We are heading to Big White in a couple of weeks and need to ask a few questions - hoping locals or frequent travellers might be able to help out.
We arrive in Kelowna early afternoon but can't check in up on the slopes until 4pm, so we were hoping to leave one of our party with all the stuff at the airport and hit the shops so we can get some supplies to take up with us. How far would you say it would be to the closest grocery store to the airport, and would we need to take a taxi to get there?
Also, the BW shuttle is exorbitantly priced for a party of our size. Last time we came we had 1 less person and we caught a taxi up the mountain - which from memory cost us about $100, but was a cheaper way than the shuttle. This time we have 5 people (3 adults, 2 children) travelling and all our ski gear so we are not sure if we could all fit into a taxi together?
Does anyone know of any other options of transportation to get up the mountain or how much a cab costs to get up there these days? (we haven't been in 4 years)
Thanks in advance!
