Home away from home! My parents starting taking me and three sisters to Big White when I was 12, I grew up there and it was amazing.

When the sun is out it is a great mountain. The accommodation is good and overall it is good value for money. However, it is prone to heavy fog (or as they will call it low level cloud) which makes skiing tough. Most of the staff in the resort are students having a gap year and I thought that they... More

Great family location, great mountain options for non skiers and skiers alike & a fantastic array of on snow accommodation. Only negative if there is... More

We stayed for 4 days and had sunshine everyday. The snow was great and the grooming kept it perfect for spring skiing. Will definitely go back.

Loved the friendliness of this place and the small village life. Customer service was amazing and if you want new ski boots, see Lindsay in the Boot Shop. There's nothing he doesn't know about boots.

Great ski resort with lots of variety of runs for all. It can get quite cloudy and snowy for the visibility is challenging at times. Accommodations are all close to the lifts and central part of the village. lots of good restaurants to choose form, all within walking distance.

We have come many times to Big White and just wanted to say how fantastic the 'free' Snow Host programme is. They are always so friendly and very knowledgeable about Big White and the surrounding area. It is also a brilliant way for skiers of a similar standard to meet each other and ski in company. Well done Big White!

Stayed here mid-March (spring break) with two other families. The larger properties are usually on the outskirts of the village and in our case it was ski-in but ski out involved a five minute walk to a trail that was ski-able but had some flat sections. The terrain is great for intermediate skiers. There's also a variety of treed runs... More

Stayed at the resort the first wkd in April. Blue Sky days and spring skiing in shorts and T-shirts. Impossible to ski the entire mountain in one day it's so big! Well worth the trip.
