Join us on Canada’s highest ice skating rink for a skate with Santa Claus. Santa loves to unwind at Big White before setting off for his adventures around the world. He can usually be found in his workshop in the Village from December 19- 24. Be sure to drop by to find out if you are on the naughty or nice list this year.
This is the perfect chance to challenge Santa to a game of hockey, take a selfie with the big man in red or deliver your Christmas wish list in person. 
Warm up with FREE Hot Chocolate at the Ice Rink Bonfire from 5:00pm.
Skating at Big White is FREE! If you require skate rentals these can be found on the bottom floor of Happy Valley Day Lodge, based on availability. More information and pricing can be found here.

For more information about Santa's visits to Big White please contact the Concierge Desk by emailing or call 250.491.6111.
