Route planner Big White

Access Big White & on-site parking

The Big White ski resort is located in British Columbia between Vancouver and Calgary. It is 56 km away from Kelowna, the largest city in the Okanagan Valley. Access to Big White is generally via Kelowna. From there, you take a well-built road to the ski resort. You can also access Big White from the south (US border) by traveling via Highway 3 and the village of Rock Creek. However, the road leads through 100 km of mountainous terrain and there are no gas stations. On the weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday), buses travel from Kelowna directly to Big White.
