This resort was perfect for our group - good mix of difficulty on all sections of the resort so our mixed skill group could stay together and meet up at the lifts every run instead of having to split up. The grocery service via the IGA in Kelowna was great- emailed our list ahead of time and just had to... More

I spent 3 months here from Jan - March 2015. The season was the worst they had in 10 years so I heard. Could have fooled me! The quantity was a lot compared to Europe and the quality was the best I have ever seen, very dry snow and soft snow. Lift queues are zero during the week but tend... More

I am a not so great skier, but this ski resort was awesome for a novice. A lot of runs that are very accommodating to the beginner or novice skier. staff were most helpful with rentals. Amazing views and great trails! And the beverages after were pretty good too! Over all experience was just awesome!

One of my all time favourite ski hills. Incredible snow fall each year, tons of trails and excellent terrain. Very scenic with great amenities.

We've stayed and skiing in Big White about seven times over the past ten years or so.

Usually when you think ski resort you think winter, but we spent a morning here when staying in Kelowana. It's not to far from town and we saw deer on the way up, had breakfast at The Globe, then spent a few hours hiking up the mountain. The hike was really scenic and enjoyeable, passing a lake, wildflowers and spetacular... More

The only place I have ever skied where I was all alone on a mile long run. Great conditions and a lovely atmosphere unless you are there on Australia Day when all the Aussies there (and there are lots of them) go ape and trash the reputation of their country. Good hotels, good eating and wonderful snow.

I have been skiing at Big white for 3 years now and what I have been most impressed about is the consistency of the snow. Even in the warm 2014-2015 season, the snow was excellent. Quick tip, buy your ticket ahead of time at Costco for a discount or get a biggie card. As everyone mentions, this is a great... More

Because this is the first year that Big White is open for the summer, there isn't a ton of activities to do...and it doesn't matter! Do yourself a favour and take a ride on the Bullet Chair. The chair runs slower than it does in the winter so you can really relax and take in the scenery that you don't... More

This is a stunning location even in summer. The scenery from the village is superb and from the top of the chairlift...even better. Plenty of places to shop, eat and drink. Great facilities on offer. Despite a large forest fire last Friday, the Craft Beer Fair had the resort buzzing. With the ongoing development for hiking and biking trails, the... More
