Big White, British Columbia

Big White, British Columbia
The Okanagan Valley is home to one of the world’s best and biggest snowboarding/ski resorts. The mountain actually features a $4 million dollar TELUS Terrain Park that experienced riders beg to ride. To further highlight the mountain we will go over some key features to the mountain.

Secret Mountain
Unfortunately before our website, there has not really been too many solid reviews on where the best mountains are. Thankfully, we are passionate about snowboarding and skiing and are always looking for new horizons. To be sure, after visiting Big White, it is puzzling that this mountain does not get the exposure it deserves. On the other hand, that actually adds to the quiet and open free landscape. It could be a bit overshadowed by the close by Whistler Blackcomb, but the mountain itself is actually an equal freeriding paradise.

What To Expect
The mountain is covered with beautiful powdery snow and also features an abundance of forestry throughout the runs. If you are the type of rider that enjoys small lifts here and there throughout your run, then this is the mountain for you. In addition, if you like big air, then be sure to check out the terrain park (bring a helmet). Unlike the ever so popular Whistler Blackcomb, you can expect less crowded lift line-ups and more open terrain for riding. The max elevation is 2319 meters and if you happen to stay at the resort, you can ski-in/snowboard-into runs.

Kelowna, BC
The beautiful city of Kelowna is also only a 40-minute drive away. There you will find a peaceful and friendly city that is filled with British Columbia’s beautiful maritime weather and mountainous terrain. Not to mention, the city features some of the best food in the province and actually has a pretty neat little downtown.
