Kelowna B.C. - Peter Plimmer, President of Big White Ski Resort LTD. Announced moments ago one of the earliest openings in the mountain’s 50 year history. “After visiting the resort this morning and touring the area with Jeremy Hopkinson, 39 year veteran of mountain operations, we concluded that with the storms scheduled to hit the mountain, Big White Ski Resort will be ready to go next Saturday.”
“With a 65cm base and more snow predicted to fall over The Remembrance Day Long Weekend, we’re all pretty excited up here on the mountain!” commented, Michael J Ballingall Senior Vice President. “When Mr. Plimmer announced to the staff that we were opening next Saturday it looked like he broke open a bee hive, there were people running in every direction”, continued Ballingall. “Opening day lift tickets, rental equipment and lessons will all be at half price.”
Accommodation at Big White is on sale and Central Reservations is offering a “ski free” package. Call 250-765-8888 or [email protected]
