Nelson is the undiscovered jewel of western Canada.
Here you will find stunning scenery, with the largest inland lake in British Columbia, Kootenay Lake, abundant wildlife, natural hot springs, every recreation you can imagine; world class golfing, fishing, skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking…just to name a few.
We have a wonderful climate, giving us warm summer days, with all the water sports you can imagine…swimming, fishing, water skiing, tubing, or off to the Hot Springs. Then there is winter and our epic powder. “Ski Canada” rated Whitewater as Best Deeps, Best Bowls, and Best Glades. “Powder Magazine” declared it among the best powder in British Columbia.
Nelson has a vast arts community; hundreds of musicians, painters, where you may see their pieces in “ArtWalk” or at the new Museum and Art Gallery. We are a accepting community, otherwise known as ‘alternative’…most anyone will be at home here.
