Powder chair now open at Big White

Things always seem to move fast at Big White Ski Resort and it’s no different this season, as the ski hill has announced that its Powder Triple Chair opened this morning.

That abundance of snow has helped the resort to one of its best openings on record, as Big White celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

“I don’t know what we did, but Mother Nature is sure being nice to us,” says Michael J. Ballingall, Senior Vice President, Big White Ski Resort. 

“Not only is this our best opening in 50 years (measured by snowfall and attendance) but the weather has been outstanding as well. This early opening has had a tremendous economic spinoff for accommodation bookings for Christmas and New Year’s.”

The Powder Triple Chair runs 896m in length, with a top elevation of 2,150m and bottom elevation of 1,845m and is one of the oldest lifts at Big White. It first opened December 8, 1979.
