Kelowna, B.C., May 20, 2015Big White Ski Resort, Canada’s most family friendly ski resort, has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. Now in its fifth year, the award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given to establishments that consistently achieve great reviews on TripAdvisor.

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor looks at destinations that are consistently and frequently reviewed highly. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

“We’re delighted to be recognized by TripAdvisor, but most importantly we’re thrilled with what our guests have written about their experience,” said Michael Ballingall, Senior Vice President of Big White Ski Resort. “As a family-owned, purposely built ski resort we’ve always been fully committed to providing a world-class winter experience in the heart of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Now we just wait for Mother Nature, champagne powder and the weather so we can do it all over again!”

"TripAdvisor is pleased to honour exceptional hospitality businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travellers on the site,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. “By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive increasing hospitality standards around the world, it also gives both large and small businesses the ability to shine and stand out from the competition.”
