Big White Ski Resort
Big White Ski Resort is a fantastic winter vacation destination for all types of skiers and snowboarders, offering wide expansive terrain, light dry powder, short lift lines and modern facilities. The Big White Village is home to the most ski-in/ski-out accommodations in Canada. Located in scenic British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, Big White is about 56 kilometers or 35 miles outside the town of Kelowna. The Coast Mountains shield the Okanagan Valley from wet Pacific air and that produces an average of 750cm/300in of powder every year. Big White Mountain offers a variety of terrain for all ability levels. The majority of the 118 marked runs on the mostly south-facing slopes are blue and green with select areas set aside for beginners, but there's no shortage of black diamond action and double black diamond adventure in the high powder bowls. Big White also provides an unusual amount of glade skiing, with almost no place on the mountain where it isn't possible to ski among the trees – a special treat for guests in-between storms. Ski Canada repeatedly ranks Big White Ski Resort for "Best Tree Skiing" and "Best Glade Skiing." The resort is an excellent family destination offering a wide array of family-friendly activities, including snowshoeing, tubing, skating, snowmobiling, dog sledding, horse-drawn sleigh rides and Nordic skiing.
