Our Top 5 Big White Winter Activities
There”s another page with details of the various events, but
These are our favourite things to see and do in Big White in the winter.
Some are well know, some not so well known. Have a look around as we’ve included photos, videos, information and links.
So in No Particular Order …….
1. Riding Through the Trees
Whatever your ability, riding through the trees is one of my favourite things at Big White. You can just skirt in a little or head right through. You can’t get lost as all ways lead down to another lift.
2. Free Hosting Service
Start your visit with the free Snow Hosting Service -a great way of getting an overview of the resort and how the different ski areas link together. Every day they meet at 10:30am in the middle of the village – worth arriving a little earlier if you’re part of a group who’d plan to stick together. It’s usually 4-6 in a group of similar ability with a pair of hosts – Big White Residents who are very proud of their resort and love showing it off to its best. They’ll even recommend restaurants etc. for your particular group.
3. Mega Snow Coaster Tubing Park
The largest tubing park in North America with 6 lanes – 3 fast, 3 slower. Take a ride to the top and then choose whether you’re going it alone or clubbing together. Spinning or just chuting down, maybe over some bumps – it’s all great fun. Then down at the bottom you’re often met by a warm campfire and even hot chocolate.
Every Saturday (weather permitting), there’s a lovely firework display. One of the best places to enjoy it is soaking in the hot tub with some fizz in your hand. It’s a ‘ringside’ seat!
Christmas and New Year have particularly special displays – one early for the kids, one later for the stay-ups.
5. The Globe & The Blarney Stone
Two great places for some warm hospitality.
“Come warm up in our two cosy spaces at Big White Ski Resort. Enjoy tea beside the fire…..or the best coffee on the mountain, a perfectly pulled Guinness or a boutique BC wine! We guarantee you laughter to cheer you and our staff will make you feel loved the minute you walk in the door. Globe, the original Spanish inspired Tapas Bar on our mountain, or The Blarney Stone Irish Tavern with good ol’ Irish hospitality…..whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll find great food, great drinks and great conversation…… and all your heart (and appetite) may desire!”
One of my favourites is the typical Canadian S’mores – for the uninitiated that’s …… homemade marshmallows dipped in chocolate fondue, sandwiched between crispy biscuits.
