Summer Arrives at Big White Ski Resort

Summer Arrives at Big White!

No more, “Oh no, no snow!”  Why?  Because Big White Mountain Resort has opened its doors for another great summer season!

Here at Crescendo, we’re already welcoming guests for another brilliant summer season.  A lot is new at Big White this season, and we’d like to highlight some of those for you:

Extended Opening for 2018

Big White is now open from Thursday to Monday over the summer season.  Opening day is 28th June and the resort is open for each of those five days through early September.  During that time, the Bullet Chair will whisk our guests to the top of the mountain from 10am-5pm, providing plenty of time to explore the beautiful trails on foot or by bike.

Big White Bike Park

Big White Bike Park is home to one of North America’s newest bike parks, and WHAT A PARK IT IS!  The trails were built by riders themselves, including those riders who annually push the envelope combining speed, tricks, and flight (yes, flight).  The result?  Spectacular!  World-class riding at its finest. 

Not a professional biker?  No worries.  The resort also features a pump track for newbies and beginners to get their feet wet (OK, dirty), and there are plenty of downhill trails for bikers of every level.  For that reason, too, Big White Bike Park has extended its hours on Friday nights, remaining open for biking enjoyment to 7.30pm.

New Kids Zone

Big White has a great reputation for being a family friendly resort, and this summer they have gone that extra mile with a brand new Kid’s Zone, open all summer, Thursday to Monday, from 11am-2pm.   Set to be the perfect backyard games experience, kids will be entertained in the Kid’s Zone with various activities.  Arts & Craft projects, for example, will include rock painting, lantern making and pet bug making.

Every Friday night, too, the resort will project the latest movie releases onto their giant outdoor movie screen.  So grab some popcorn and catch a movie in one of the most beautiful settings on earth!

Great Events

Throughout the summer, Big White is hosting a variety of great events and festivals, including the tasty annual Huckleberry Festival and L’Alpe de Grande Blanc cycle race.

Really, there’s so much to do at Big White during the summer!  Check-out the Big White events page for further information or watch Big White’s opening weekend video to catch up on all of this year’s big news:
