As the holidays approach new runs are opening and new lifts are getting ready to start spinning. The Powder Chair at Big White is next on the list to open, joining seven other lifts that are already operational. The Mega Snowcoaster tubing park has also opened, along with Canada’s highest altitude skating rink in Happy Valley at the bottom of Lara’s Gondola.
The Christmas lights are twinkling in the village and a host of dining and entertainment options are getting ready for Christmas and New Year’s. Visit the Holiday Specials page on Big White’s website to weigh all of your options. If you want our opinion, you can’t go wrong with the Kettle Valley Steakhouse on New Years! Let the servers pamper you with a 7 course extravaganza with live music all night from a guitar soloist. Reservations are required, if interested call the steakhouse at 250.491.0130.
Big White’s Beyond Wrapture Spa also has a couple’s signature massage offered over the holidays, something you will definitely want to check out after a day on the slopes!
Big White opened on November 14th, earlier than the projected opening day to everyone’s delight. Big White has a 66cm base at the time of this post with flurries in the forecast. Take a look at the opening day video:
Kelowna, British Columbia, has a moderate climate with terrain that is varied. The golf season is long and dry beginning as early as March and ending in early to mid-November. There are more than a dozen 18-hole courses located within a 30 km/19 mi radius of downtown Kelowna. The wonderful, rolling orchids, arid grasslands, and forested mountain sides create a range of challenges for golfers of all abilities.
