Big White Ski Resort
December 1st, 2011
Big White Ski Resort opened 2 days early today for the 2011/2012 season! The lifts spun for the first time for eager skiers and riders this morning! The excitement was apparent with everyone laughing, smiling and shouting in the big lift queue at the Ridge Rocket at 8am this morning.
“Opening day had been scheduled for December 3rd, but with all the snowfall we've had, we were able to open 2 days early,” commented Jay Hayashi, General Manager at Big White Ski Resort. “It was a beautiful day on the hill, and everyone was sporting huge smiles in celebration of Big White's opening.” Mr. Hayashi added.
The Ridge Rocket Chair, The Plaza Chair, Lara's Gondola, and the magic carpet were opened today. Since not all of the runs are open, Big White is selling Lift tickets at 50% off, ski and snowboard rentals are 25% off and their Half Day Discover Program is 50% off. If you are new to skiing or riding, the Discover Program is the best way to get you started at Big White!
