This is a great resort for the variety of skiing & boarding options, a good choice of accommodation and lots of stuff to do after skiing. There is a village atmosphere with shops, restaurants, bars and some fun activities. There is snow shoeing, tubing, ice skating, snowmobile rides and ice climbing to do. It looks like a great place for... More

What a fantastic ski resort. Stayed at Silver Tip Chalets in Snowpines area and the ski in/out could not be beaten. It was 15 metres from front door to run. A short 10 min stroll on a flat path (that is well lit at night) takes you to the village shops and restaurants. Couldn't recommend this resort highly enough.

First of all understand it's extremely quiet at Big White in the summer. There is no bustling village life, no stores or food shops, no night life and only one open restaurant in the summer (with reduced hours). There is a new hiking trail open this summer up to Rhonda Lake. There is fresh clean pine scented air, a stunning... More

We've skied Big White a few times and love the snow, sun, and great customer service. It's definitely the friendliest mountain! We had great snow at Christmas and again at Spring Break. Can't wait to go back!

Only a winter resort. Silver Star has more in the summer and also offers better biking trails. Really nothing at Big White in the summer other than a restaurant or two

Great skiing, great atmosphere, great people.....Fun place to go for that ski vacation. Beautiful country. Snowshoe Sams and The Globe are great places to eat and have a few drinks at the end of the day.
