Green Beer, Leprechauns & More St. Paddy’s Day Fun at Big White

Posted On: March 11, 2019 |
All ye hooligans, rejoice! St. Patrick’s Day is here again, and that means green pints and shamrocks galore – plus plenty of good Irish fun for the whole family. We’ve put together a list of all of the shenanigans at the resort to help you celebrate this lucky day. You dig?

Oh! And don’t forget to wear green out there on the slopes, unless ye fancy a pinch!

Leprechaun Photo-Op
11:00 am
The Village

Strike a pose, take a photo and get some lucky gold coins! Our very own leprechaun will be hanging out in the Village on St. Patrick’s Day morning. Don’t miss out on getting proof of this little guys’ rare appearance!


St Pawtricks Day Adoption Event
11:00 am - 2:00 pm 
Outside Happy Valley Day Lodge

Paws it Forward Dog Rescue will be setting up outside the Happy Valley Day Lodge for you to try your luck at getting free puppy kisses for life! If you already have a fur baby, make sure you pick up a Pet Pass from Tickets in the Village Centre Mall. All proceeds go to Paws it Forward. Dogs available for adoption will be at the event. However, you will have to fill out an application and go through the process before you can take one home. Maybe some of these pawsitively adorable pets will just get lucky and find their furever homes!
