Apr 8, 2022: “POSITIVES:
Fantastic views and a great vibe…very family oriented, Aussie’s everywhere…a village atmosphere without the snobby types or those Corp cookie cutter stores/restaurants you see in other places.
Lifts are decent but they do not have protective bubbles and there are no gondolas going to the summit (which is weird).
Good and consistent grooming. Nice mix of skiers and snowboarders, young and old.
Really nice mix of beginner and intermediate runs. Snow was slushy in April so we didn’t get a chance to hit black diamond runs or powder :(
be CAREFUL getting off the lifts your first couple of runs because some chair lifts are VERY low to the ground and awkwardly slow…it’s good for kids but not adults.
At Big White, the lift attendants don’t believe in stopping the lift for crashes or accidents but they are good at slowing it down so you can drag your guts out of the way. Don’t believe me…watch Black Forrest lift for a few minutes.” 0
Mar 4, 2022: “My boyfriend surprised me with a proposal at big white. The sleigh ride was beautiful, but the "romantic cottage" and dinner were underwhelming. It left us both disappointed and upset, as this was one of the big moments of our lives. The unprofessional sleigh ride driver was the "waiter" for our dinner. He decided to help himself to the leftover food (croutons) and chew loudly right behind us while we were trying to make this letdown of an experience better. The ambiance was not what was portrayed, with things scattered around and even a roll of toilet paper hanging on the coat hook behind me (how romantic!!!!). We went for a walk on the trail in the snow where my boyfriend proposed to me (which was beautiful). When we came back, the first thing the driver said to me was "are you in a better mood now?". While we will laugh about this one day, it was very upsetting at the time.” 1
