Introducing Bike Big White’s Beginner Skills Park! Thanks to a $200,000 grant provided by the province and the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA), Bike Big White is adding a few new features and upgrades to the park this summer, including a new progression area, located at the south end of the Happy Valley Adventure Park. The skills park will offer a safe and stress-free environment for entry level mountain bikers to test the waters and gain confidence before entering the main park.
Winter might be over... but up on the mountain, there's no slowing down. This summer, we have fun for the whole family – from hiking in the alpine to ripping through trails on your mountain bike, trying your hand at disc golf or enjoying a cold pint on The Woods outdoor patio.
Big White Ski Resort wants to thank all of our Kelowna-area and on-mountain friends and team members for joining us this past Saturday, June 12, for our annual Community Clean-Up. Over 165 people flowed through the resort to help tidy up the litter left behind after the snow melted.
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.
Time to put the skis and boards back in storage and bring out the bikes and paddleboards! There are many reasons why we love calling the Central Okanagan home, and the diversity of outdoor activities is just one of them – the beautiful backdrops, no matter the time of year, is another! Those jaw-dropping views have made their way into movie productions, commercials, and more – and last year, Bike Big White made its debut in a reality show competition for aspiring mountain bike professionals! Pinkbike Academy showcased our local mountain on the world stage through the streaming network Amazon Prime, and this year, it's coming back for more action!
Interior Health is advising anyone who attended a congregate event at Big White Ski Resort on March 29 that they have put themselves at risk of contracting COVID-19 and should monitor themselves closely for symptoms of COVID-19.
Big White Ski Resort Ltd has made the difficult decision to close for the season on Monday, April 5 at 4pm, six days earlier than the scheduled date of April 11, to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and the recent surge in P.1 variant cases in British Columbia.
