Big White Ski Resort

Those on the hunt for a laid-back Canada family ski destination will find a Big White ski vacation high on their list. Located in British Columbia's picturesque Okanagan Valley, Big White is uniquely blessed with sunny weather, dry powder and mild temperatures. With 118 marked runs fanning from the summit, 2,565 acres of skiable terrain, 16 lifts and 25 feet of snowfall annually, there‘s a great selection of terrain for everyone, from deep-powder bowls, wide-open glades and great fall-line cruising, to the ultimate park experience at Big White’s award-winning Telus Terrain Park. Take advantage of Big White’s most unique scenery and ski amongst “snow ghosts,” or snow- and ice-caked trees, which create a magical backdrop in this winter playground, and provide perfect photo opportunities.

As a premier family destination, Big White has a great range of events and activities for the entire family including snowmobiling, exploring the backcountry on cross-country skis or snowshoes, wilderness tours via sleigh or dog sled, night-skiing, snow-tubing, ice-skating, mini z’s, fireworks and carnivals, just to name a few. After a day on the slopes, enjoy Big White’s buffet of restaurants, lounges, coffee houses, delis, bakeries, cozy pubs and bars to choose from. Whatever you’re after, Big White has a scene to suit your pace. Big White’s numerous ski-in, ski-out lodging options at the base area and the resort’s car-free mid-mountain village takes the guesswork out of getting around, and make Big White a favorite among families and large groups.

Located just 35 miles southeast of Kelowna, getting to Big White is easy and the travel options are plenty. Major airlines fly daily into Kelowna’s international airport which is the major gateway into interior B.C.

Ski Big White

About 32 percent of the Big White ski area is groomed, making it a haven for intermediates, families and beginners. Big White may not be hailed as an expert-skier or snowboarder destination, but the reality is that thrill-seekers have plenty of black diamond runs, steep alpine bowls and off-piste terrain.
