Big White is known for its dry inland powder snow with a huge variety of terrain from well groomed runs to huge powder bowls and deep double black diamond runs. The village is ski in/ski out and is famous for the carnival nights, parades, fireworks and the excellent Big White Kids Centre making the resort a good choice for an all round winter ski holiday. The lift pass covers the neighbouring resort of Silver Star and there is a daily shuttle.
The good news is that beginners can experience the whole mountain as there is a green run from the top of every lift and an excellent ski school.
A great family ski area where the whole family can ski together. There is a brilliant selection of runs, all neatly groomed and rollercoast through the trees.
There is a fantastic choice of black runs and there are glades and steep slopes in abundance. Take a look at the Parachute Bowl for the ultimate challenge.
As well as enjoying the great champagne powder and the network of runs available to all abilities, there are also three snowboarding (two at competition level) parks to experience.
