  • Jan 18, 2020: “Big White is a fabulous place, even for non-skiers like us. We stayed at the resort for a week after Christmas with friends who are skiers and snow-boarders. We had plenty to do. My husband took a few alpine ski lessons, we both took a nordic ski lesson, and we snow-shoed several times. The tube park was great fun for adults and kids.There's also ice-skating, an ice tower (for climbing) and other winter activities. There are a number of restaurants and shops -- something for everyone. We also really appreciated the small grocery store and liquor stores that are at the resort, as we were able to make some meals in our room instead of going out to eat every meal. The resort is very family friendly, and dog-friendly, too! We were impressed with the programs that they have for kids and how well all the instructors interacted with them. The staff is really nice. We got the sense that everyone who works there loves it and wants to make sure the guests love it, too. My one piece of advice would be to plan ahead and reserve ahead. If you don't, you may not be able to do everything that you want to. For example, we really wanted to take the horse-drawn carriage into the woods for brunch, but that was fully booked by the time we called to make a reservation (about a week before we went.) I wasn't able to make any spa appointments while there because I waited until I got there to try. And if you want to have the opportunity to eat at the spectacular 6 Degrees, you'll definitely want to reserve a table ahead of time. (We had a tasting dinner there one night and it was fantastic!) Other than wishing I had planned a few activities ahead of time, I wouldn't change a thing about our week at Big White. It was just about perfect.” 0
  • Jan 16, 2020: “Big White offers an extraordinary choice of runs - groomers, trees, steep and deep plus a menacing bowl. It’s a true Canadian ski town. There’s little dazzle, shopping is very much for skiers, boarders and climbers. ” 1
  • Jan 6, 2020: “Great montano but over-subscribed. This means it is really busy especially in peak season. The resort has a lot of beds. So weekends & holidays are crazy. There is some good skiing to be had if you don’t mind crowds and long lift lines” 2
