa - a three 1/2 hour drive away.
OUR AIM IS TO REDEFINE EFFICIENT SERVICE WITH AN EFFORTLESS STYLE AND FUN-LOVING ATTITUDE.
Snowwater is a small and intimate lodge catering to only twelve guests at a time. we are able to offer authentic hospitality, and we strive to make people feel completely at home with us. We emphasize attentive yet unobtrusive service in order to provide you with a superior personalized experience.
The team at Snowwater is our most valuable resource. We choose our staff carefully and take great pride in the people who work with us to help perpetuate the Snowwater dream. Our staff-to-guest ratio is virtually one to one, allowing us to provide a level of service that is unmatched in the ski industry. We hire only friendly and accomplished individuals who share a passion for deep powder skiing and living well.
Our guides and pilots are the best in the business. Seasoned knowledgeable professionals, they ensure an atmosphere that is both safe and efficient, yet relaxed and informal. Day after day of fresh deep powder usually leads to sore muscles. Our massage therapists provide a range of therapeutic techniques guaranteed to soothe and renew. Hot stone massage, reflexology and deep tissue massage are a few of the options available. But that’s not all! Our masterful barmen are innovative and skillful, offering delicious drinks such as the strawberry basil martini, or the bacon-laden Caesar. Unique evening events can include celebratory shooters at the ice bar, or an evening mine tour in the snowcat.
Together, we aim to produce a holiday experience that is as exclusive as it is personalized. We endeavour to provide the holiday of a lifetime and to fulfill your deepest powder fantasies.
