Big White Ski Holidays

‘It’s the snow’ that Big White shouts about and quite rightly too: Tonnes of dry ‘champagne’ powder fall on the place each year, making for a superb ski holiday to Big White. The ski-in/ski-out village offers plenty of first-class accommodation and an entertaining range of off slope activities all contribute to a great Big White ski holiday.

There is terrain to suit all abilities, across 2,765 acres, from deep powder bowls to wide-open groomers. The resort is a cruiser’s paradise with plenty of long green and blue runs. On your ski holiday to Big White you will find each lift accesses a novice trail and improvers will relish the opportunities across the mountain to progress. The renowned terrain park is a draw as is the ski/boarder-cross course! On a Big White ski holiday, experts will head towards Sun Rype Bowl after a big snow fall and there are some great glades too. The resort’s amazing ‘Snowghosts’ are a must see, with the runs through these snow-caked trees are stunning. New for 2015-16 is the Black Forest Day Lodge which will open in December.

Perfect for your family, a luxury ski holiday to Big White is the best choice.

Big White is recognised as one of the top family ski holiday resorts in the world, actively designing facilities with families in mind, from designated family and senior slow skiing trails, where every day three runs are gated and controlled, to having family focused après ski. Child-friendly food, hot chocolate, evening activities with board games and movies are just some of the other family friendly services available on your Big White ski holiday. The Tot Town Day-care is available for children aged 18 months to 5 years.

Just 40 minutes from Kelowna airport, your Big White ski holiday convenience continues in its slopeside lodging – a variety of hotel and condo accommodation ranging from the luxurious to the more budget. Much of the lodging is privately owned so the décor and amenities do vary. There is a selection of restaurants and bars with Snowshoe Sam’s perhaps the liveliest spot, often hosting a live band or some kind of evening entertainment.

Activities

There are plenty of activity options on your Big White ski holiday, Happy Valley area features a skating lake, the Mega Snow Coaster tubing park and snowmobiles, again with families in mind, in both adult and child sizes, as well as an ice-climbing tower. A Ski holiday to Big White also offers cross-country skiing, dog-sledding, snowshoeing and horse-drawn sleigh rides. You can also relax in the day spa.

Big White Lift Passes

We include lift passes in all Big White holidays as when booked together you make a very good saving.

Big White Rentals

You can also prepurchase your rentals through us and again it will be cheaper than waiting until you arrive into the resort. The earlier you book the cheaper it will be!

Children equipment is valid up to and including 12 years.

Master's Ski Week

This annual event is highly social and designed specifically with passionate skiers and snowboarders aged 50yrs and over in mind.  It’s a great opportunity to meet other snow enthusiasts, in a relaxed, friendly, atmosphere.  Whether you enjoy carving down perfectly groomed corduroy or tackling world famous Okanagan champagne powder in the glades, this week offers something for everyone. Masters of ALL skiing and snowboarding abilities can enjoy seminars, wine tasting, après high tea, sleigh rides and more. It takes place in early February annually.
