Look to the Future With Us – Big White Ski Resort’s Draft Master Plan for Expansion

Posted On: January 05, 2021 |
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. 

Big White Ski Resort Ltd has submitted a draft Master Plan for expansion to the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (FLNRORD), for review and approval, consistent with the AllSeasons Resort Policy. The draft Master Plan details the proposed expansion and phased development concepts for continued all-seasons resort purposes. We are inviting guests, residents and anyone interested to weigh in and provide feedback through comments or at an Online Information Session on January 26, 2021. 

We have spent countless hours reviewing and revising, as well as consulting with the Westbank First Nation, experts and government officials, to figure out how our dreams align and the best way forward to make this resort a world-class destination while respecting the beauty of Mother Nature.
