While all of us at Big White Ski Resort know just how great our mountain is, according to Snowpak, experts in the business think it’s great, too! In a recent article on the “11 Best Canada Ski Resorts” Big White was named as number three, coming third to Whistler Blackcomb (2nd) and Lake Louise (1st).
Big White was lauded for its Okanagan Champagne Powder, for having the largest ski-in, ski-out Village in Canada, the largest night skiing area in Western Canada, and for its proximity to Kelowna.
“At Big White Ski Resort, we pride ourselves on being part of an amazing adventure tourism industry,” says Michael J. Ballingall, Senior Vice President at Big White Ski Resort Ltd. “When the World comes to your backyard to experience the World’s greatest and most abundant snow, you’re in the company of those that are always striving to raise the bar. We are proud to be on the podium with the World’s greatest Ski Resort brands.”
Snowpak cited crowding as a con of the resort, but with the second largest lift capacity in all of Canada, Big White can actually shuttle around 29,000 skiers and boarders up the mountain to access the nearly 2,800 acres of patrolled terrain in just one hour. “We invest in technology so our guests need not stand in line. After all, we are here to carve the Okanagan Champagne Powder!” Ballingall says.
Calling Big White a “powder paradise,” the article mentions Big White’s endless glades and deep freshies. It also includes a list of Big White’s many adventure activities and its $12 Friday Nights. “With the convenience of a ski-in/ski-out village, it calls itself ‘Canada’s Favorite Family Resort’ – and we’re not going to argue!” the article reads.
