Activities

Big White is famous for keeping you entertained on and off the slopes with options to suit every family member. If you’re not a skier try the thrill of the slopes in the comfort of a personal Snow Limo. Unwind at the spa, stroll through the village, snowshoe in the back country, or take a horse-drawn sleigh ride.

Spend quality time with the kids tubing at the Mega Snow Coaster, and exploring carnival night together. After a busy day, relax by the bonfire with a steaming cup of hot chocolate.

Big White maintains Canada’s largest outdoor alpine skating rink and operates snowmobiling and dog sled tours through the mountains. With different activities planned every night of the week, the possibilities are endless!
