New Staff Arriving!
Every department has been busy training new staff. On Tuesday we hosted a mass Staff Orientation. All of the new staff learn about general safety rules, health and safety, human resources and of course, guest services. Michael J spends time instructing new staff about amenities at the resort and guest services.
The Count Down is ON!!
Here we are in November, or as many guys now call it MOvember. November started out with a big snowfall! Over 30cm of snow on weekend and it's still snowing! Another big storm is hitting the resort today, 8cm in the last 12hrs!
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving
All of us here at Big White Ski Resort would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. The weather is changing, snow is falling and we are getting ready for a new season! The Cen Res staff got outside to enjoy a great Canadian pastime, a snowball fight! On Tuesday we had an autumn blizzard come through the resort and dump snow. Looks nice and snowy!
Like most things in life skiing & snowboarding have rules to play by. There are three codes that help us play safely in the mountain environment. For alpine skiing and snowboarding there is the Alpine Responsibility Code, Nordic skiing has the Cross Country Code and Big White Ski Resort supports the Burton Smart Style Program in the Terrain Park. All of the codes exist to make the mountain environment a safe and fun place for all to enjoy.
Snow & Cyclocross
Yes for the second week in a row we are talking about snow and biking! This time the snow is the natural kind, the gift from Mother Nature and instead of a road bike race it's a cyclocross. So now you are probably wondering what is a cyclocross?
Bike Racing and Snowmaking
Yep, you read that correctly. What do bike racing and snowmaking have in common, absolutely nothing, other than they are together in this blog.....

Odds and Ends from the Mountain
The middle of September is fast approaching! Things are continuing to move forward here on the mountain in preparation for our November opening. The Powder painting project is finished. (say that 10 times fast) This summer the TELUS Park and Plaza chairs got a fresh coat of paint as well. They now look all shiny and pretty! Great work to Brian, Kirk, Tu and crew!
