Spent 2 days skiing here over spring break. There on a Monday-Tuesday, so lifts lines were minimal. I did notice they were longer on the Bullet-Black Forest side of the mountain as there is more green/blue runs there. 1st day was clear blue sky all day. Excellent views from the top. 2nd day snowed all day and top half of... More

I try to avoid judging ski areas by the skiing if I'm only there for a weekend (and racer chasing) as we are at the mercy of weather etc. We had all the conditions you can have in winter during our 4 day visit. The snow was white and slippery. Signage and or trail markings could be a lot better... More

I can't say enough about Big White that hasn't already been said. You have to experience it for yourself. The place runs like swiss watch, flawlessly and effortless. I will go back as many times as I can. Love it there. The slopes and ski operations are tops. Even more surprising is everything else that is going on around the... More

My family and I had a great time at Big White. Overall the staff were friendly and helpful. The ski school staff were really good. The kids ski school was well organized, well priced and our kids learned many new skills and really enjoying it. Small lift lines and decent conditions for mid march. The resort also has a nice...

A very easy mountain to get around. You can move from one side of the mountain to the other with no traversing just skiing. This is something you need to do sometimes as the visibility can be an issue. The village is great. It could use a bit more variety in dining options but what is there is fantastic. The... More

Was here for family day weekend, and was happily surprised how quick the lineups were! This place is the real deal, and I'd thinking more of a snowboarder mountain though there are plenty of skiiers up there. Great night boarding. Try to get a ski-in/ski-out chalet, as it's a 40 minute drive from Kelowna, and the mountain roads up can... More

This hill is easy to get to within 40 minutes from downtown Kelowna but is more of a family hill and the terrain pretty easy-peasy but still fun and for $26 for night skiing you cant go wrong!

Big White likes to pitch itself as a mini-Whistler, and if that ambition includes long lift queues, busy pistes at the weekends and crazy skiers/boarders who have no knowledge or respect of the alpine code, then yes, it is a mini Whistler. This is a steep(ish) mountain, which was a bit of a pain as I like to ski easy... More

Great location, just a short walk out the front door and onto the ski runs straight down to the village or to the Bullet Express or Black Forest chair lifts. The condo itself is warm and cosy and truly feels like home away from home, perfect for those people that, like us, like to eat indoors most of the time.... More
