Big White Opening Weekend (pictorial)

SNOWSEEKERS

Kelowna, BC – The chairlifts at Big White Ski Resort started turning in earnest this past weekend. With a solid 79cm base, Big White welcomed snowseekers from near and far with a beautiful day on the slopes and a  discount on lift tickets. We were so excited we sent Seekers team member, Nancy to Big White so we could scope it out. Check out her images from opening weekend below, which saw over 4,000 people ride the chairlifts and gondola.

The resort opened with three lifts running – Lara's Gondola, the Plaza Chair and the Ridge Rocket Express.

Riding the Ridge Rocket Express was like ascending into a snow globe.

After a morning of great turns, it's time to satisfy the appetite you've worked up. Check out this awesome burger from The Woods, which is located in the Big White Village.

The atmosphere in the village was great. Everyone was stoked to be out on the slopes, especially on such a bluebird day.

With lots of snow to be found on the slopes, we'd say it's shaping up to be a stellar season at Big White. Stay tuned to SnowSeekers for more coverage on Big White and many of your other favs.
