Skiing isn't the only thing to do in Big White. There is a magnitude of other activities as well such as; snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, ice climbing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, Kids' mini snowmobiles, tubing and ice skating! So, as you can see you will never be bored at Big White.

There is also plenty of lodging available, most with great ski access and gorgeous views. There are over 17,000 beds total throughout the resort!

One of the greatest things about Big White would have to be all of the events! There is an event almost every weekend. Since Big White is in the Okanagan Valley wine countr,y many of these events feature the local wineries! 

Big White is definitely worth the visit if you like clean air, expansive views, great eats, lots of activities and lastly, great wine!

When I toured Big White, I found it nestled in the Okanagan Highland - an upland area between the Monashee Mountains and the Okanagan valley. It is about 35 miles southeast of Kelowna, B.C. Big White benefits from storms coming in off the Pacific, which drop consistent and considerable fresh powder every winter. The focus here is on families with everything from the Mega Snow Coaster tubing to night skiing and everything in between. I found that they also have ice skating, snowshoeing, ice climbing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling and there are even mini snowmobiles for the kids! Of course they also offer both nordic and alpine skiing, as well as snowboarding. Tired from all of these activities? Try the Sno Limo with your own private chauffer who will whisk you around the mountain to see the sights. At the end of the day sample one of the 23 bar and dining options or check out the many Spa services that are offered. What really surprised me , however was the abundance of deluxe properties at value prices. At Big White I found dozens of ski-in and ski-out options and many of these with private hot tubs. They have condo's, hotels and private home, Big White has it all. Call me today to discuss a package to this all in one ski destination.
