Big White Voted Best Snow In North America!

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Big White is ecstatic to be recognized as having the best snow in North America by the readers of Condé Nast’s Traveler. Their 2008 annual poll, which rated the top 20 ski resorts in North America, identified Big White as having cleared the field with more than 95% of the 32,000 readers agreeing that Big White is the place to go for quality snow.

Condé Nast is one of the leading travel publications with 3.1 million readers, and was listed in the top 10 magazines in the US in 2008. Each year, Condé Nast conducts the poll to determine the top 20 ski resorts in North America with seasoned travelers from around the globe voting for their top resorts. Resorts were judged on terrain and conditions, lifts and lines, après-ski/activities, dining, and town ambiance.

“We’re blessed with over 7.5 meters of the best snow that Mother Nature provides. It’s a great honor to be recognized by the skiing public in such a respected international travel publication.” commented Big White Ski Resorts Senior Vice President Michael J. Ballingall. "I was playing in it on Saturday and tasted it for myself and agree it’s the best in North America” continued Michael J.  
But that’s not all they came home with. Big White also ranked highly when it came to lift infrastructure and lines. With 18 lifts (6 high speed) and a total uphill capacity of 28,000 skiers per hour, guests never experience a long wait in the lift line.

“With the caliber of international ski resorts, it’s a great achievement to be recognized as one of the leading ski resorts in the world”, said Jay Hayashi, General Manager. “Our team goes out of their way every day to ensure a quality resort experience”.

This is not the first time that Big White has been internationally recognized as they were recently listed 3rd in the “100 Top Ski Holidays for First Timers and Families” by Peter Hardy from the Daily Telegraph on the 14th of October, 2008. Peter is a leading British expert on the ski and travel industry and is a ski correspondent for the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail.
