Big White Activities Guide
Congratulations on selecting Big White as your Skican vacation destination! Although Big White is best known for its terrific skiing/riding, the area offers plenty of additional activities for you to enjoy during your stay.
On select nights from mid-December to mid-March, you can ski at the largest night skiing area in Western Canada. Night skiing is included in all multi-day passes (when available & weather permitting).
With 25km (15.5 miles) of Nordic trails, there is plenty of room to explore. Whether you're a novice or an experienced Nordic skier, Big White has trails to challenge you.
Come and explore the region on the newest sport to hit the hills. Ride the various Nordic trails on a K-trak Ski-Mountain-Bike. Full instruction is included in the tour, and all ages are welcome as long as individuals are above 5ft in height. Tours depart daily from the top of the gondola in the village centre, but reservations are required 24 hours in advance. Swing by the activities desk to inquire about this exciting activity.
It's a great way for non-skiers and non-snowboarders to explore the mountain! Your personal Chauffeur will guide you around the mountain in a sled, giving you the opportunity to take in the magnificent scenery. Perhaps the best part about Snow Limos is that it allows non skiers to follow their loved ones around the Mountain. Please enquire at the Ski School desk for more information, or to make a reservation.
