2018 Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Festival

...dream in the colour powder

Presenting the 12th annual Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Festival, February 23-25, 2018

Join us for the first time or for the twelfth or some number in between.

Placed perfectly at Whitewater Ski Resort, British Columbia – this event is at the powder mecca of the Kootenays and just a hop to the city hub of Nelson.  Punctuated with world-renowned snow and a breathtaking backdrop, Whitewater Ski Resort's terrain combined with the Selkirk's legendary snow, provide fantastic opportunities for all levels to ski, learn, share, compete, and celebrate on-area and backcountry pursuits.

The Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Festival was originally created to provide a grass-roots gathering where mountain enthusiasts of all levels can celebrate Kootenay mountain culture and general stoke for all forms of powder play.  We still hold true to this mission, and it is this very basic tenant that is the backbone of the success of this amazing three-day event. 

In addition to seasoned mountain veterans, Coldsmoke will please snow enthusiasts of all disciplines and ability level.  Come and dream with us in the colour powder... as a film festival enthusiast, on the dance floor competing for schwag, on an incredible backcountry tour with a CMCG guide, on a clinic with some of the industry's best coaches, hucking in one of the contests, racing randonnee on a punishing course, or frying an egg in the Backcountry Olympics.

Register online, by phone or in the office at 602 Lake Street in Nelson.  Any inquiries please email us at info@skiwhitewater.com
