Ski Area – Currently there are 49 ski trails on 117 hectares of terrain at Whitewater. At buildout the number of ski trails will grow to 144 on a total of 413 hectares. In addition to the developed terrain, the lift and trail configuration will provide access to approximately 700 more hectares of skiable terrain all within the CRA.
Technically, based on the proposed developed trails, the resort can grow from the existing 1,106 to 5,000 skiers per day at buildout. It should be noted that, while this capacity far surpasses the ability of the base area lands to stage, the proposed ski facilities development will cater to the desired very low density powder skiing product.
Phasing – The gradual development of Whitewater is envisioned to occur over four or more phases. Each phase is self contained effectively being able to function as a finished resort product with both the mountain and the base area development complementing each other. Subsequent development will be driven by demand from the skier marketplace.
