Big White

Overview

Big White is a purpose built resort and therefore offers a lot of ski-in ski-out accommodation, however if you want extensive skiing you would be better to combine your stay here with another resort. Experts will find some seriously good blacks, some bump runs and glades waiting to be explored. Big White has plenty of long blues & greens to cruise down & will ideally suit intermediates and families, with some great opportunities to learn how to ski powder on easy slopes. Beginners have a dedicated nursery area and some good long green runs to progress to once their confidence builds. Boarders can rest easy in the knowledge that there are very few flat areas and the lifts are boarder friendly.
