Timing Dec 26 - Jan 1st.
Family of 5. Ages 11, 13, 15.
Snow. Snow was great. I dont know how it could be better, The base was great, the snow at all levels on the hill was amazing. Great view from the top. Usually the bottom of the hill was overcast and the top was often sunny. Very little fog. Night skiing was fun as well. Big White is a great place to ski the trees. lots of options from open tree runs to tighter.
Hill. The layout of the hill / village at Big White is great. You can ski in and out everywhere. Really liked that you were able to ski down to any lift. ie the village and accomodations are above the bottom of the hill. Were were expecting it to be a busy time but there were almost no lines on any lift. The first two days we skied right onto the chair. Near the end there were some 5 minute lines occasionally.
Village. Easy to walk anywhere, 4-5 different food options, all good, also a small market for buying food.
I rented skis on the trip and they were great, All the brand new skiis were there to try.
Hotel. The hotel is very new. The rooms are very spacious, it's more like an apartment than a hotel room. Our suite had two bedrooms off the main room, each had a full bathroom with shower. There were marble countertops in the kitchen and the ceiling were 12' high. I liked how there were ski lockers on the first floor. You could ski right there and go in a seperate entrance to the locker. 2 hot tubs and pool. Kids loved it.
We were able to let our kids just take off and meet up with us or come back to hotel. I think overall this place is way better than
whistler. The snow sure is alot better.
I'd go back to big white in a second, my number 1 ski trip.
