Snow is a go at Big White

The Big White Ski Resort slopes will be open to skiers on Thursday, Dec. 1, to kick off the 2011-12 ski season.

The lifts will be spinning at 8:45 a.m. with 50 per cent off lift tickets.

The Ridge Rocket, the Plaza, Lara’s gondola and the magic carpets will all be running with Easy Out, Highway 33, Easy Street, Hummingbird, Lower Perfection, Mogul Track, Serwa’s and Happy Valley Way runs open for skiing and snowboarding.

“With 22 centimetres of snow in the last seven days, the mountain is looking great,” said Blair Ireland, Big White director of guest services.

“The groomers are out, all the staff are trained and we’re ready to start spinning the lifts.

“We’re happy to be able to open the mountain a couple of days early and let everyone enjoy the great conditions.”
