Big White's dry powder is legendary and was awarded "Best Powder" by Ski Canada Magazine in 2008! Big White is uniquely blessed with sunny weather, dry powder and a mild average temperature of -5C (23 F). There's a great selection of terrain for everyone with deep powder bowls, wide-open glades, and great fall-line cruising.
