Big summer plans for Big White

A new season has dawned at Big White

Big White Resort will now be open five days a week for their upcoming summer season, which is set to kick off June 28 and continue until Sept. 5.

The resort will now be open from Thursday through to Monday every week, with the Bullet Chair spinning daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Bike Big White – opening for its second season this year – will also be open on Friday nights for Extended Play until 7:30 p.m., so that bikers can exclusively enjoy the mountain in the longer daylight hours.

For the first time, Big White has also opened a range of summer accommodation available to book with Central Reservations. With options starting from $68 per night, including hotel rooms, townhouses and condos, Big White has positioned itself as the ultimate summer family-friendly getaway.

Campers will be happy with the addition of Big White Campgrounds. Located at Black Forest, this pet-friendly campground welcomes tents and RVs and includes all essential amenities, including washrooms, running water and picnic tables.

The resort has also added a range of activities to the summer to-do list, including the new free Kids Zone outside the White Crystal Inn. Set to be the perfect backyard games experience, it’ll also keep kids entertained with arts and crafts, such as rock painting, lantern making and pet bug making. Or try Big White Mountain Horseback Adventures, now running seven days a week and catering for everyone from first timers to expert riders.
