If you’re shopping for groceries before coming up to Big White Ski Resort, here’s a hot tip: don’t buy any bottled water. You might think that it’s a good idea to stock up on clean water before you get here, but what many people don’t realize is that Big White’s tap water is some of the cleanest and freshest available in the world – just as good, if not better, than what you’d find in any supermarket.
It goes without saying that in most remote communities, the ability to stay connected to the outside world can be a little frustrating. At Big White Ski Resort, this is not the case. Sure, lots of guests come to unplug, enjoy nature and escape their realities while at the resort – but, for those who are looking to still post that selfie, email their coworker, order take-out, pay bills, watch a movie – Big White’s got your back.
Who doesn’t love a stroll through the forest? Hearing the birds chirp, watching the squirrels jump between trees, feeling the breeze as it whistles through the leaves. Now, imagine, during that stroll, instead of stumbling across a patch of wildflowers, you stumble into a pile of trash.
Summer time is just so much better when you can spend it with the ones you love – including your four-legged family members! At Big White Ski Resort, we love seeing your pooches hitching rides on the chairlift, wagging their tails in the Village and sniffing flowers in the alpine meadows – but, there are a few basic rules and tips to keep everyone, including your pet, happy, healthy and safe while traversing the mountain.
We know Big White is the best – how could we not? An average of 750cm of dry, fluffy Okanagan Champagne Powder in the Winter and fields upon fields of alpine wildflowers in the Summer? Sounds pretty epic to us... and, guess what, the rest of Kelowna seems to think we’re the best, too!
Big White would like to congratulate Kelowna-based coffee roaster, Tug 6, on taking home two gold awards at the Hopwired Festival that took place in Vancouver in late February. Tug 6 won "Best Espresso" for its Beach Cruiser Espresso, and “Best Coffee” for its Ethiopian blend.
