I just want to reach out and say thank you to all our staff this season. It doesn’t matter whether you were de-icing lifts or pouring coffees, you helped Big White get through its most complicated and toughest season ever. The effort that everyone has made to keep the resort safe and running has been monumental. You did it and we got there. Thank you.
Big White Ski Resort Ltd has made the difficult decision to close for the season on Monday, April 5 at 4pm, six days earlier than the scheduled date of April 11, to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and the recent surge in P.1 variant cases in British Columbia.
Mr. Peter Schumann (photo), on behalf of Big White Ski Resort Ltd, made a presentation today of $5,000 to the Big White Mountain Early Learning Centre to assist the non-profit organization in purchasing supplies, materials and to support the early child educator’s salary.
Over the next three weekends of the TELUS Snowcross Challenge, and up until April 1, Big White Ski Resort is asking you – our guests, residents and partners – to consider donating to the Central Okanagan Food Bank. For every dollar donated, we will match it up to $15,000. All of that money will go directly to the COFB's Nutritional Improvement Program, which provides seasonal produce, meat, dairy and eggs, as well as children's snack packs to local families in need.
Now a year into this pandemic, we know all too well how tied to our computers, cellphones, and desks we need to be to keep things running smoothly, and we know those vacations to sunny beaches and exotic locations have been put on hold. Our fingers are stiff from typing, our eyes are sore from staring at the computer, our vacation days are racking up, and, to be honest, we’re just kind of tired of always making sure we look presentable in our Zoom meetings.
We have such amazing guests here at Big White Ski Resort, so when we hit our 200cm Alpine Base, we wanted to celebrate by sharing some of our favourite photos of the season. Thank you for voting, and helping us nail down the top 10!
As the sun rises over the mountain, and in light of yesterday’s announcement from the Provincial Health Officer, it’s locals only for another month at Big White Ski Resort. Big White Central Reservations Ltd will be calling and cancelling all bookings from non-local customers until midnight February 5.
When Big White Ski Resort was formed by two ski-loving friends in 1963, it began with big dreams – and those dreams are nowhere near being fulfilled. For decades, Cliff Serwa and Doug Mervyn, the Schumann family, and now the Plimmer family, have designed and developed and dreamed looking decades ahead.
