Big White Receives Prestigious Canadian Ski Patrol Award
Kelowna, BC – Big White Ski Resort's new President Peter Plimmer is pleased to accept the national award for Outstanding Contribution to the CSP from Colin Saravanamutto, CEO of the Canadian Ski Patrol. This award is given to an individual or organization to recognize an extraordinary contribution to the Canadian Ski Patrol System. “It is very rare that a resort receives this award,” said Saravanamutto. “Big White is being credited for their joint marketing efforts with the Canadian Ski Patrol, especially the naming of the Ogopogo Zone as the Zone of the Year by the Canadian Ski Patrol,” Saravanamutto continued.
