“We’ve had consistent snowfalls through December and January, getting snow when the coast was getting rain,” says Michael Ballingall, Big White’s Senior Vice President. “Being inland and the highest resort in the interior our snow has stayed fresh. We’ve received another 26 centimetres in the last week and consistently have the highest snow base of the resorts in the interior.”
