“Third Time Returning....Says It All”
Reviewed 11 December 2014

This is our 3rd two week trip to what my kids call "The Most Fun Place, EVER!

From the moment you check in at Central Reservations, you will be treated like family. Everything is so well organized, check-in very quick, and before you know it you are in your residence. We always stay at Bullet Creek, close to everything yet very private.

The ski school staff, equipment, GPS FOR THE KIDS, everything is such a fun experience. You can tell everyone loves what they are doing.

An hour from Kelowna, we load up on groceries in town then drive to the resort. Do most of our own cooking but do eat out a few evenings and enjoy the pizza down stairs in the main lodge.

Tubing, snow mobile, ice tower climbing, sleigh rides, ice skating, dog sledding, AND OF COURSE THE POWDER SNOW.... OMG!!!! THE POWDER AND BLUE SKIES!!!

The restaurants are somewhat limited, reserve Christmas Dinner early because they fill up quick if you plan to eat out.

The Village is awesome, not too big, not too small, very welcoming at all times. There are fun family activities most evenings.

Traveling about as far as you can, from the Florida Keys to BC, the trip is worth every cent, every moment, every breath-taking adventure.

NO WORRIES, MATE!!!

“Skiing Big White”
Reviewed 10 December 2014

We loved Big White. The amount of different activities offered means no one is at a loss for something to do, or if you just want to relax than that's very easy to do at Big White.
A suggestion is to try and arrive before dark, or first trip up the mountain was dark and foggy. Since we didn't know the road, it was a slow trip up. Snow tires are a must for this road. We stayed at Grizzly Lodge and the condo was excellent and close to the main lodge. Only one small complaint was the hot tub could have been hotter. All in all excellent place for a ski trip, we'll go back.

“Amazing beautiful place!”
Reviewed 9 December 2014

I wanted to write a review on the ski/snowboarding school as it was fantastic. The instructors were so positive and fun. I was going on the chair lift after 2 lessons. If you get Jamie as your snowboard instructor you will have the best day ever.

“Pleasant ski village that goes out of its way to make you welcome and your stay enjoyable”
Reviewed 3 December 2014

This is the Third year I have come to opening weekend at the Hill . I come to enjoy the Big White Car Rally but also ski and relax in comfortable accommodation . This year I am spending 7 days on the hill to see that I have the time to take it all in . Most everything is within walking distance and it is know for its ski out quality . The restaurants are top shelf , especially the Blarney Stone and the employees are a very international bunch and so enjoying being here . I can not think of a negative comment about the hill ..

“Wonderful skiing destination”
Reviewed 8 November 2014

Big White is a wonderful skiing destination. Great snow, beautiful resort and friendly staff. We stayed at Stonebridge lodge and it was great, our room was a one bed apartment with a spa on the deck and after a day on the slopes what a treat. The resort has a variety of restaurants and a well stocked supermarket. We would return again and we highly recommend big white to both families and couples.
