Accommodation

Big White is well known for its massive choice of family friendly accommodation, with condos to suit every group and budget. Whether you’re looking for a luxurious stay or working within a more restricted budget, you’ll find well-equipped hotels and condos to meet your needs.

Some condos are situated near the village while others are closer to the slopes. Many of the latter are ski-in-ski-out or at the most, just a few steps from the snow. You can also choose whether you want a completely self-contained condo or one within a serviced building, which may include a swimming pool.

Pretty much all of the accommodation you’ll find at Big White comes with a hot tub – just perfect when it comes to winding down after a long day on the slopes!

Activities

There’s plenty of action to keep families entertained on and off the mountain at Big White, with a fantastic ice-skating rink, tubing, a fun ski-doo track and a massive 60ft ice-climbing wall. You can also get yourself a guide and, with appropriate safety gear, head out to the back country for some adventurous cross-country skiing.

Big White has an excellent terrain park that’s home to Kelsey Serwa, Canada’s X Games champion and Olympic silver medallist. There’s also a Ski school on the mountain and if you’re booking the kids in, they’ll be fitted with a GPS tracking device, so you’ll always know where they are.

Getting There

To get there, take a quick 45-minute flight from Vancouver which is serviced by Air Canada. Airport shuttles meet every flight and take you directly to the resort in under an hour. Inter resort shuttles are available from Whistler, Sun Peaks and Silver Star if you’re looking at exploring another destination while in Canada. Once you’re in Big White, you won’t need a car. This well planned family friendly resort is pedestrian friendly and most of the condos are situated around the village, where you’ll also find the ski school, ski and board hire, shops and a supermarket, restaurants and bars.

Getting There & Around

With over 3,000 hectares of varied terrain, Big White has plenty to challenge every boarder and skier. 18% of this massive area is for beginners, 54% for intermediates, 22% for advanced and 6% for experts. With green runs off every chair, regardless of your group’s abilities, you’ll have endless opportunities to ski together.

Beginners will love learning at Happy Valley before venturing out to find easy runs scattered across the mountain. For intermediates, there are endless beautifully groomed quad burning runs taking you back to the village centre or Ridge Day Lodge, as well as picturesque gladed areas and more challenging but achievable black runs. And, if you just can’t get enough of the white stuff, Big White has 15 hectares of night skiing.

An average 8 metres of beautiful dry snow falls on Big White every year and you can enjoy some incredible tree runs on powder days. While the mountain can be exposed to tough conditions, you’ll find protection among the trees and on Black Forest Express.
