Big White Ski Resort’s General Snow Conditions During The Ski Season

Big White Ski Resort is known for its champagne powder snow and excellent ski weather conditions throughout the ski season.

On average, Big White Ski Resort receives 7.5 metres (24.5 ft) of snow annually. The average ski season is approximately 135 days long, and Big White Ski Resort often receives the ideal temperatures and precipitation for fluffy, ski-approved snow. Big White Ski Resort generally opens in late November to early December but is also often able to open earlier and was the first ski resort to open for the 2022/2023 ski season in BC

Located in the Okanagan Valley, Big White Ski Resort also tends to be a bit “drier” meaning that its snow is often fluffier and more powdery (and less heavy than what most ski resorts get), perfect for skiing and snowboarding.

With its ideal ski conditions and champagne powder snow, Big White Ski Resort is one of the top family ski resorts in Canada for a reason.

When Should I Book My Ski Trip For The Best Ski Weather at Big White Ski Resort?

Finding the right time of year to book your ski trip can always be tricky, especially if you’re trying to pick the best time to go for ideal skiing and snow conditions. And choosing the right time based on the average weather doesn’t take into consideration the crowds that may or may not be there as well. 

So when it comes to choosing the right dates for booking your ski vacation at Big White Ski Resort, you’ll want to take as much as possible into consideration. 

Big White Ski Resort is well known for its consistent, high-quality conditions for skiing and snowboarding throughout the ski season. However, the months with the highest average snowfall and coldest weather are typically December, January and February. February often sees the most “bluebird” days (i.e. clear blue skies), while December often sees the most snow (i.e. lots of fresh snowfall to make fresh tracks in). December also has the benefit of plenty of holiday-oriented activities and events and a festive atmosphere. But those holiday activities and events also mean a lot more visitors and crowds, and it is the busiest month of the year for Big White Ski Resort (and most ski resorts in general). Generally speaking, January is one of the least busy months of the year that still receives plenty of good snowfall and weather conditions for skiing. 

In short, if you’re looking for holiday activities and lots of fresh snow, book your ski vacation at Big White Ski Resort in December. If you’re looking for fewer crowds and more bluebird days, we’d recommend booking your Big White Ski Resort ski vacation in January and early February.

If you’re ever trying to plan a family ski vacation based on the weather in advance, we highly recommend using the Old Farmer’s Almanac (we use it a lot, too!)
