We have had the amazing opportunity of staying at Big White 6 years in a row. Amazing snow. Amazing runs and vibrant village. Occasionally it gets super foggy. Sometimes all the way up to the snow ghosts at the top but the fog can clear as quickly as it arrives. Lots of high speed lifts, lessons, rentals, snowshoeing, ice skating.... More

I have been skiing Big White since 1989 and watched it grow up into a world class resort. While it has long been known for it's dry champagne powder, it's ridiculous abundance of fresh snow (and the occasional Big White-Out days where you can't see more than one chair in front of you), this summer I learned to love Big...

Very friendly and helpful staff team. Help loading and unloading at the Bullet Chair. Very easy for any age group. Yes, you can go up to the top look at the beautiful scenery and then take chair back down. Or you can hike up and/or down on very well marked trails. Safe and impressive.

Other than one ski lift being out of service for our 5 day stay we had a great trip. Snow was pristine and much better than Whistler. This resort is smaller than Whistler but the conditions make up for it.

We've been to Big White twice this summer. The first time hiking with the Central Okanagan Naturalists Club - a full hike on Big White's great new summer trails.

We came to visit friends who are permanent residents at big white, nice to have a chair lift running during the summer to help you appreciate the beautiful views and to assist with hiking for those who can't do the full climb.

Wonderful ski vacation. Village walkable and can get nearly everywhere skiing or walking. Wonderful food and great family activities and events. Ski school was great (although they need to figure out a better way for check-in and check-out of kids as it's a bit crazy and can have long waits during peak seasons) Had great evenings out with fabulous meals...

Outstanding year for snow. Lots of variety of terrain. Loads of quality glade trails. Loved the "Cliff" runs, STEEP. Went at Ontario March break, not too busy. Never ugly line ups. Good ski in/out.
