Big White celebrates summer

Big White have a big celebration planned for the final long weekend of the summer.

The ski hill will open the Bullet Chair Lift this Saturday through Monday for what it calls the Bike, Bike and Beverage Festival.

As part of the festival, residents and tourists alike are invited to ride the Bullet Chair to an elevation of 2,151m above sea level and walk or ride the chair back down.

Access to the chair is by cash or food donation for the Kelowna Community Food Bank.

The festival itself will include biking and hiking races, mountain bike demos, an outdoor carnival, live music and beverage tastings.

"We are excited to once again be offering rides to the alpine on the Bullet Express lift over the September long weekend," says Sr VP, Michael J Ballingall.

"Last time we did this was 10 years ago and over 1,000 people showed up."
