Located on the west arm of Kootenay Lake and surrounded by the Selkirk Mountains, Nelson BC is a spectacularly beautiful  town offering a feast of cultural delights, and four seasons of outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking and water sports.  And of course, some of Canada’s best powder skiing and snowboarding at nearby Whitewater Ski Resort.  With an impressive collection of heritage buildings and a lively downtown packed with great restaurants, cafes, live music venues and eclectic shops, Nelson is the jewel of the Kootenays, and a town not to miss!
