  • Mar 25, 2019: “We just finished an eight night stay at Big White. We hit unseasonably warm weather, therefor subpar conditions, and still had the best vacation. Our kids did private and group snowboard lessons and absolutely loved their coaches. We were really impressed with the quality of the lessons. Our boys went from total beginners to easily tree snowboarding in days! We are out at almost all of the restaurants. Bullwheel was probably our favorite for the food/atmosphere. We loved Sessions for a mid-day drink and appetizer. We stayed at Grizzley Lodge and were impressed with the condo and ease to get to the Village. We all can’t wait to come again next seasons!” 0
  • Mar 20, 2019: “Big White is just the mountain small village: no fancy shops or town. Handful of good restaurants and watering holes. Lots of mountain to cover on skis. Is all about the snow. Will have snow when US does not. Family friendly. Good instructors. No lift lines. A hidden gem!” 1
  • Mar 19, 2019: “My family of 4 (kids aged 8 & 4) have seasons ski passes to Big White as we live under an hour away from the resort. We have stayed overnight as guests and are regular daily visitors to the mountain. There are tonnes of ski in/ski out places to stay which I highly recommend. There's nothing like waking up & getting in a run or two before breakfast! My kids have each taken private lessons & group lessons. They have both had a good experience skiing with the instructors & are now quite good because of it. We have also used the equipment rental & found the equipment to be in good condition with current models/name brands. There are runs for everyone - each chair has at least one green & blue run from it & the ski patrol is excellent at patrolling the runs. The quality of the snow at Big White is something special - I've not quite experienced anything like it before in Canada & even people who have skied Whistler will attest to that. For the BEST snow, come in January/February. The spring skiing in March is great, but it is definitely a little slushier (although it's amazing to ski without a heavy jacket). If you're staying at Big White, there's lots to do with the family - tonnes of great places to eat, carnival night, bingo night, fireworks on Saturday evenings, skating, snowmobiling, horse drawn sleigh, tubing & SO much more.” 2
