We enjoyed our time at Big White. Everything is easily accessible and a short Walk from our chalet. Great teams run the ski school, with excellent instructors for all abilities. There's enough options for food for a week or two. Snow was patchy which was apparently very unusual... but still way better than Aussie snow! 😜 Definitely recommend this place.... More

Great resort for families and friends. The mountain has plenty to choose from regarding your level of skiing. Runs are wide, and well groomed. Plenty of black diamonds for the skier who demands more. The Village has plenty of restaurants and shops, along with rentals for skiers of all budgets. Staff are friendly and helpful. I found prices fair, with... More

I've been coming to Big White most of my life. It truly is a great mountain. It features the second the most skiable terrain in BC, and I believe in Canada (next to Whistler). One of the great things about Big White is that the terrain is pretty safe. You won't be accidentally be falling off cliffs or anything like... More

The resort is small, but it is all spread out on a slope. There is a bus running every half hour, but many places may be in between the few stops. Believe me, it can get real cold (minus 20+C) here to make a 0.2km walk miserable. The lifts are not shielded from the elements so it can be very... More
