It was a season unlike any other. And it’s one that some folks didn’t think would even happen.

Despite Whistler-Blackcomb, Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Big White making the decision to pull the plug early, our little ski hill up the road Whitewater managed to stay open.

The resort implemented a number of protocols to manage the COVID situation.

Jensen said the resort was down 75% in day ticket revenue over the course of the season.
