Providing a safe and highly enjoyable skiing and boarding vacation is our highest priority. We have CAA industry leaders audit our standards annually to ensure we meet, and even exceed, all safety requirements for our industry.
Our guests are equipped with BCA airbags - a device proven to significantly reduce the chances of being buried in an avalanche. Each guest is also given a digital Tracker S beacon, avalanche probe and shovel, as well as a personal ICOM guest radio with external mike, enabling immediate communication with fellow skies, guides and our office dispatch while in the field.
Only three groups of four share our B3E A-star helicopter and 150,000 acres of remarkable terrain. Skiing in small groups mean we can cater to your specific group requests and desires. Skiing moves faster and is safer over all than large group heli or cat skiing.
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.
Our remote lodge is ’mountain chic’ and includes every creature comfort, including high speed internet and cell phone access.
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.
Our all-inclusive, unlimited vertical package is bar none the best priced package being offered in the industry. We challenge you to find better for the same quality.
We are easy to get to. Fly directly into Castlegar (YGR), or fly to Spokane, Wa - a three 1/2 hour drive away.

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.
