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.

Stayed here in February: Good: - skiing Bad: - Rude, unhelpful staff. They really don't care if you have a pleasant stay. They are only concerned with getting your money. - Extremely small village with few things to do. Everything closes very early as well. Will not be back.

This snow sport resort is amazing. I've been to the French Alps - too busy, too expensive (blatant rip off), over commercialised and, old hat IMHO. Whistler? Yup, been there and it's good. But for serious skiing, snowboarding, skidoos in a vast landscape with no large crowds, no (too) rowdy après ski - it's civilised! - Big White is really... More

Everything about this place is amazing. The snow, the runs, the fact that there's never any lineup... my favourite hill by far.
