Big White Ski Resort is excited to announce that the Falcon Chair will now run daily, from 9:00am – 3:15pm, for the rest of the season.
Historically, the Falcon Chair has only run on Saturdays and Sundays, or daily during holiday periods. This will be the first time in ten years that the double-seater chair has operated on a daily basis.
The Falcon Chair has a rich history – it was originally put in as the Ridge Chair in 1970, and replaced with the current Ridge Chair in 1989. In 1992, the Mountain Operations team put the double-seater in its current position and renamed it the Falcon Chair.
“The Falcon Chair opens up some incredible mountain terrain, including Okanagan Champagne powder stashes, glades and groomed runs,” said Michael J. Ballingall, Senior Vice President at Big White Ski Resort. “As skier visits increase, so does the demand for more challenging terrain. We’re very happy to now offer access to this area on a daily basis throughout the season.”
Big White is currently sitting at an alpine snow base of 160cm. After a week of beautiful bluebird days, snow is in the forecast for next week, starting on Monday night.
