LISTING ON BIGWHITE.COM
We are proud to work with Big White property owners to offer quality accommodations, friendly service and great value – attributes highlighted extensively on Big White Ski Resort’s website. Our website gives access to accommodation reservations online and supports digital imaging for superior marketing of every rental property in our portfolio.
Every year, the bigwhite.com website receives visitors from over 200 countries, who view over 10-million pages. All major resort advertisements lead to bigwhite.com, from our televised snow reports on GlobalTV in Alberta, to billboards in Ontario, ski shows in Australia, digital ads targeting ski families in Washington State, email campaigns to skiers in Hawaii, and our daily email snow report.
Big White Ski Resort also participates in joint marketing initiatives with Tourism Kelowna, Boundary Country, Destination BC and Destination Canada, ensuring we support the overall region, while also having input into how and where skiing and snowboarding is marketed. In all of those campaigns, bigwhite.com has a strong presence.
Big White Central Reservations also has the rights and authorizations to use Big White Ski Resort trademarked terms and phrases within our website and advertising efforts. It should be noted that not all property management organizations have this permission, which drastically limits their marketing capabilities, and if they're found to be in breach of trademark law, they will be issued a cease and desist.
Big White Central Reservations works hand in hand with Big White Ski Resort on all sales and marketing efforts, both on bigwhite.com and all other joint marketing initiatives.
RETURN GUEST MARKETING PROGRAM
The path of least resistance to securing new bookings is connecting with those who have already stayed with Central Reservations. Our return guest marketing program involves email campaigns that give return guests early options to book (ahead of the general public) which deliver 2x and 3x industry standard opening rates. This may also involve digital ad retargeting at key times throughout the year using display advertising, video advertising, etc. Big White Central Reservations fully understands the importance and value of return guests and due to our high standards and “going the extra mile” customer service commitment, our guest retention rate is second to none.
LISTING MANAGEMENT ON OTA'S (BOOKING.COM & EXPEDIA)
By having a presence on various OTAs, Big White Central Reservations is able to increase your online visibility and bring in more bookings. OTAs also have review sections, so future guests can see past guests' experiences at the units we represent. Expedia owns a number of online booking sites, such as Travelocity and Trivago, further increasing your visibility. Our professional and knowledgeable call centre team also checks and responds to all reviews on Trip Advisor and Google Reviews.
GROUND-LEVEL ACCESS TO MAJOR EVENTS
Throughout the winter months, and in non-COVID times, Big White Ski Resort hosts a variety of extremely well-attended events and activities for its guests and residents, from the Para World Cup, to Big Reds, the Big White Rally, Gold Medal Plates, Demo Days and more. In 2018, Big White hosted the Canadian Olympic Team athlete send off, as well as a Hallmark film crew for the production of "A Winter Princess." Event organizers turn to Central Reservations first to secure the accommodation they need. Big White typically steers large events away from holidays and busy periods, which means working with Central Reservations helps you earn rental revenue for more nights of the season.

Owning in Stonebridge for 15 years and skiing BW has been a major highlight in our lives. We have been equally pleased with the management provided by the incredibly friendly and service oriented staff at Central Reservations. When there on vacation, they make us feel as though we're guests in a 5 star hotel and have helped make renting our home much easier than we had ever expected.
We have rented our unit in the Eagles with Big White for 15 years. During that time we have been very happy with the rental of our unit. Graham and his crew in Owner Relations are helpful, efficient and great to deal with! The continuity they provide along with the knowledge of the market is unbeatable. Renting our unit with Big White Central Reservations allows us to enjoy our unit without any hassles.
We have had our property managed by Big White Owner Relations for the past few years and have found them to be a pleasure to deal with. All the staff are very friendly and go out of their way to assist with all of our requests. Big White Owner Relations is open and available all year round and respond promptly to all correspondence. The team also provide helpful suggestions on ways to improve the property to ensure that a exceptional patronage rate is achieved. Having our property listed through Big White Central Reservations ensures that it has a high profile which results in the property being booked more often and the process is seamless. In addition to this, there is a team of maintenance personnel on-hand to ensure that any issues that occur are dealt with promptly so that our guests enjoy the best experience possible. We thoroughly recommend having Big White Owner Relations to anybody looking for a rental property manager.
It is an absolute pleasure working with Graham and the BW Central Reservations team. They are super well organized and responsive in making certain our unit is rented for the dates we make available and that our unit is well maintained. The team communicates quickly and clearly and in a professional manner. Financial and tax reporting is clear, thorough and timely. I highly recommend working with the BW Central Reservations team.
Having completed two seasons under your management we would like to let you know how happy we are with the service you are providing. We currently own two properties and both have been under various managing agents since buying them over ten years ago. During this time the rental occupancy was very disappointing and the level of care taken by the agents was at times lacking. When Big White Central Reservations took over we were concerned that because of the size of your rent pool we may have received even less rentals but this has turned out to be the reverse. We are up about thirty percent on previous years and the care and attention we get from your staff is fantastic. Both properties are in excellent condition thanks to the regular inspections by your maintenance staff. We send to you and your staff a big thank you for the peace of mind you have given us particularly as we are long distance landlords.
I am the owner of units 105 and 110 at the White Crystal Inn at Big White, having acquired the first unit in 2012. My main business since 2002 has been investment/rental real estate in BC and Alberta, which I have always self-managed. I was nervous when I first entrusted my strata units to Big White's property management team. However, I was to be very pleasantly surprised. Graham Sullivan and his team do an amazing, efficient and professional job of managing my units and I am completely satisfied. They are friendly, helpful and pleasant to deal with and prompt in their communications. I spoke with Graham prior to purchasing and he was happy to chat with me and tell me a little about the White Crystal Inn. Since then I have had dealings with various other members of the team and they are all first rate and customer focused. The hotel is well managed and staff are well chosen. The revenue I receive is excellent and I am very happy to pay the fair commission charged for the caliber of service provided. I am well aware of the effort, commitment, dedication and expense involved in effectively managing these properties. My strata units are truly hands-off investments, enabling me to sit back and relax in the knowledge that they are in good hands. I am very particular and would highly recommend them.
