Close to Nelson BC

Mountain Ski is just a 45 minute drive to the unique hertitage town of Nelson BC. Being close to Nelson allows our guests to take in some Kootenay culture. Nelson has a lot to offer from shops to dining and eclectic coffee shops. Make visiting Nelson part of your Mountain Ski visit.

Visit the Hot Springs

We are nieghbors with Ainsworth Hot Springs. You can literally walk down the road and have a soak in the natural healing waters of the hot springs.

Warm up at the Ski Hill

Being in the Kootenay's means Mountain Ski is central to some World-class ski areas. Whitewater Ski Resort and Red Mountain are legendary in the skiing world. Consider starting your trip with a warm up at either resort.

Try Catskiing or Heliskiing

Mountain Ski is born out of a love for backcountry skiing. Much of that came from our experience at Snowwater Heliskiing and Valhalla Powdercats. Both operators are close to Mountain Ski and would combine perfectly with a Mountain Ski trip.
