As the sun rises over the mountain, and in light of yesterday’s announcement from the Provincial Health Officer, it’s locals only for another month at Big White Ski Resort. Big White Central Reservations Ltd will be calling and cancelling all bookings from non-local customers until midnight February 5.
When Big White Ski Resort was formed by two ski-loving friends in 1963, it began with big dreams – and those dreams are nowhere near being fulfilled. For decades, Cliff Serwa and Doug Mervyn, the Schumann family, and now the Plimmer family, have designed and developed and dreamed looking decades ahead.
Working from home? Why not work at your home away from home – and by work, we mean strap on a pair of planks and hit the slopes. Still in the office? Well, we’re not saying we promote “calling in sick,” but we aren’t not promoting it… (please, do not come up to the mountain if you are actually sick!). Retired? What’s your excuse?! Skiing and snowboarding midweek has many perks, and we’ve compiled a few to get you pumped about that Monday to Friday, 8:45am to 3:30pm ski lifestyle.
We're all in this together has never been more true, and we want to thank you. Thank you for being patient. Thank you for wearing a mask; for keeping your distance; for staying home if you feel sick; for respecting our team members, the community and all our guests that have visited the mountain so far this year. Without you, without your commitment to keeping the resort safe, we would be unable to stay open this season.
Have a few bottles lying around after a fun night with family and friends? Well, thanks to a brand new Return-It Express & GO recycling facility at Big White, you no longer have to trek all the way down to Kelowna to recycle all that plastic, glass and aluminum.
While it’s been a difficult, but necessary, decision for us to close our Skating Rink this year, we’re happy to announce a new temporary Parking Lot in Happy Valley for our Club 65 members and those Travelling with Tots!
Big White Ski Resort and Big White Central Reservations is committed to making our guests feel safe and comfortable from the moment they arrive at the resort, to when they lay their heads down at night to catch some Z’s after a long day on the slopes – and for those flying in from out of town, from the moment they are picked up by our airport shuttle!
