  • Tons of terrain, and not crowded. Very much a family oriented mountain. Ski school is awesome if you are considering lessons. Improved my wife's confidence and skills significantly in 3 days. Very impressed with our experience and will most definitely be back
  • Excellent resort. The runs are nice and long and there are many sides of the mountain you can traverse. Trails are well marked, and they offer alot of green runs for beginners. The view is great, however the mountain views aren't nearly as 'in your face' as 'the big 3' in Alberta (which really add another layer to the experience). But I was here to board and that we did and had a blast! You won't get hungry out there as each time you come down the slopes into the village there are lots of options to refresh. We stayed at the Big White Inn which was a great stay, very friendly. Rooms had a mini table top stove appliance and cookware which was so convenient if you don't always want to eat out. Also great that you can basically ski/board up very close to the hotel so you can stop in to grab a snack and quickly recharge. Outdoor heated pool and the hot tub were definitely appreciated. The only negative was that the hot tub was closed the first night which was a real downer but no stars knocked off as this sort of thing happens - maintenance.
  • So amazing. Dont think I could possibly ever go back to Whistler having spent a few days here. The place is custom engineered to cater to families and young kids. The village is great. Getting around is a piece of cake, rental and ski school amenities were a pleasure to use. Customer service every where we went was spectacular.
  • Had such a good time here. The staff were all friendly and the automatic gates worked well. The snow was amazing and the terrain was great. I will be returning for sure. They have lots of stuff to offer besides skiing. Ice climbing, ice skating, tubing etc. Fire pits with beers.
  • This was our first visit to Big White Ski Resort and we certainly had an amazing time. We cannot speak highly enough of the professional service that we experienced during our entire stay. Excellent location, facilities, staff members and great snow quality. We will definitely be returning.
