WHAT'S NEW: The BullWheel is back!

October 14, 2016 / 7:46 AM



Visitors to Big White Ski Resort will be able to enjoy an authentic Canadian culinary experience on the mountain this winter, with the re-opening of The BullWheel family gastropub.

The BullWheel was a hotspot for great food and fun at Big White Ski Resort from 2011 - 2014. After a brief hiatus, the restaurant is back in a new location on the mountain –  next to the bullwheel of Lara’s Gondola.

The new location in the heart of the Village makes it the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Skiers and snowboarders will also enjoy the convenience of skiing to the front door for some après-ski fun. 

The BullWheel will seat 200 people and feature a family-friendly, slope side restaurant, a sports bar and an outdoor patio for soaking up bluebird days.

Owner John Mooney aims to bring the best of Canadian culture and cuisine to The BullWheel, making the most of ingredients from every province and territory across the country.

Unique dishes from across Canada will feature heavily, including the French Canadian classic Tourtiere Wellington, smoked eel pasta from New Brunswick, and the infamous BullWheel burger featuring AAA Alberta beef.

Salmon and maple flavours will also be highlighted on the menu, created by Jeremy Keogh, executive chef at fine dining restaurant 6 Degrees Bistro.

Younger guests will love the kid-friendly dinner features, including an option to make their own pizza.

Drinks won’t be forgotten, with a classic Canadian Caesar, alongside a wide selection of Canadian and international beers and wines.

“We’re looking forward to having a gastropub where the whole family can relax by the fireplace while enjoying family-style dining,” explains Mooney. “The sports bar will be the perfect place to enjoy fish tacos and burgers while watching hockey or learning something about Canadian sport.  And with the outdoor fire pit, the patio will be the ideal spot to hang out on sunny days.”

The BullWheel will be the home of Beano’s Coffee Parlour.  John Mooney and the team have been keeping Big White caffeinated for 21 years.  “I love coffee, and have had the great fortune of serving customers at Big White a great local Cherry Hill Coffee,” explains John. “There is nothing greater than starting the day with an excellent coffee, and catching up with our regulars and meeting new guests.  We have amazing people visiting this place, it makes my job easy.”

The BullWheel will be open from November until April 17, daily from 7am – late. Find more details at www.thebullwheel.ca
