Australia's most popular morning show, the TODAY Show on channel 9, was at Big White Ski Resort Tuesday, December 18 as part of a five-resort tour of B.C. The show's weather host, Stevie Jacobs, did six live hits from different locations around the mountain, including Dizzy's, Clocktower Coffee and from inside a hot tub! Jacobs, who felt at home with all of our Australian employees, learned what a "toque" was, took a snowmobile tour, and tried Kettle Valley Steakhouse's famous Tomahawk steak!
