Big White Reviews & Tips (5)

BIG WHITE is a fantastic, fun, family resort, many of the employees are from Australia, which gives the resort an extra fun feel...ALL SO FRIENDLY :) Lots of wide open runs, hardly ever a lift line and awesome snow. The accommodations are mostly all SKI IN AND OUT. Staying near Happy Valley is especially fun, close to the Happy Valley Lodge, restaurants and bar, next to the ice skating rink and the tubing hill and ice climbing! Also, fun to go snow mobiling and cross country skiing or take a ride in the horse drawn sleigh! Most of the mountain is groomed and gorgeous, intermediate and advanced intermediate. I highly recommend BIG WHITE!

This mountain is fun!! Its large with lots of options and would be a great option for the whole family. I find this hill to be more fun than challenging. Compared to hills like Revelestoke and Kicking horse this hill is mild. That being said, it doesn't take away from the fun. There are lots of lifts and glades and place to explore which is what we love about a mountain. We had sunny warm days that were just paradise and we also had powder days which were fantastic. The resort itself is a lot of fun to experience. A town in itself!! In the evening we went skating and tubing down at the you can go night skiiing. Lots to keep you busy.

Spent 3 days in Ski-in accomodation at Big white. Overall Excellent Accomodation, Reasonable prices, Fantastic Snow, not too crowded and perfacte temperature. Only drawback was the Fog on day 1 and sleet on day 2. Big white is aptly named. Day 3 was sunny however, and was one of the best ski days we have had in a long time.

What a great mountain. Like Apex, I wish I hit it on a powder day with all of the great steep tree skiing options available, but lots of fun for the whole family none the less. Gem Lake Express is the best hang-out on the mountain.
