Whitewater Ski Resort maintains a network of multi-purpose winter trails. This area provides accessible winter alpine scenery and is available for snowshoeing as well as skiing, fat biking, and dog-walking.
The Skattebo Reach Trail connects from Glade to Castlegar, contouring above the Kootenay River. It’s a pleasant forested route with the blue-green river peeking through the woods. McPhee Creek makes a good turnaround point if you don’t want to head all the way to the Brilliant Substation near Castlegar.
