WHY: Big White’s position in the Monashee Mountains above desert-like Okanagan Valley serves up lots of sun, relatively mild temperatures, and copious, dry powder. Add 118 runs, 15 lifts, and an amusement park’s worth of non-skiing distractions, and it’s no surprise Big White is popular with families. (It’s B.C.’s second busiest resort.) Additionaly, the trees are some of the best around, including a lift served area aptly called The Cliff.
CANADIAN INTELLIGENCE: The open trees between Shakey Knees and the Powder Chair are high-speed rippable.
APR-EH: Get an upper-body pump on at the ice-climbing tower at the resort’s Happy Valley Adventure Park.
