Romance hit the slopes at Big White

Friday was the day of love and Big White Ski Resort decided to offer multiple for the single and the attached to enjoy the cupid's favourite holiday.

Guests had the opportunity to have a private, romantic round trip ride in Lara’s gondola and indulge in the chocolate buffet offered in the Moose Lounge at Happy Valley Day Lodge. 

Valentines morning saw couples cuddled on a horse drawn sleigh, which carried them into woods to a private cabin for a champagne brunch.  

For those at the resort who were single and ready to mingle, Big White hosted speed dating on the Bullet Chair between 5 and 8 pm. 

Many singles gathered at The Bullet Express chair under an archway of red balloons, with the sultry sounds of the world’s greatest love songs in the background, all in hopes of making a love connection on the ride up. 

Some lucky couples even took the time to rent their very own private gondola for a roundtrip ride from the Village Centre at Big White to Happy Valley.  The Gondola was complete with heart shaped cushions, candlelight, cozy blankets to keep warm and included chocolate covered strawberries and champagne for you and your sweetheart.
