While you are at Snowwater, we want you to treasure every moment from the deep powder outside to our unique mountaintop vibe on the inside.
In the summer of 2013 we expanded the Main Lodge to include a large professional kitchen, a bar & games room, and a wine cellar. Two years later we added yet another wine cellar, hidden in a back room - Euro-style. We love nothing better than to walk you through the cellars, showing you all our showpiece wines. We like drinking them with you too!
The founder of Snowwater, Patric Maloney, is also our in-house certified sommelier. Patric thrives on travelling the world to bring home hidden treasures to share with you. His passion for wine spills over into the Snowwater experience as he often cracks open a perfectly paired bottle to accompany the evening specialty.
We can't wait to share all this with you!
Those of you who know us understand that our passion for powder is only matched by our love for unique wine and fine cuisine. Receiving the wine spectators award and being recognized internationally for our collection has been a dream come true. Over the years we have procured a diverse catalogue of wine from all over the World. Whether it be the local hills of the Okanagan Valley in BC, or as far away as Burgundy, we love it all.
When not shredding kootenay pow, Patric and Maria live to be on their bikes. They always make an annual trip to explore the vinyards of the world in search of the next perfect addition to the cellar.
We acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Okanagan Synlix, the Ktunaxa, and the Sinixt peoples, and is home to the Métis and many diverse Indigenous persons.
