Big White Ski Resort is pleased to donate $15,000 to the Central Okanagan Food Bank (COFB), matching the over $15,000 donated by skiers, snowboarders and Central Okanagan locals. Throughout the month of March, and in conjunction with the TELUS Snowcross Challenge, Big White coordinated a matching donation campaign, which ended up raising $38,650 for the COFB.
I just want to reach out and say thank you to all our staff this season. It doesn’t matter whether you were de-icing lifts or pouring coffees, you helped Big White get through its most complicated and toughest season ever. The effort that everyone has made to keep the resort safe and running has been monumental. You did it and we got there. Thank you.
