The Big White Neighbourhood

Ski outside your door.

Located only 70 kilometres east of Kelowna, Big White Ski Resort is Canada's favourite family resort for good reason. With some of the best powder found west of the Rockies and an average snowfall of 750 cm, Big White offers skiers and snowboarders a playground of fun beginner, novice and advanced runs.

Housing is just as varied at Big White. Home to both part-time and full-time residents, Big White has grown to include several new housing developments over the past few years. Buyers have a choice of well-appointed condominiums, townhouses, and chalets, offering ski-in and ski-out access.

Those who own a home at Big White can also take advantage of the healthy vacation and short-term rental market at the hill, earning extra income on their investment along with a place to stay and store their winter gear.
