“Big White - Big secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

This snow sport resort is amazing. I've been to the French Alps - too busy, too expensive (blatant rip off), over commercialised and, old hat IMHO. Whistler? Yup, been there and it's good. But for serious skiing, snowboarding, skidoos in a vast landscape with no large crowds, no (too) rowdy après ski - it's civilised! - Big White is really geared up for family ski holidays. The accommodation we stayed at was excellent - ski out and ski in to the front door. 180 runs of every kind imaginable, great restaurants, top ski instructors, brilliant ski school for kids and novices in a vast expanse of champagne powder snow. Great value for money in resort - It's paradise. Took a day out and went on a snowmobile safari. Wow. Into serious wilderness through virgin snow - 12 skidoos (3 instructors / guides with us). 3 hours. The best! The down side? From Scotland it was 3 flights to get there but I managed it door to door Glasgow to Kelowna in 16 hours. I'll be back next season and can't wait

“Awesome hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Everything about this place is amazing. The snow, the runs, the fact that there's never any lineup... my favourite hill by far.

“THE BEST !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Wow... Jim Loyd and the rest of the Big White staff are excellent HOSTs !!!

#1 - Great Snow. Over 2' of fresh powder the week we were there!

#2- Great people. We always ski late in the season in March and have (at other resorts) run into staff that were 'over it' if you know what I mean. But not at BW...everyone was super happy and fun to be around.

#3- Great accommodations. (we stayed at Stone bridge #2404) True ski in/ out. close to the village. Perfect for romantic walks to and from dinner or cocktails.

Book your trip today...you won't regret it

“Best interior resort for us so far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

We love Big White. Huge terrain, excellent grooming and great value (compared to Whistler). We have stayed in Sun Peaks & Silverstar and although they are excellent in their own right, we are always most comfortable at BW. Our kids were in the kids program and now in their 20's and is still suited for them with enough challenging terrain and yet enough gentle terrain for the old folks! We always get good rentals from the BW Rental team and they are always happy to satisfy. Good quality all around.
