First Annual Ice Climbing Series

Posted on: December 06, 2013 | Activities

Ice climbing is typically considered an extreme and niche sport, left to those brave few willing to venture into the back-country in search of a frozen waterfall suitable for climbing. However, guests at Big White are able to swap skis for crampons within minutes since the opening of their man-made ice tower in 2010. In response to growing enthusiasm, Big White will launch an “Ice Climbing Series” this winter. Three winter clinics, led by Canadian ice climbing experts, will culminate in a thrilling Ice Climbing competition. From beginner to expert, Big White is the only ski resort in North America offering this unique experience for all to enjoy. They are also offering 10% off accommodation to course participants and a lift & lodging special from $81 per person, per day.

Posted on: March 27, 2013 | Ski tips with Josh Foster

The other day I was skiing with some people and we were working on parallel skiing. We were focusing at the start of the turn because that’s where something new needs to happen.
