I've been coming to Big White most of my life. It truly is a great mountain. It features the second the most skiable terrain in BC, and I believe in Canada (next to Whistler). One of the great things about Big White is that the terrain is pretty safe. You won't be accidentally be falling off cliffs or anything like... More

The resort is small, but it is all spread out on a slope. There is a bus running every half hour, but many places may be in between the few stops. Believe me, it can get real cold (minus 20+C) here to make a 0.2km walk miserable. The lifts are not shielded from the elements so it can be very... More

It is absolutely beautiful. Great runs, great snow, great restaurants and accommodation and all the staff around the resort have been extremely friendly.... More

The missing star is because there are very few affordable accommodation solutions and you always have to book for 2 nights in the high season. Countless times we have decided we might like to stay the night and snowboard the next day however the mountain does not accommodate those on a modest budget because they know they can get more...

This was our second Christmas ski trip to Big White and we loved it again. The resort is fantastic for families with great runs, amazing snow, really kid friendly ski school staff and awesome accommodations to choose from. We rented a condo in Stonegate and learned we need to be picky about the location as our ski out was quite... More

Just had our winter trip here. Turned out very nice. Staff not the mountain were friendly. Just a few points though. Kind of awkward having to ski through the village and pole a lot to get from major lift to the others. Also I feel that they are now a little overcrowded and are do not have the capacity yet....

This is our "Go To" resort and this visit strengthened that bond even more. We went to the gun barrel, the woods, Blarney Stone, they all exceeded expectations. But that isn't why we will come back next year. The Guest Services ("Natalia") went above and way beyond what is expected for a resort. I'm not going to go into details,... More

Sadly the breakfast a disappointment. $186 for breakfast for a family of 4 was not worth it. Don't waste your $. Pro: pretty (albeit brief) ride. Super friendly driver Con: when you arrive at the cabin for breakfast - it is under whelming. Small plain wooden cabin (more like a shed) that just about fits two long tables accommodating about...
