  • Sep 17, 2018: “From December to March our family thoroughly enjoys what we believe is a very affordable pastime! Whatbalways amazing me is how much the kids want to hang with us verses taking off with there friends. This Is a beautiful multi activity resort for all ages!” 0
  • Sep 3, 2018: “Our family has gone to Big White on many occasions. This year we had our 5 year old and 3 year old starting to ski. The resort has a great bunny hill and lots of easy green runs for them to learn on. The only downside to this resort is the fact they do not a family season pass. Considering they sell themselves as “Canada’s Best Family Resort”, I find it unusual that they do not offer this. The lines for the lifts are typically short (less than 3min) but on long weekends they can be unbearable (>30min). ” 1
  • Jul 28, 2018: “We took Bullet chairlift to top and then ventured up to the peak of Big White. All the trails were well-signed. Make sure you wear good shoes/boots as this is not flat terrain. The views are spectacular. Due to wildfires, there was a bit of a haze but not enough to reduce the experience. As we moved over to the Jamieson Loop we came across an attendant (Kai) at a trail junction. He was very informative and great to talk to. He really knew the area and the sites and the flora/fauna. He lives in area and loves it. Great ambassador to the area. We went back into village after being up the mountain for quite a long time. The weather on the hill was perfect (about 25c with a slight breeze). The festivities in the village livened things up for what is essentially the off-season. Interesting to see things without the snow. We stayed for a refreshment and meal and headed back to Kelowna. Well worth the trip. The lift was $15 each for a one time trip (up and down). Lifts are equipped for bikes and they appear to be adding even more trails but what they have already appear well built and lots of variety. I think you have to pay for bike park and then for lift if you plan to go biking on hill. Great summer activity and so close to Kelowna.” 2
