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

What a fantastic ski resort!! This resort is advertised as a family resort but it really is good for all. There are lovely restaurants, a beautiful little village with gorgeous sparkling lights, lots of activities for all like horse sleigh rides, dog sled rides, outdoor ice skating rink, snow shoeing, snow mobiling, fireworks and the list goes on and on.......

I went here for the first time this year during spring. Took a friend snowboarding for the first time, and there was plenty of terrain to keep him entertained, while still keeping me happy. I think the resort has a great mix of runs, and has a decent amount of things to do other than boarding/skiing. Only drawback was it... More
