About Big White Mountain Resort

Big White Trail Map

Explore the fully ski in/ski out village at Big White Ski Resort. Enjoy the convenience of Main Street doubling as a ski run. Big White offers ski to your doorstep accessibility throughout the village and at many of the major hotels and condo complexes. Over the past several years, the village at Big White has grown to include a large variety of shops, restaurants, local pubs and après ski entertainment while the accommodations have also expanded now offering hotels, premium townhomes, rental condos, private ski chalets and luxury log cabins making up over 15,000 on-mountain beds.

The latest addition to Big White is the Snow Ghost Express, a state-of-the-art six-passenger chairlift. Named after the legendary snow covered trees that decorate the mountain, this is currently the longest six passenger lift in Canada, carrying skiers 6,190 feet in under six minutes. This new lift combined with the current Ridge Rocket Express can now carry up to 5,400 skiers an hour to the most popular terrain on the mountain. This means less time spent in line ups and more time enjoying that beautiful champagne powder that the Okanagan is so famous for.

Known as one of the best family ski resorts in North America, when the lifts close your Big White experience may be just starting. No trip would be complete without a stop by the Mega Snow Coaster, North America’s largest tube park. Adults and children alike can enjoy the thrill of sliding down these high speed, groomed lanes. Don’t worry about tiring yourself out climbing back up, as there is a custom lift in place just for the tube park patrons.

Children also enjoy the mini-snowmobile rides or skating on the huge outdoor rink. Your family can meet other travellers while sitting around the open-air fire pits at the “Taste of Big White”. When it is time to relax try a soothing massage at one of the resort spas, or browse for the perfect gift in one of the retail shops.

Located 45 minutes drive southeast of Kelowna, BC – Big White Ski Resort makes an excellent destination for skiers, snowboarders or anyone looking for the perfect alpine vacation experience.
