Next weekend marks the official opening of Big White Ski Resort on Dec. 1, but the mountain resort is opening two days earlier on Thursday, Nov. 29. This week Big White Ski Resort will open the Ridge Rocket High-Speed Quad Chair, The Plaza Quad Chair, and Lara’s Gondola starting at 8:45am on Thursday. This is great news for Okanagan’s largest mountain resort. With the news of direct flights from L.A to Kelowna, Big White Ski Resort is hoping for a fantastic year to celebrate its 50th anniversary by timing it with the increased accessibility of direct flights from L.A to Kelowna for Australians.

Village at Big White Ski ResortWith nearly all our available accommodation rentals sold out for the Christmas and New Year’s season, it’s looking like Big White may have one of its busiest years ever. The attraction to Big White is simply because of its fantastic champagne powder like snow conditions. Unlike the BC coastal mountain ranges, such as Whistler, the snow conditions at Big White Ski Resort is typically drier and more powder like with less moisture in the air. As some locals call it, Big White Ski Resort is known for its champagne powder snow that makes your day of skiing or boarding that much more enjoyable.

Weather and snow conditions permitting, Big White Ski Resort is planning to open on Dec. 1 to full operations with the additional run openings of Black Forest and Bullet chair lifts. For the first two days, lift tickets will be sold at 50% before the mountain is operating at full capacity.
