  • 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.” 0
  • 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!” 1
  • May 13, 2019: “This past March my friend and our sons spent 5 days skiing at Big White.. We choose Big White because of the great selection of intermediate runs and the on hill ski in/out accommodations. Much better then silver star and sun peaks.The skiing was great and the on hill Air B &B accommodation made our stay much more cost effective as we came back to the chalet for lunch on most days. The lovely village feeling was unexpected surprise. While the grocery store in town has everything you need it is about twice the price of buying your food in Kelowna. Pick up a Biggie pass before you head up to Big White as it too can save you a few bucks The concern of white out conditions at the top of the mountain never materialized. The 4" off fresh powder one morning was a great bonus” 2
