Big White is the second largest ski resort in British Columbia, second only to the Whistler/Blackcomb resort. Both resorts offer fantastic ski runs, as well as comfortable accommodation.
While Whistler Vacation Rentals and Whistler Hotels are some of the best around, there’s plenty to find in Big White too.
Skiing at Big White
Big White is known as one of Canada’s finest ski resorts, alongside Whistler, because it gets at least 750cm of snow each season, which means there’s plenty of skiing and snowboarding to be enjoyed all season long!
Big White also has Canada’s largest ski in and out village, and has accommodation to suit every budget, for every sized group, from singles, to families, to larger groups. On the mountain you’ll find 18 restaurants, delis, nightclubs, pubs, and cafes, so there’s plenty of entertainment both on and off the slopes.
A Great Place for the Family
Big White ski resort is also a family friendly destination, with both daytime and night time entertainment for the kids (as well as the rest of the family). One place every family should know about is the Big White Kids Centre, which means the parents can enjoy skiing or snowboarding at their own level and pace, while the kids learn skiing skills too.
Big White has 118 ski runs, accessed by 16 lifts, as well as five alpine bowls, a skating rink, terrain and tubing parks, as well as 2,765 acres of terrain which can be traversed by snow mobiles.
