If you’re looking for ski holidays with lots of snow, ski in/ ski out accommodation, a whole heap of terrain and a great family resort, then how about Big White in British Columbia? Here’s why we love skiing in Big White…
It’s The Snow!
Big White’s motto “It’s the Snow” exists for a reason! Over 750 cm of light, dry, fluffy Okanagan Champagne powder falls annually in Big White – you can have fresh tracks for days as the slopes are so quiet!
Ski-In Ski-Out Convenience
No matter if you’re looking for a luxury condo or a budget studio, you can spoil yourself with the massive convenience of ski in/ ski out accommodation in Big White – there is so much choice for all budgets and tastes.
Big, Wide Open Terrain
As well as 118 runs and 5 alpine bowls where you can play in deep deep powder, Big White is also home to Canada’s largest resort tubing park, Canada’s highest skating rink, endless snowmobile trails, and much more. There is so much to do!
Express Lifts, NO QUEUES!
If you hate waiting around to get your turns, then Big White will be for you. With 16 lifts and an uphill lift capacity of 28,000 skiers per hour, you’ll spend your time on the slopes rather than in long queues. You’ll be wishing there was more time to rest your legs on the lift!
Perfect Winter Weather
Big White has a great climate for families. Daytime temperatures average around -5 ºC during the winter, which means that the little ones won’t get too cold. If you’re worried about altitude, Big White’s moderate base elevation won’t take your breath away, but the views of the surrounding Okanagan mountains certainly will!
Family Friendly Entertainment
Whether you are on or off the slopes, Big White has a whole host of family friendly activities available for kids of all ages. The Big White Kids Centre has a superb reputation – you’ll be dragging them home at the end each day after ski school. Once they’ve put away their skis, they’ll be chomping at the bit to go skating, play hockey, give tubing a go or gather around the bonfire to watch the fireworks. There is so much to do!
Ease Of Access
Big White is accessed from Kelowna Airport, which is a short internal flight from Vancouver and the transfer is only 45 mins away, which means you’ll be there in no time!
