Ours is one of the most desirable units in Big White. It is complete ski in ski out and, in fact, adjacent to the access. It is at the end of the row ensuring greater privacy and quiet, especially in the hot tub on our deck overlooking the Monashee Mountains. Not only the deck but also the living areas have a stupendous view across the valley to the mountains. In addition to all of that Trapper's Crossing is situated opposite the Village Centre where the Kids' Centre, the main lodge (tickets and rentals), the grocery and liquor store, restaurants and Lara's gondola (free) down to Happy Valley are all located. In Happy Valley there is another lodge, the skating rink, the ice climbing towe, inner tubing and access to the cross country skiing area. Park your car in our secure garage area and forget it. Everything is in walking and skiing distance even for small children.

My name is Vivien and I welcome you to Big White. I have skied with my family since the children were small and first visited Big White several years ago. We discovered it was a wonderful ski resort for familes with miles of terrain to suit everybody.
We love the spring skiing at Big White - lots of sunshine, wonderful spring snow and long days. It is also wonderful to be able to come home, fix lunch, have a siesta and go out on the mountain again. We love to cross country ski too and there are such great trails also reachable from our home by ski.
If you drive to Big White you can park in the garage underneath the building and if you come by shuttle you will not miss your vehicle as everything is reachable by foot, or gondola.
At Big White there is everything you need other than a lot of nightlife. There is always a great meal at one of the really good restaurants within walking distance or preparing a tasty meal in our superbly equipped kitchen, relaxing in our fantastic hot tub and playing a game or watching a movie in our cosy living room.
