Time to bundle up! We're in a cold snap up here at Big White Ski Resort, with temperatures dipping below -30C with wind chill in the alpine. Remember to dress in layers, pack extra masks – they get wet and freeze – and be aware of signs of frostbite. There are plenty of place to thaw those fingers and toes, but please be respectful of the COVID-19 safety protocols in our day lodges and buildings.
We’d like to take this opportunity to remind all visitors that masks are mandatory at Big White Ski Resort. You must wear a mask in all buildings, in lift lines, and when loading and unloading the lift. Failure to do so will result in removal of pass, which has happened on two occasions in the past 24 hours.
