For early snow seekers, at Big White Ski Resort, December 2019 is set to become ski heaven.
Construction crews at Big White have been excavating in and around the Gem Lake / Westridge area, so that the Gem Lake Lift will be able to open early into the ski season. A new trail (Village Way), too, has been cut, enabling access to a new area on the Westridge side of the mountain: also set to open early into the ski season.
Normally, Big White fires up the Gem Lake Lift closer to Christmas. The blasting and the creation of Village Way, though, has enabled the Gem Lake Lift and that entire area to open with a shallower snowbase (about 30 to 40 centimeters lower). As such, that entire area will open several weeks earlier.
The investment in Gem Lake is one of several key developments which have taken place at Big White over the last few ski seasons. If you haven't visited Big White in the last few years, you are truly missing out. Wait till you see Big White's new access/bridge from the Village to Crescendo (and Big White's new Day Lodge at Black Forest)! Come visit us, and experience what Big White is most famous for: their season-long champagne powder.
