Our family of four spent a week skiing Big White. OMG amazing. The place is like a fairytale. Awesom snow, fantastic service, the friendliest (and most patient) ski instructors, fabulous accommodation options (we stayed at Trappers which was perfect, ski in ski out, complete with own hot tub) and great restaurants and food outlets. I couldn't recommend this place more.... More

Big White is a top tier BC resort, garnering tons of awards and a very loyal clientele. For good reason- the resort is more than family friendly, has really good, extensive terrain, an excellent village layout, once you get the hang of it, and a full range of accommodations. The groomers work overtime to keep the runs in shape, and... More

Dear MisterMaui, Thank you for your thoughts and feedback about your recent stay at Big White Ski Resort. When the weather reduces visibility on the mountain it is a good time to take a free tour with one of our Snowhosts. They can take you down runs with visible points of reference to make the best of challenging conditions. We... More

Fantastic snow holiday. Had a record dumping of powder snow while we were at BW. I've travelled on snow holidays through Europe, Australia and Japan but this was the best place for quality snow. Accommodation was ski in ski out which was awesome. BW is all about family activities which really made it for us. The ski runs had the... More

Our family went here for a day to enjoy all the new snow. We mostly snow skied the green and blue runs. It was not too crowed and lift lines were fast and easy. Lots of room for all. We had to rent skies at the Villages Ski Rentals there - it was very easy and fast too. The Ski... More

We stayed at Big White for 6 nights 5 days of riding. The hill itself is incredible, tons of amazing riding. No gondola that takes you from Big white central to the top of the mountain, so you'll be taking a couple of chair lifts and or a T bar ride to get to the very top. Didn't bother us... More

We were at Big White for the first time at New Years and its an awesome ski hill for every level of skier. The lifts are reasonable height off the ground and its easy for Intermediate / beginners to make it to the peak at 7600 feet. The Sunrype bowl has some awesome more technical runs between trees. They had... More

A village atmosphere which has to be tried to be believed. Nothing is too much trouble. great hot chocolates! 90 percent of their staff are Aussies. So it's like a home away from home. Simply Brilliant!
