With a name like Big White, it’s not a surprise this little-known resort town is actually a Big Deal. Condé Nast Traveler’s 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards just let our secret slip out (we were voted Conde Nast Traveler #2 Resort in Canada), and we’re glad they did. With around five million print readers a month, we can’t blame them for not being able to keep us to themselves. After all, the exciting part about having a secret is sharing it with others, and sharing is what we do best.
Big White Ski Resort beat out some world-class resorts to win this award, and with good reason. Most folks haven’t had a chance to enjoy what we like to call Okanagan Champagne powder. Our snow is fluffy and falls frequently. It’s no wonder we beat Whistler out for this prestigious award. All it takes is one visit for visitors to see why so many readers were inspired to vote for Big White Ski Resort. We don’t like to brag, but we were only 0.3 points away from edging Lake Louise out of the #1 spot. Turns out Big White is a big deal outside of Canada too. Condé Traveler’s readers voted us #12 in Best Ski Resorts in the US and Canada.
It may be your first visit to Big White, but Condé Travel has been ranking ski resorts for 34 years. Make no mistake about it. This prestigious magazine knows ski resorts, so it’s no surprise Big White made the cut. What’s not to love about a charming resort downtown with panoramic views to enjoy during the day and relaxing accommodations like Crescendo to enjoy at night? All it takes is one trip to Big White to see what the readers of Condé Travel want to share with the world. If you were looking for a reason to travel, take the advice of people who know ski resorts, readers who were inspired to share Big White with you. Just one visit and you’ll become part of one of the best-kept secrets around.
