Nelson is a pretty cool town- by far my favorite town we visited during our stay in interior BC.
Similar to how Boulder was about 10-15 years ago, Nelson has a lot of good things going for it.
The next morning, we headed to Whitewater.
This mountain, called Ymir, caught my immediate attention.
We met up with Juho and Laura, who are in Nelson for the winter from Finland, and their British friend, Gavin. Then, after purchasing a one-chair-ride ticket, out for a nice slackcountry tour we went! Frank and Juho checking out the choices.
Shortly after, we found ourselves hiking this ridge.
Juho, admiring the views!

Time to ski! Frank.
Looking back up at part of our line.
Gavin gearing up for our skin out of the valley.
When we reached the ridge, we parted from Gavin who wanted to make sure to watch the Olympic US v. Canada gold medal hockey game. Juho, Laura, Frank and I continued on for another lap.
Great day at Whitewater, despite catching the US losing gold to Canada 🙂 Whitewater, despite it’s small size, has a lot to offer. Thanks to Juho, Laura, and Gavin for showing us the goods!
