Why Big White Ski Resort Makes the Perfect Wellness Retreat Destination

Wellness retreats are an excellent way to unwind. Add on the soothing benefits of a mountain destination, and you’ve got yourself the ultimate vacation for relaxation. Big White Ski Resort is not only full of ways for you to relax but it’s also located on the beautiful Big White Mountain in British Columbia.

Big White Ski Resort is a stunning mountain resort with lush forests, breathtaking mountain views, and plenty of ski trails to explore. Immersing yourself in the mountain’s natural scenery and gorgeous views will help you disconnect from day-to-day stresses and reconnect with the environment.

In fact, according to a 2020 article from Yale Environment 360, “studies have shown that time in nature… is an antidote for stress: It can lower blood pressure and stress hormone levels, reduce nervous system arousal, enhance immune system function, increase self-esteem, reduce anxiety, and improve mood.”

Simply spending time in the natural world can be an excellent de-stressor. Along with its natural beauty, Big White Ski Resort also has plenty of other ways to relax while visiting the mountain.
