Big White Ski Resort Ranked #2 in the World

Big White's Village

Recently, Reader's Digest came out with their list of the 14 Best Ski Resorts WORLDWIDE, and Big White came in at #2.  Nope, Whistler didn't even make the cut.

Interestingly, Snowbird (Utah) came in at #6. Before discovering Big White, Snowbird was my go to ski resort. At one time, in fact, we had made a bid on a couple of timeshares at Snowbird. Thankfully, that purchase never materialized, as, it was at Big White, of course, that we built Crescendo. With having more than 300’ of fresh champagne snowfall each season, its intimate family-friendly setting and Aussie-influenced energy, Big White is so deserving of Crescendo, and vice versa. Both, after all, are award-winning. Crescendo, in fact, took home the 2019 Oscar at the World Ski Awards ceremony in Kitzbühel, Austria for “Best Ski Chalet – Canada" (see Crescendo takes home the Oscar).
