We just returned from Big White and stayed at Sundance Resort. The porperty is new, but our rooms were very basic for what we paid. Although they offer amenities such as a heated pool, movies, and game rooms, there was little service provided by the resort. There is no food available on-site, and the tiny grocery store at the resort is 1/2 mile away and very limited. It would be easy for the resort to have coffee/tea/hot chocolate on site but none is offered. It was fairly clean, although there were a few paper scraps and kleenex in the corners. They only offer cleaning service once per five days, if you want extra cleaning it is $25 dollars. We had to ask for paper towels and shampoo for the room. If you want fresh towels and garbage service you have to ask each day. The towels and sheets were also very basic and scratchy. If you choose this resort, realize it is at least 1/4 to 1/2 mile to the village restaurants and it is a very cold walk late at night. I would rent a car and shop in Kelowna before you come up the hill to the resort which takes an hour. The resort is very convienent to the lifts, but again you have to walk uphill to the main square to buy your ticket since this service is not offered through the resort. Sundance is a condo development marketing itself as a resort, but basically you are on your own re: services.
Big White Ski resort is a huge property with great potential, but it is also not quite ready for prime-time. Much of the best terrain is serviced by very old chairs which were not open most of the time. The snow is great, but the hill was extremely foggy for 4 of the 6 days we were there, living up to the Big White-Out reputation. I'll go back when they have high speed chairs for Cliff chair, T-bar and Powder chair.
