Now a year into this pandemic, we know all too well how tied to our computers, cellphones, and desks we need to be to keep things running smoothly, and we know those vacations to sunny beaches and exotic locations have been put on hold. Our fingers are stiff from typing, our eyes are sore from staring at the computer, our vacation days are racking up, and, to be honest, we’re just kind of tired of always making sure we look presentable in our Zoom meetings.
We have such amazing guests here at Big White Ski Resort, so when we hit our 200cm Alpine Base, we wanted to celebrate by sharing some of our favourite photos of the season. Thank you for voting, and helping us nail down the top 10!
As the sun rises over the mountain, and in light of yesterday’s announcement from the Provincial Health Officer, it’s locals only for another month at Big White Ski Resort. Big White Central Reservations Ltd will be calling and cancelling all bookings from non-local customers until midnight February 5.
When Big White Ski Resort was formed by two ski-loving friends in 1963, it began with big dreams – and those dreams are nowhere near being fulfilled. For decades, Cliff Serwa and Doug Mervyn, the Schumann family, and now the Plimmer family, have designed and developed and dreamed looking decades ahead.
Working from home? Why not work at your home away from home – and by work, we mean strap on a pair of planks and hit the slopes. Still in the office? Well, we’re not saying we promote “calling in sick,” but we aren’t not promoting it… (please, do not come up to the mountain if you are actually sick!). Retired? What’s your excuse?! Skiing and snowboarding midweek has many perks, and we’ve compiled a few to get you pumped about that Monday to Friday, 8:45am to 3:30pm ski lifestyle.
We're all in this together has never been more true, and we want to thank you. Thank you for being patient. Thank you for wearing a mask; for keeping your distance; for staying home if you feel sick; for respecting our team members, the community and all our guests that have visited the mountain so far this year. Without you, without your commitment to keeping the resort safe, we would be unable to stay open this season.
Have a few bottles lying around after a fun night with family and friends? Well, thanks to a brand new Return-It Express & GO recycling facility at Big White, you no longer have to trek all the way down to Kelowna to recycle all that plastic, glass and aluminum.
