Big White

In the heart of Canada’s British Columbia, lies Big White, blessed with light Okanagan powder with an average annual snowfall of 7.5 metres.  Lines are virtually unheard of here, even on the busiest days.  Live out your dream day by floating through bowls of feather-light powder, carve epic tracks on the perfectly groomed pistes and dodge your way between the snow ghosts.  There really is something for everyone.  Big White has a wide range of ski-in/ski-out and slope-side accommodation with every budget in mind.  There is a great choice of bars and restaurants just a few steps from all accommodation, the perfect way to refuel and relax after a hard day on the mountain.  New in 2015 will see the Black Forest Day Lodge, with a 150 seat cafeteria with expansive views of the Monashees Mountains.  Continue the action with plenty of family activities based around the Happy Valley Adventure centre.  Come and see what keeps people coming back year after year.
