Planning A Family Ski Vacation? 5 Reasons Why You Should Choose Big White Ski Resort

Located in the heart of super, natural British Columbia, Big White Ski Resort is Canada’s Favourite Family Resort, and was voted second best in Canada in the 2022 Conde Nast Traveller’s Reader's Choice Awards!

Big White is known for a few things: its short lift lines, its ski-in, ski-out village and its family friendly vibes. But, above all, at Big White, “it’s the snow.” While the reasons to visit Big White Ski Resort are endless, we nailed down our Top 5 to help you plan your Canadian ski holiday!

2023/2024 Season Pass Pricing ➤



1. Ski-In, Ski-Out – Everywhere!
Home to Canada’s largest totally ski-in, ski-out village, you can ski, snowboard or walk to nearly every restaurant, accommodation, and activity – making it super smooth to get around when you have kids in tow. And, seeing as it hosts Canada’s second largest lifting system, shuttling 28,700 skiers uphill every hour, you’ll spend more time on the slopes and less time waiting in line.

2. Epic Snow Conditions
Each winter, the resort sees an annual average snowfall of 750cm of what the locals refer to as “Okanagan Champagne Powder.” Due to the climate in the Okanagan, the snow that layers Big White is dry, light and oh so good – like a glass of crisp Okanagan bubbly. It’s also what’s responsible for Big White’s world-famous snow ghosts, the snow covered trees that dot the alpine and provide the perfect photo backdrop to make all your friends back home jealous.

From bunny hills to beginner greens, cruisy blues, steep blacks, moguled double blacks, powder gulches and glades, Big White Ski Resort has something for every level of skier and snowboarder. Plus, with a green run from every lift, families with different skill levels can still explore different areas of the mountain together.

3. Apres at Home with Private Hot Tubs
What better way to relax than soaking those sore ski muscles in your own private hot tub? Give the team at Big White Central Reservations a call or email, and have them find you the perfect home away from home during your stay. From condos to private chalets, Central Reservations has accommodation to suit every budget and style.

4. Arrive With Ease
Located just 55 minutes from the Kelowna International Airport – Canada’s 10th largest airport, with 45-minute direct flights from Vancouver – getting to Big White Ski Resort has never been easier. Once you arrive, rent a car or grab a ride on the Big White Central Reservations airport shuttle (must be booked in advance!), and enjoy the scenic drive through the mountains to your home away from home.

The resort is entirely walkable, so there’s no need for a car once you arrive. If you do rent a car, there are plenty of free parking options around the resort, as well as the inclusion of parking space in your accommodation package.

Stock up the kitchen with snacks and ingredients before you arrive with Vacation Food Services, and, if you’re in need of a top-up, there’s a Market in the Village and a shopping shuttle that visits Kelowna once a week.

5. On-Mountain, Off-Slope Fun!
With nearly 20 on-mountain restaurants, cafes, and food trucks at the resort, there are plenty of options for every palette and every budget. Craving sushi at 2,300 metres above sea level? Find Sasquatch Sushi in the Stonebridge Lodge. Have a hankering for Mexican? Cantina del Centro serves up delicious tacos and margaritas at the Inn at Big White, not to mention its unrivaled mountain views from the patio. Snowshoe Sam’s is renowned for its busy nightlight, live music and DJs, not to mention its delicious pub food. Fine dining can be found at The Woods, Black Diamond Bar & Grill, Six Degrees Bistro, and at the brand-new, on-mountain smokehouse: The Fourth Ace. For a full list of our on-mountain eateries, click here.

Looking for something to do after the lifts shut down or need to give the ski legs a break? Happy Valley, just a free, short ride from the Village on Lara’s Gondola, is home to an array of non-skiing activities. Grab a pair of rental skates from the Happy Valley Day Lodge and test out the ice at Canada’s Highest Elevation Skating Rink. Pick up a tube and whiz down one of the five lanes at the Tube Park. Take the family on an adventure of a lifetime with an iconic Canadian experience and whiz through the forest on a dog sled. Snowshoeing, cross country skiing, a packed events calendar – it’ll be tempting to spend your entire vacation exploring the non-skiing activities at the resort.
