Big White selling off classic gondola cabins for charity

Own a piece of Big White

Don't miss your chance to own a little piece of Big White.

The ski resort is selling of a "limited number" of gondola cabins to the public.

At over 20 years old, the gondolas are at the end of their life as lift cabins, "but I'm sure with your imagination you can think of other wonderful things and enjoyment that they can provide in your restaurant, cabin, lobby, backyard or even at a Super Natural British Columbia retreat," said Michael J. Ballingall, vice-president of Big White.

"There is only one other resort in the world with gondolas like ours."

The gondolas were created just for Big White and are designed to look like Cinderella's carriage.

Ballingall says they are selling eight of the remaining 16 gondolas for $5,500 plus tax, with all proceeds being donated to a special B.C. charity.

"You will need to come to Big White Ski Resort with a low bed trailer and we will load it on your trailer and use our certified tie downs to secure the gondola (with your assistance) to your trailer," Balingall says.

The new gondola cabins are ready to go into service as soon as the weather switches into winter mode. Ballingall says the replacement value on the new cabins is just under $100,000.

Big White plans to open for the winter ski season on Nov. 24, 2022.
