Whitewater Ski Resort’s Old School Goes New School

Via Switzerland, Australia and Colorado’s ‘Harvard of Ski Schools’, Whitewater’s new Snow School Director sets resort’s ski and snowboard program in class of its own

Nelson, BC - Whitewater Ski Resort’s highly anticipated Glory Triple Chair isn’t the mountain’s only new development heading into the 2010/2011 season.

The resort is going new school, as the kids say, quite literally.

With ski instructing experience gleaned from some of the world’s greatest slopes, in Switzerland, Colorado and all over beautiful B.C., Brent Malysh

has been named Whitewater’s new Snow School Director. And the 28-year-old, CSIA Level 3, Level 4 Candidate has big plans for those aiming to be more pro in the snow — from first timers to fledgling freeriders, tiny tots to senior hot shots.

“As Whitewater grows now, there’s a clear need for our Snow School to grow along with it,” says Malysh. “We’re no longer just a small locals-only focused ski and snowboard program.”

Malysh has completely revamped Whitewater’s children’s ski and snowboard instruction programs, made a more enjoyable and easier-to-understand curriculum for kids, private one-on-one and group lessons, added value to locals’ season-long programs like the Powder Room and the Board Room, as well as launched — and we do mean launched! — a great new Freeride Program including two well-known local yokels famous for their big mountain prowess.

In fact, this winter in addition to Whitewater’s Racing team, there’ll be a new Whitewater Freeride Team, co-coached by veteran local shredders Peter Velisek and Dano Slater, Big Mountain competitors, judges and ski athletes who’ve ripped it up at all over the world.

Also new this year, Whitewater Ski Resort is introducing new Powderhound Experience and Discover Cat and Heli programs.
