This is my second time to Big White. And there was no disappointment as far as the skiing and most of the facilities in the resort. I found all the staff to be friendly and courteous. Overall, a great place to ski. BUT it beggars belief that a resort of this size lacks a proper functioning medical centre. Compared to... More

Unfortunately when we stayed in Big White there was no new snow, poor visibility 3 out of the 4 days we had on the slopes and extremely icy tree runs verging on seriously dangerous! That being said, the potential of this mountain with coverage is amazing- and that is what will keep us coming back next year! There are plenty... More

Dear Carmenannwood, Thanks for sharing your recent experience at Big White Ski Resort with the travel community. As an avid powder hound who loves skiing the knee deep snow through the trees here, I have found a new appreciation for corduroy! When mother nature gives us blue skies and bright sunshine we have to honour her by cruising the blues.... More

Visited for a week in Feb 2015 and just loved it. The weather was perfect, with 5 sunshiny days in a row. Snow conditions were hard packed but there was plenty good coverage except for the Gem Lakes chair where some of the runs were closed. Simple loved the village. Ski-in ski-out to hotels, restaurants, ski shops, rentals. Doesn't get... More

We stayed for 2 weeks at this great resort. For my husband and I it was our first time staying in here. This resort is owned by an aussie family and we found it that it is a nice place to stay and enjoy our skiing holiday. They have lots of restaurants with great food. The soups are unbelievable tasty.... More

On any score, there is doubtless another ski resort which is better than Big White. However, Big White tops the charts for me. It was a perfect combination of accommodation (Stonebridge), the company (the family all together), the mountain, the weather and the vibe. Everything was just perfect. Service staff were all extremely helpful & accommodating. We even received a... More

Return trip to Big White after seven years with friends. Great to see further developments and improvements at Big White. Happy to say we had snowfall during our stay, but the most amazing thing was the dedication and outstanding service by one particular staff member Jacquie Shearing. During a most interesting, friendly and informative snow shoe tour I manged to... More

Having visited Big White twice I can say, as a blue/ occasional black skier, that it is the best skiing I have experienced; not least because of the sheer space that you can find on some of the runs. To traverse an exciting mile long groomed blue run twice in succession without seeing another skier on it is magical. On... More

Big white has lots of fun groomers to hit if conditions aren't great. Seems like a pretty mellow mountain. Staff were super friendly and happy. The night skiing was super fun and it seemed like a lot was lit up for a night ride! Loved it! The E Gates didn't like my day pass too much and I found I... More

Lots of varied terrain for all levels of skiers, but the nickname of "Big Whiteout" is deserved - if you're not skiing trees, you often can't see a thing. Also found the grooming sloppy in places, holes taken out of runs, patches missed. Fantastic views amongst the snow ghosts at the top on a clear day. Hire and some on-snow... More
