Big White

Big White Ski Resort, home to world-famous Okanagan Champagne Powder and Canada’s favourite family resort, is now open for the 2018/2019 season!

The resort will stay open until April 22, 2019 – making our season the longest in the Okanagan. There are some exciting new developments this year, too, like the new Powder Chair, a new run “The General,” and a new skiers tunnel on Hummingbird.

Mother Nature has already gifted us with a few good dumps of powder, and we’re looking forward to the hundreds of centimetres more that will accumulate over the next couple months. Each year, Big White receives an average of 25 feet of snow, responsible for shaping our famed snow ghosts. Big White, just a short 45-minute drive from Kelowna, is Canada’s largest ski-in and ski-out village, boasting over 17,000 on-mountain beds. With 119 runs, five powder bowls, and plenty of bluebird days, there’s good reason we’ve been consistently voted as one of the top ski resorts in the world.

From snowmobiling to dog sled tours, ice climbing to fat biking, at Big White Ski Resort, there’s something for everyone. The resort is also home to over 20 on-mountain restaurants, cafes, delis, pubs and nightclubs, meaning there’s endless options for guests to replenish and relax after a long day on the slopes.

Looking to learn how to ski or snowboard this year, or feeling a bit wobbly on your planks and need a refresher? Look no further than Big White Ski & Board School. Along with group lessons and private lessons for every level of skier and snowboarder, we offer Discover Packages and Next Step Programs for those looking to learn the sport or get back into it after a long absence.

And don’t forget about our action-packed Events calendar. There’s something happening every night of the week at Big White Ski Resort, including a fireworks display every Saturday night during the season. Spending time with family and friends has never been more fun!

When summer rolls around, join us to play in our multi-season playground, home to British Columbia’s newest bike park. Escape the city and enjoy the fresh mountain air in the summer by exploring the alpine hiking trails, or get a dose of adrenaline at world-class, lift-serviced Bike Big White. If relaxation is your game, take in the incredible landscape on a scenic chairlift ride or attend one of the many events and festivals held throughout the summer, such as our Ciderfest and Craft & Country Beer & Music Festival.

Big White Ski Resort is the place to be this winter. Come up and see for yourself, or visit www.bigwhite.com to learn more.
