Big White Ski Resort is pleased to donate $15,000 to the Central Okanagan Food Bank (COFB), matching the over $15,000 donated by skiers, snowboarders and Central Okanagan locals. Throughout the month of March, and in conjunction with the TELUS Snowcross Challenge, Big White coordinated a matching donation campaign, which ended up raising $38,650 for the COFB.
Time to put the skis and boards back in storage and bring out the bikes and paddleboards! There are many reasons why we love calling the Central Okanagan home, and the diversity of outdoor activities is just one of them – the beautiful backdrops, no matter the time of year, is another! Those jaw-dropping views have made their way into movie productions, commercials, and more – and last year, Bike Big White made its debut in a reality show competition for aspiring mountain bike professionals! Pinkbike Academy showcased our local mountain on the world stage through the streaming network Amazon Prime, and this year, it's coming back for more action!
