Must admit I'm a bit biased as we own a condo at Silver Star Mountain and have our season's pass there. We do go occasionally to Big White when we have guests that would like to experience another ski resort. It has everything that you need as a ski resort - except that is is often foggy and known affectionately... More

The mountain has a lot of terrain and caters to families, lots of accommodation not a lot of restaurant options and when you get here...you are here. Kelowna is a 45 minute drive away. Service was meh! lots of TFW, some were great some didn't really care. We went in March, no lift lines and plenty of snow

We drove straight from Vancouver AP to Big White after the 15hr flight. Big White had been recommended as a good resort for families, and it is.

This was an amazing resort for the ski runs, the snow, the design and accommodation. We had a great time. The beautifully groomed runs and the layout impressed us. We really liked fast cruising. There were a lot of great runs for this. They have put gentle rounded bumps on some runs. It was very exciting to take them at... More
