Big White

This summer, point your car in the direction of snow cones, hiking trails, bouncy castles, festivals and beer gardens. Point it towards alpine lakes, fields of wildflowers and jaw-dropping mountain views. This summer, pack your bags, strap in the kids and make your way to Big White Mountain, open for the summer season on June 27.

It’s difficult to imagine Big White without its blanket of snow, but trust us, there’s heaps of summer fun to be had once winter melts away – and it’s all within a 45-minutes drive from Kelowna.

Whether you’re looking for a one-hour walk or a full-day adventure, our extensive network of alpine trails, winding their way up, down and around the mountain, are perfect for everyone from five to 85 – and will give your senses the holiday they deserve. Smell the crisp, clean air of the alpine. Spot the Indian Paintbrush, the Pasque Flower and the Narrowleaf Hawkweed, just to name a few of the many wildflowers dotting the mountain side. Take in the spectacular view of the Monashee and Selkirk mountain ranges.

These sights, smells and sounds are also just a short ride up our padded Bullet Express Chair, where you can bask in the spectacular blue of Rhonda Lake, situated at the base of The Cliff at over 2,000 metres above sea level. Rhonda Lake holds 75 million gallons of mountain water – water that’s been confirmed as some of the best in the world!

Being Canada’s Favourite Family Resort doesn’t end when the snowfall does. On select weekends throughout the summer, witness the Village transform for our free kids’ carnival, complete with cotton candy, lawn games, face painting and so much more. We have a packed calendar of fun, family friendly events throughout the summer season, including Adventure Camps for kids of all ages, our inaugural Freeride Days, our 5th annual Craft and Country Beer and Music Festival and of course, the 5th L’Alpe de Grand Blanc – a 60-kilometre road bike ride from Kelowna to Big White – to name a few.

If you, your kids or grandkids are interested in getting into mountain biking, Big White’s Bike School is the place to start. Our world-class instructors will get you comfortable on two wheels, and with 20 kilometres of trails from beginner to pro, have you ripping down the mountain in no time at all.

And, if you book your summer getaway with Big White Central Reservations, your lift tickets for biking or hiking are on us! That’s right! Bike and hike for FREE when you stay in select hotel rooms and condominiums. Looking for a more rustic vacation? Bring your RV or tent, and set up in our campground at Black Forest – complete with washrooms, outdoor showers and picnic tables. Pets welcome! Email [email protected] to book your trip today.
