Whitewater is exactly what a little ski resort should be, great vibe, freindly people, when i was there the powder was amazing. Not sure if there is a resort in BC or Alberta that has better sidecountry access... you can hike and drop endless untouched lines from either lift. It would be a shame if whitewater ever changed. One of the sidecountry areas eventually spits you out on the access road to the ski hill, and i would be surprised if you had to wait more than 1 car to get a lift back to the hill

a hidden gem is a good description, if you like hiking and sidecountry it is one of the best destinations in western canada
