Big White Ski Resort’s Executive Chef Rob Walker has been named one of six Okanagan-area chefs to compete in next fall’s “Canada’s Great Kitchen Party” culinary competition – for the second time in three years. Formerly called the Gold Medal Plates, Chef Walker competed in the 2016 semi-finals in Victoria, where he was up against nine other BC-based chefs to secure a spot in the finals.
It’s the time of year when nothing tastes better than a cold, frothy pint on a sun-soaked patio. The craft beer movement has taken hold of North America, and Big White Ski Resort is no exception. Use this guide to help you navigate Big White’s craft beer scene – from our very own on-mountain brewery to beer-centric festivals to slope-side patios.
As if the Okanagan Champagne Powder, the snow ghosts and the completely ski-in-ski-out Village weren’t enough to make Big White Ski Resort stand out, we are also the first ski resort in North America to have our very own chocolates – dreamt up, designed and distributed by Executive Chef Rob Walker.
It’s one thing to impress mature taste buds with Big White Ski Resort’s growing foodie culture, but it takes a certain something to get both the bigs and the littles drooling at one table. We think we’ve got it covered - but you’ll have to let the kiddies decide for themselves!
A true Canadian winter experience doesn't have to involve shredding down the slopes on skis or a snowboard - not at all! In fact, some of the most memorable Canadian adventures and culinary destinations can be experienced by anyone, regardless of your experience on the snow.
When you’re working hard, manoeuvring the slopes through all that champagne powder, sometimes you need a little extra fuel to make it to last chair. We checked with science, and it turns out calories don’t count on a powder day – so enjoy one (or all) of these on-mountain favourites during your next trip!
Grab your friends and face paint because Big White is the place to be on game day this Sunday! These on-mountain restaurants & bars are serving up an all-star line-up of food and drink specials to celebrate the big game.
