If you're after fantastic snow, don't look any further than Big White! ''It's the snow'' is our motto and we live up to our name with an average 750cm (24.5ft) of Okanagan Champagne Powder falling annually. Our bountiful, dry powder is legendary and was awarded ''Best Powder'' by Ski Canada Magazine in 2008!
Located in the picturesque Okanagan Valley, Big White is uniquely blessed with sunny weather, dry powder and a mild average temperature of -5C (23 F). With 118 market runs
    fanning from the summit, 2,765 acres of skiable terrain, and 16 lifts, there's a great selection of terrain for everyone with deep powder bowls, wide-open glades, and great fall-line cruising.
For the ultimate park experience, head to our award winning TELUS
Terrain Park which is the best progressive park in North America. To top it off, slalom through the spectacular''Snowghosts'' (snow caked trees) which create a magical backdrop in our winter playground.

hotel suite. Whatever you're after, we have the makings for a memorable vacation.
You may be coming to Big White simply for the skiing and snowboarding, but you'll soon discover you can experience a true Canadian adventure. You can explore snow covered hills by snowmobile, trek through the backcountry on cross country skis and snowshoes, sleigh ride through the wilderness or mush behind a husky. As BC's premier family destination, we have a great range of events and activities for the entire family including night skiing, snow tubing, ice skating, mini z's, fireworks and carnival nights just to name a few...
