Skiing & Snowboarding

Big White Ski Resort is all about snow – 750cm/25ft of dry powder on average every year.
Ski Canada Magazine repeatedly rates it "Best Powder" and Condé Nast Traveler readers have declared it the "Best Snow in North America." Located in the Thompson Okanagan highlands, 56km/35mi southeast of Kelowna, Big White is fully focused on winter sports like skiing and snowboarding.
More than 70 per cent of the 118 marked runs are rated blue or green with select areas set aside for beginners. But there's no shortage of black diamond action, and nearly 10 per cent of runs are rated extreme with double black diamond adventure in the high powder bowls, especially off the Cliff Chair. It's always possible to find a stash of hidden powder and regulars say that skiing and snowboarding the fresh powder among the snow ghosts (snow-covered trees) is almost spiritual.
