It's the Snow" is our motto at award-winning Big White Ski Resort! Each year, seven meters (24.5 feet) of Mother Nature’s finest, driest champagne powder blankets over a hundred immaculately groomed cruising runs and spacious alpine bowls. You will instantly feel the difference that natural snow makes as you carve turns on perfectly buffed trails, float through the powder bowls, and slalom through the "snow ghosts" – our signature snow clad glades. In TELUS Park, skiers and snowboarders can ride the rails, or jump and spin off a whole variety of natural and man-made features. Big White's romantic village boasts Canada’s most modern and luxurious ski-in ski-out resort properties, with room for over 17,000 guests. Hotels, luxury apartments, vacation homes and even themed log cabins, (most with private outdoor hot tubs) dot the snowy slopes. The Village Centre Mall is the hub for all Big White activity and fun. During the day, it houses the ski school, rental shop, main ticket office, Activities Desk, ski shops, and Beano's café. Happy Valley – a short gondola ride from the Village Centre – is where you'll find Big White's famous après‐ski programs – many of which are free! Don't miss the Video Nights, Bingo Night, Big White's Got Talent, Nintendo Wii night, ice skating and pond shinny (ice hockey) on Canada's largest high‐altitude skating rink, dogsled tours, the Mega Snow Coaster tubing park, and guided snowmobile tours – we even have 'Mini‐Z's' for younger riders. With a newly expanded runway and an international arrivals lounge being constructed at Kelowna International Airport, flying to Big White will be even easier than before. We can have you out of the airport and up to Big White in an hour's time.

Visitor Reviews of Big White

Bill Smith from Canada writes:

Rather disappointed with Big White resort.
Food: only 1 or 2 decent options.
Kids activities other than skiing start at 3pm
Resort built on the side of a mountain, accessibility poor. Most times you are walking uphill.
Shopping non-existent.
Big White is aptly named as you are virtually in white-out conditions up top.
Pretty difficult to navigate terrain you can't see.
Local skiers claim that this is a regular symptom of skiing here.
Not as kid-friendly as advertised.
