It's the Snow
On the west side of the Rocky Mountains, in the heart of Canada’s British Columbia, lies Big White blessed with an annual snowfall of over 7.5m. Here in the Okanagan region snowmaking is unnecessary, it’s all natural, with the local climate providing the dry, light champagne powder that we all love to wallow in. And it’s not just the snow conditions that are alluring – so is the temperature, with a daytime average of -5˚C. If you’re looking for ski-in/ski-out convenience, it doesn’t get much better than here. Big White has a wide range of slope-side accommodation with every budget in mind.
With its light Okanagan powder, Big White is the place to go for serious snow. And you’ll be sure to make the most of it with one of Canada’s largest and most modern lift systems serving wide, open terrain suitable for all. Lines are virtually unheard of here – even on the busiest days.
Live out your dream day by floating through bowls of feather-light powder, carve epic tracks on the perfectly groomed pistes and dodge your way between the snow ghosts – as Big White’s snow-clad trees are known. Stay in the heart of it, Big White is British Columbia’s second largest resort with on-mountain accommodation to cater for over 17,000 guests. And conveniently, there is a great choice of bars, restaurants and shops just a few steps from all accommodation – the perfect way to refuel and relax after a hard day on the mountain.
After hours when you’ve finished blazing down the slopes, adventurous types can try snowmobiling, dog sledding or night skiing under the stars. And if you’ve had enough activity for one day, why not try a more relaxing option. Kick back in the spa, sample a wide selection of wines from local vineyards or just submerge yourself in your own private hot tub overlooking the Monashee mountain range.
