Big White celebrated its traditional Christmas Light Up on the first Saturday of December which has become a staple must-see event for local residents and visitors alike. This year, with the lack of snow in the valley and over 100cm in the resort, Big White experienced a 50% increase in volumes sharing the tradition with a lot of first timers.
Michael J Ballingall, Senior Vice President of Big White Ski Resort Ltd. said, “An amazing amount of new faces were in the resort tonight. It always brings a smile to my face when little ones are so surprised to see our Winter Wonderland. Tonight we served 2,200 cups of hot chocolate and 1,700 Christmas cookies. That was a busy night.”.
