Horse Drawn Sleigh Dining Tours

For a culinary experience unlike any other, climb aboard an old fashioned horse drawn sleigh for an experience guests won’t forget. Admire Big White’s pristine beauty as the majestic Clydesdale horses guide the sleigh through snow covered forest to the cozy cabin in the woods.



Snowcat for TELUS Park

Big White's TELUS Park - named one of the best terrain parks in North America by USA Today - is set to become even better over the 16/17 season with the purchase of a brand-new Kässbohrer Park Plus Snowcat. This Snowcat is specifically designed for grooming in the terrain park, with extra lift on the tiller and extra functionality on the blade making it ideal for building jumps and features in the terrain park. The resort now has a total of eight frontline Snowcats working across the mountain.



Clock Tower Coffee Co.

The Clocktower Coffee Co. offers the best in expertly roasted, organic fair trade espresso and coffee drinks, fresh smoothies and comfort food prepared from scratch daily. Come and see us for gourmet sandwiches, fresh pastries and our own house-made ice cream sandwiches. Located in the Village Center Mall.



Big White's Award Winning Kids' Centre Expands

Plans are underway to expand our award-winning Kids' Centre into the area that was formally the Loose Moose Emporium. This addition will provide our youngest skiers aged 3-4 with much-needed room to play and prepare for the start of lessons. Children 5-7 years of age will also now have their own area in the Kids' Centre. Traffic flow will be greatly enhanced, allowing for new exits onto the snow for children in lessons and less congestion for parents when registering their children.

TELUS Expansion of 4G LTE Network Coverage

TELUS has invested $100,000 to bring the world’s most advanced and fastest wireless technology to customers in Big White, B.C. This expansion of TELUS’ 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network coverage means that even more residents and visitors can experience dramatically faster downloads when surfing the web, reading emails or sharing photos on social networking sites.



Wintersteiger Ski Tuning Machine

Purchase of a Wintersteiger Mercury Ski Tuning machine. This state-of-the-art $300,000 robot is the only one of its kind in the Okanagan Valley. Specialty skis require precision maintenance. Today's equipment has specific tolerances, including edge bevels, base structures and edge finishes that are designed to increase the performance and rideability of our guest’s equipment. Learning to ski will come easier to our customers due to a consistent precision tuning of Big White’s rental fleet.
