Big White Ski Resort is truly a magical place – made even more magical by the people who ski, snowboard, stay and play throughout the year. In this blog, we'll share the stories of people who have fallen in love with one another, who have been proposed to and who have said "I Do" at the resort.
Big White Ski Resort is known in North America for its easy ski-in, ski-out access to restaurants, bars, accommodations, and pretty well everything else on the resort – in Canada, it’s the Largest Totally Ski-In, Ski-Out Resort Village! – and now, it’s known worldwide.
"It is more blessed to give than to receive.” That’s what Big White resident Wayne Lyseng says of his 20 years volunteering with Big White’s Community Policing Office. “The community has been very good for us, and to us.”
Whether you’re looking to enjoy an Okanagan red by the fire, sip on a craft beer in your hot tub, or mix up a cocktail with locally distilled spirits for your friends, the Big White Beer & Wine Store is a one-stop shop for all your alcohol needs. Located in the lower level of the Village Centre Mall, the Beer & Wine Store boasts an impressive selection of Okanagan-made wines, brews and spirits – not to mention favourites from beyond BC.
You don’t need to spend your life savings on a bottle of wine to enjoy the flavours of the Okanagan! The Big White Beer & Wine Store has curated a list of 20 bottles of red, white and sparkling wine under $20 that will not disappoint – and won’t break the bank!
Elaborate timber details, high ceilings and 270 degree views of Big White beauty – it’s no surprise that the new Snowpeaks Lodge at Big White Ski Resort is an award-winning home. The family ski chalet is a finalist in five Okanagan Housing Awards of Excellence categories, and was named twice in one category.
In just one week, Big White Ski Resort nabbed three honours: the Tourism Industry Association of Canada’s 2019 Pursuit Attraction & Adventure Award, Snowpak’s Best Ski Resort in the Okanagan and top three in Canada, plus a World Ski and Snowboard for “Canada’s Best Ski Chalet.”
After winning a prestigious national tourism award and being named best ski resort in the Okanagan last week, Big White Ski Resort has another reason to celebrate. Local chalet, Crescendo, was voted “Canada’s Best Ski Chalet” at the 7th Annual World Ski Awards in Kitzbühel, Austria this past Saturday.
