A homespun community and a proposed expansion could make Big White the next smart buy.
A winter weekend at Big White resembles a multicultural block party. The snow is cold and bone dry at British Columbia’s second-largest ski resort, and a warm community spirit flows—aided, no doubt, by the ample supply of Okanagan Valley wines and Canadian beers. When the lifts close at Big White, the welcome mats roll out. Stroll through almost any neighborhood, and you’ll likely find a family hosting dinner for neighbors or an all-comers poker game.
