Phenomenal tree skiing and riding-deep and steep.
Whitewater Winter Resort is nestled in the legendary Selkirk Mountains, just 25km from Nelson, BC
At Fernie Alpine you'll find some of the steepest terrain you'll ever see in-bounds, and what's out-of-bounds is free for the taking too.
Big White is BC's second-largest ski resort with a totally ski-in/ski-out village. With the addition of TELUS Park and the TELUS Park chairlift, 6 new runs in the Gem Lake and the Cliff Chair last season, Big White offers 7,355 acres (3,052 hectares) of terrain for every type of skier or snowboarder. The growth hasn't stopped, as the resort is building a 66 million gallon reservoir, to be called Lake Paul. This will provide water for the resort as well as snow-making for TELUS Park. There has been extensive grooming over the summer, so more runs can open earlier in the season. The village is also getting bigger and better, with the Big White Mountain Mart quadrupling in size, to include a 60 seat deli. As well the revamped kids centre will offer new daycare services, accommodation is expanding with 1,000 new beds and Carver's Restauarant is opening in the village this season.
Big White averages 24.5 feet (7.5 metres) per year of fresh champagne powder. Local's call it "Hero Snow" because it makes you look so good!! The mountain's amazing 2,765 acres of skiable terrain make it the second biggest mountain in British Columbia. Big White's abundant snowfall, mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine make it an ideal place for skiers of any level. Every night after the lifts close, our expert grooming team set out to deliver velvety swales of corduroy for your skiing pleasure. Big White was awarded "Best Grooming in the West" by Ski Canada Magazine.
