Big White … Better than ever this winter!
Big White invests $20M in upgrades for 19/20 Season
It’s been a busy Big White summer. Preparations are underway for a winter that’s expected to be bigger and better than ever. The plans begin with a $500,000 investment at Gem Lake. The recent works on the Gem Lake Chair will allow skiers and boarders to hit Westridge much earlier in the season. Christmas has come early!
Beginner’s Luck + Lara’s Gondola
Things are looking up for Big White first-timers with a $235,000 investment, installing a brand new magic carpet. So it’s stocks aside as the tiny tots perfect their pizza ploughs!
Plus Lara’s Gondola (connecting Happy Valley to the ticket desk in the Village) will also receive a $500,000 injection to creating larger cabins. That means more people up the mountain faster! You’ll be maximising ski runs in the winter and biking in the summer.
Big White Groomers Fleet addition
A brand new $500,000 groomer is arriving soon. This will ensure your favourite Big White run is always in its best possible condition.
New Res Centre plus $12M investment in staff accommodation
It keeps on coming. This season will see the stage 1 completion of a central reservations building. A $5.5M injection and 192 staff beds being added! Well slept staff (and more of them!) means even better customer service for your Big White experience.
That brings us to a grand total of just under $20 million in Big White upgrades. It’s set to be a sensational season!
