Tips for the Road

Please beware of wildlife on the road! Cows and deer are regularly spotted on Big White road during the summer; be sure to also keep an eye out for elk, moose and bears.

Speed limits are for dry conditions. Weather in the alpine can change quickly to become wet or even snowy. Keep in mind that it can take about three times as long, or as far, to stop in wet conditions than it does on dry pavement. Keep at least three times normal distance between you and the car in front.

Be extra cautious in danger zones: intersections, lane changes, turns, stops.

Be sure to have a full tank of gas before coming up to the mountain. There is no petrol available at Big White. The last petrol station before Big White is located on Highway 33 in Black Mountain.

For up-to-date highway conditions, please see the BC Highways Ministry road report.
