The old Burlington Railway line from Nelson to Salmo ran through Ymir across the street from the hotel.The track has been removed and it is now a beautiful natural trail for hiking,mountain biking, cross-country skiing and back-country access. An abundance of wildlife and spectacular scenery can be observed while walking this trail along the Salmo River.The natural beauty will take your breath away!

 Cradled in BC’s legendary Selkirk Mountains, renowned for epic winters,Whitewater’s dependable
snowfall totals over 10 meters a season. That’s over 40 feet!There just aren’t many resorts that see snowfalls as big, as often. Factor in the 5400ft/1640m base elevation and you get the most reliable ski resort in the West.
 The Salmo Ski Hill, located 12 kilometres to the South, is a bit gentler and offers downhill night skiing.

will make your heart race. With breathtaking views and miles of untracked powder, you’ll have a great experience you’ll never forget!
