Big White Reunion Week
Big White Ski Resort is approaching its 50th anniversary and they are going to celebrate approaching this milestone with a Reunion Party during the extended week of skiing. Staff from past and present, skiers, riders and guests from all seasons right back to 1963 are all invited to come out for the first reunion before Big White hits the golden age!
Celebrations will kick off on Monday, April 9th with a Welcome Wine Reception and Après Party at Happy Valley from 4pm to 6pm. Enjoy live music by Jon Bos and meet, mingle and catch up. Attendees will also receive a VIP Card which entitles recipients to discounts on the mountain.
Throughout the week the Breakfast Club tradition is back with $10 breakfasts at Happy Valley. Following this, everyone hits the slopes en masse with Big White guides for some fabulous skiing and riding.
BBQs and a beer garden will be set up in the Village Plaza for lunches on those beautiful bluebird spring days, so you can work on the goggle tan!
Some of the highlights of the week to look forward to include;
On April 10th, the gates will be set up on Speculation for everyone to have a go and try to regain their old form... if they ever had any!
Wednesday, April 11th, will be "Hot Dog Day" where you are encouraged to dress up in your retro gear for a time warp on the hill. Best dressed awards will be given out at Après that afternoon down at Happy Valley. Ron Butler has also made a special video to share with everyone. This will be screened after après at 7pm, along with Mark LaBelle's "Village on a Mountain" video.
On Friday, get ready to speed down the hill with the dual slalom course set up on Speculation and then the ever popular Suitcase Race is back in the tubing park!!
Saturday is the wrap up party of the week with a Kelowna Cup Guestimation Race. Take your first run, guess the time for your second run and the closest guess wins! Awards will follow in Happy Valley for après as Jon Bos plays, sponsored by Okanagan Spring Brewery. Watch the old classic photos of Big White and party with the rock n' roll DJ from 7:30pm.
