Big White is the highest ski resort in the Okanogan region of BC. It has the biggest village and the most lift capacity of them as well. This is a very well-rounded winter resort. There is something here for every skier, snowboarder, or winter enthusiast in general.

The boundaries of the ski area lie on the south and west faces of Big White Mountain. The snowpack is consistent and usually dry on a powder day. The best area to be on those days is in the alpine, which is accessed by three short, steep chairs and a T-bar.

The middle parts of the mountain are serviced by high speed lifts that cover a lot of intermediate area. There is an extra effort put in for families here, with a scavenger hunt and other such features to entertain kids on the runs.

The lower part of Big White consists of the village, beginner area, and the park. This whole area is lit up for night skiing. There is a gondola and a quad that take you right through different parts of the village, which is unique for BC.

Big White is a very impressive ski resort development. With a high point of 2319 meters and low point of 1508 meters, it's one of the highest places to ski or board in BC.

This big mountain rarely disappoints, unless of course you trash your gear on some early season rocks. The upper parts of the mountain are gnarly, with steep chutes everywhere off the top ridges that throw you out into wide open bowls. Once you get out of the alpine you will find decent tree skiing, quite a few groomers and a lengthy cat track that can have some fun features off the edges. The ba... [ Read More ]
Hemlock Valley Resort is located in the Fraser Valley, close to Chilliwack, Mission and Abbotsford. The road up is gnarly but once you make it to the lodge it's a nice little area. Four lifts service the ski area which is 121 hectares with a 400m vertical drop. [ Read More ]
