Big White - Featured in Adventure Seekers

I am your typical Ontario transplant here in BC. I came, I saw, I took too many pictures and I moved back as quickly as I could. My first powder experience was at Big White at least a decade ago. A group of us came out to compete in the halfpipe nationals and it was dumping. We had never seen snow like this before. Correction, we had never seen snow like this on a ski hill before. I don’t remember how I placed, what my run was but I do remember that first feeling of experiencing deep snow. We still talk about it to this day and I would say the majority of us now call BC home.
