  • Feb 18, 2020: “We’ve been there on Sunday, Family Day long weekend. It was super busy! The resort is really pretty and has a nice atmosphere. My husband went skiing and I registered for a snowboarding lesson. The lesson could have been better, I saw people with other teachers having more fun and having more progress, but my instructor was a nice person. The lesson is the average price, but the lift ticket is very expensive comparing to other ski resorts. Overall we had a good time.” 0
  • Feb 14, 2020: “after 35yrs of skiing, yesterday at Big white was my first time there and will be my last. The only part of the mountain that had any visability was closed as the chair lift was not working due to what seemed to be a light breeze. From the village up the visability was down to a few meters . My worst skiing experience ever.” 1
  • Feb 13, 2020: “I must admit my expectations for Big White were fairly average based on it's reputation for low visibility and Big White-out pseudonym. We had 10 days of skiing in the best snow I've had the pleasure skiing, at the begining of Feb 2020. Yes, we did have misty, blustery, cold conditions on the top slopes for probably half of our holiday, but only one afternoon when freezing fog forced us to stop early as our goggles kept freezing up and visibility dropped to probably 3 metres on the top half of the runs. The slopes were very quiet, even on a powder Saturday when the lucky locals came out to play. Eating out was fairly average in general, but fairly priced and generous helpings. We found most of the on mountain staff to be non Canadian, with many Australian accents to be heard. I highly recommend Big White for those skiers wanting to experience powder for their first time and for family fun. Would I go back, most definitely!” 2
