A message from Josh Foster • Director of Snow Sports
"On behalf of the staff, management and the community of Big White it’s my pleasure to welcome you, your family and friends. We’re glad that you’ve chosen to visit us and spend some time on our Mountain. As you’ll see there’s a multitude of experiences for you to enjoy. From white tablecloth 5 star dining to a juicy burger and crispy fries, a tummy warming hot chocolate to an apres ski cold beer. The thrill of climbing a tower of ice to quietly gliding across it on Canada’s highest outdoor skating rink as the sun sets over the Monashee Mountain Range. After spending the day on the mountain skiing and riding on our world famous Okanagan Champagne Powder make the most of all the resort has to offer when the lifts close, there’s something happening every night. Activities built for family fun, a soothing and revitalizing massage, a romantic dinner for two or dancing on the tables, whatever it is you’re after we’re sure that you’ll find it here"!
