Big White Ski Resort - Canada's favourite family ski resort, located in the heart of beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
At Big White Ski Resort, we're all about the snow. On average, 24 feet of Mother Nature's finest, dry, champagne powder falls annually, creating our world-famous snow ghosts and blanketing our long cruising slopes. With over 118 ski runs, five powder bowls and plenty of sunshine, you'll soon realize why we've been consistently voted one of the top ski resorts in the world.
The resort is designed for families and easily accessible to visitors from all over the world, located only 56KM from Kelowna International Airport (YLW). The resort features day skiing and night skiing, a world-renowned Ski & Board School, and one of North America's top 10 terrain parks, as voted in USA Today's 10best Awards.
With over 17,000 on-mountain beds there are accommodation options to suit every budget and taste. Hotels, luxury apartments, and modern mountain vacation homes, most with private outdoor hot tubs, dot the landscape. Our on-mountain Central Reservations Team is dedicated to planning your winter holiday with superior service and exceptional value. You can reach them toll free at 1-800-663-2772 or email [email protected] to request a quote.
Off the slopes, the resort offers numerous adventure activities for non-skiers including snowmobiling, dog sled tours, horse drawn dining tours, ice-climbing, tubing and snowshoe tours, to name a few. Big White is also home to 14km of Nordic cross country ski trails and Canada's highest outdoor skating rink- resting at 1755M above sea level. Guests can book these adventure activities through our concierge team by contacting them at 250-491-6111 or [email protected].
To fuel up before or after a day on the slopes, Big White has plenty of places to eat for breakfast, lunch, après and dinner. With over 18 on-mountain restaurants, cafes, delis, pubs and nightclubs, there is no shortage of places for guests to relax or replenish their energy levels.
The fun never ends after the lifts stop spinning! From Carnival Night to Trivia to Ultimate Family Gameshow Night- Big White's events team hosts free, family-friendly events every day. A full events calendar is available online - guests are encouraged to come out and join the fun.
This season, Big White Ski Resort is set to be the official host mountain for the 2017 World Para Snowboard Championships, which will run February 1-8 2017, in conjuction with co-hosts Canada Snowboard and the Canadian Paralympic Committee. Big White also looks forward to hosting the Canadian Culinary Championships (January 31), Winemakers Cup (February 24-25), Big Whites Wine Festival (March 3-4), the Neil Edgeworth Memorial Banked Slalom (Marc 24-25) and the Annual Kelowna Cup (April 1) - which last year helped raise over $25 000 for Kelowna Children's Hospital's Giving Giggles campaign.
In Summer 2017, Big White will open a brand new world-class, lift-serviced mountain bike trail network. The goal of @BikeBigWhite is to create a unique riding destination in the Okanagan that speaks to the soul of mountain biking, with trails and services that are built, staffed, and provided by riders for other riders. The authentic, grassroots biking experience will fulfill the goals of enduro, downhill, freeride, and youth mountain bikers alike. Read more about this exciting project here.
