Twinkling fairy lights, snowy footpaths, endless Christmas trees and Christmas carols blasting over the speaker. Big White Ski Resort is one of the best places in the world to celebrate Christmas – the only difficult part is deciding which activity to take part in!
There are only seven days left until the Big White snow season kicks off - and everyone is incredibly excited about it. Skiing, snowboarding, fresh powder, apres ski, hot chocolate, warm fireplaces, tasty burgers, fairy lights twinkling through the Village... there's nothing better than a snow trip with family or friends. But how are you supposed to save cash while on the mountain?
Skiing is a pretty dynamic sport, the snow conditions change throughout the day, the slope varies from run to run and the weather is also a pretty big factor that you often need to adjust to. However, even with all these inconsistent elements there’s one consistent feeling that you can try to create that will help you deal with whatever the mountain throws at you. Simply put, it’s standing in the middle of your downhill ski.
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.
