Big White Ski Resort

Big White Ski Resort is one big winter playground. Here, at Canada’s largest totally ski-in/ski-out resort village, you’ll find loads of deep Okanagan powder (25 feet annually), 16 lifts, 119 runs, and 1,354 hectares (3,345 acres) of skiable terrain for powderhounds of all ages and abilities.

Cross-country skiers and snowshoers can choose from 25 kilometres (16 miles) of Nordic and dog-friendly wilderness trails, while families can add tubing, dogsledding, snowmobiling, ice-climbing, horse drawn sleigh rides, and skating to their winter holiday. The resort also has a full calendar of fun family events from Opening Day Celebrations in November to the annual Slush Cup in April.

  • Oct 19, 2019: “We fell in love with this ski resort when we visited in Dec 2018. We returned to it in Jan and April 2019. Staff is friendly. We stayed at the Chateau Big White and Inn at Big White. Took advantage of the Ski For Free deal. Both hotels were clean and had easy access. Chateau Big White had the true ski in/out. I am so excited to return to the resort. Already have my next trip in December booked.” 0
  • Jul 16, 2019: “We live in Kelowna and day trip or weekend here regularly. I/we mostly take it for granted and I do lament a little the popularity and crowds, but they're for a reason: this place is close to perfect. Compared to places like Whistler you're never really in a comparable queue. But this made me offer a positive review: they really cared about a predicament I was in. We had lost my youngest boy's ski... he was devastated. I had a rough idea where and how. I went to guest services to see if it was returned. It was not, at least not yet. Michael J gave it his personal attention to see that it was located and returned to me. I could not have been more impressed.” 1
  • Jun 10, 2019: “We are just visiting this area and heard about the 'ski area' just out of town so thought we'd drive up and see how it was. My husband is from Jackson Hole so he wanted to see how big the runs were, lift sizes, vertical, etc. We were about the only one driving into the resort and sooo surprised that everything is closed up and no one stays up there during the Spring/Summer season. There were only a small amount of retail tenants open for business and all of the condos/homes looked vacant and closed up! The resort looks to have a great variety of runs, lifts, gondolas, etc. but it was just weird to not see anything open??? Maybe there is something we don't know about ownership up there! We were also surprised at how built out it, homes....everywhere! It must be a booming place in the Winter! It was worth the trip and we even saw some wildlife along the way...mostly deer!” 2
