Big White

A purpose built ski village in the heart of Canada's British Columbia province, Big White is a totally ski-in, ski-out wintersports destination. In addition to the doorstep skiing all facilities of the modern resort are within walking distance.There aren't many great undiscovered ski resorts left in the world, but Big White ski resort is one them.

Big White is located in the Monashee mountain range in Canada’s Okanagan. This area of lakes and rolling hills is famous locally for mild temperatures, ice wine and champagne powder. Snowfall is plentiful with historical records showing an average of 24 feet (7 metres) each winter. As with many North American ski resorts the vertical drops are relatively short, but the efficient lift system gets you up the mountain quickly. Thanks to the sunny, dry climate the area typically enjoys the snow is fine and light and responsible for creating the resort’s world famous ‘snow ghosts’. When to go? February is a good choice. While European ski resorts are in the grip of school half term fever, Big White is relatively quiet: the March spring break is the resort’s peak holiday period.
