Big White ski holidays are extremely child-friendly, and the diverse ski area receives lots of fluffy white powder.

Big White strives to be the world’s best family resort. The whole set-up aims to make your holiday as easy as possible, with kids’ clubs, crèches and après activities all provided. Alongside its family appeal, this is also a great resort for all abilities.

The snow is all-natural, and there’s plenty of it - Big White is an excellent place to try powder skiing for the first time. While the kids are having lessons, parents can enjoy the backcountry or ski everything from steeps to rolling cruisers.

The modern village has been designed for maximum convenience. Restaurants serve tasty food at sensible prices and Snowshoe Sam’s is our bar of choice, while Happy Valley Adventure Park offers everything from tubing and skating to an ice-climbing tower.

There’s more than enough to keep you busy in Big White, or you could explore further by adding Sun Peaks and Silver Star to an Okanagan Explorer Ski Safari.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Great terrain, though limited snow cover made the more interesting slopes difficult to use, due to exposed rocks etc. Apparently "I should have been here last year"! However, still plenty to keep me amused, and the ski lessons each morning during the Masters Week were very good - definitely helped my skiing! The resort centre is quite compact, with a good selection of bars and restaurants.

Big White resort is such a well thought out resort with all the properties enjoying ski in/ski out facilities.

Very nice ski area with varied terrain, unfortunately, a warmer spell had compacted the snow, with non groomed areas with marginal conditions, and very little off piste skiable including glades runs. Would definitely make a return visit.
