It might be snowing but the Big White Staff aren’t afraid to take on the anti-bullying campaign!  Big White’s front line staff brave the cold with Boomer the kangaroo, the Loose Moose and two young guests at the resort, Jenna & Mia Stacey.  The Moose and Boomer will be touring the Kids Centre, the Happy Valley Day Lodge and the Big White Community School to raise awareness and collect donations.  All donations will be sent to the “Bullying Stops Here” Campaign at the boys & girls club in the Central Okanagan.

Daily Mirror - No Snow ProblemsRead this Daily Mirror article discussing "While some resorts struggle, Big White has never had a problem with snow".

" the resort itself, it’s a name that does not mislead. This extra­ordinary phenomenon is the result of the unique snow conditions on the higher slopes of this family-friendly resort in western Canada where nature provides as much fun as any man-made attraction ever could. Take the Snow Ghost Express chairlift (what else?), ski between the trees and set your mind free about the images you can see formed by the dry and light snow sticking layer upon layer to the trees through the winter."
