I have skied at many places but loved the friendly, family feel about this resort. Everything is close together and the runs were wide and long. Good choice of restaurants with everything within walking distance if you stay in the village.

Our annual ski group has been going to Whistler for the past few years. Last year we had four days of rain and most of the hills had green grass and rocks showing in lower areas. So we decided to try Big White this year and were not disappointed. Very good base of snow everywhere and skiing was excellent the... More

When I approached customer service with my issue, they were curtious and prompt in dealing with the problem. During BC family weekend to boot, when it was also very... More

First time snowboarding in Canada for me and Big White didn't disappoint, most nights it snowed so we would wake up to 10 to one day 30 cm of fresh snow! We stayed for 2 weeks, the dog sledding is a must do also..

We had 8 days of skiing in late January. We were lucky enough to get one day of 38cm of powder snow over night! We also had 2 partly cloudy days, 1 sunny day and 2 foggy days. So overall we had a mix of weather but great snow and blue groomers. Unfortunately Gem Lake Chair was closed for maintenance... More

The snow has been great and there are plenty of good... More

Big White is a hill that typically gets a lot of good snow. The terrain is not extreme so it lends well to beginner and intermediate skiers; however, we did not have access to the Gem Lake runs or lift at this time...which may have made me think different. The runs are not long so it's easy to get into... More
