Resort Overview

BIG WHITE SKI RESORT. AWARDED NORTH AMERICA'S FAVOURITE FAMILY RESORT!

Imagine a place where 24.5 feet of the lightest, fluffiest snow falls from the heavens each year. After being whisked to the top of the mountain by high speed express chairlifts you can choose between long groomed cruisers, powder filled bowls, tree skiing, or the terrain park.  It's a huge mountain experience with 2,765 skiable acres and 118 alpine runs.

Big White Ski Resort is Canada's largest completely ski-in/ski-out resort village.  With room for over 17,200 guests, you can choose from luxury full-service hotels, 4 and 5 star condominiums, deluxe town homes, or cozy cabins in the woods with private hot tubs and warm fireplaces. The Main Street is a ski run where guests can slide right to their doorstep and take a leisurely stroll through the village where a variety of shops, restaurants, and après ski entertainment awaits.  If you want to relax, try one of the two on-mountain day spas, or enjoy an evening at one of the many restaurants, bars, and pubs.

Big White has different events for kids every night of the week, from carnivals and firework extravaganzas, to movies.  The Kids Centre is like a mountain playground, working closely with the Ski and Board School to teach your children for 2 hours or the whole day.  Weekly craft, climbing, and dinner activities are popular amongst the kids.

Resort Activities

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.

Night Skiing

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).

Nordic Skiing

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.

Snow Biking

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.

Snow Limos

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.

Ice Climbing Tower

Check out Big White’s 60 foot Ice Tower! The four-sided structure has a beginner side, as well as three other sides with more advanced terrain. The wall is located in the Happy Valley Adventure Park, and all climbs are supervised by an American Mountain Guides Association certified guide.
