Current season (as at February 15, 2020)

While British Columbia, and resorts in the Okanagan in particular, always receive plentiful snow each winter, the current 2019/20 season has been spectacular. The early period of the season from opening day to mid-December was normal. By the 16th December regular snow falls provided Big White Ski Resort with accumulation of 165cm and an alpine base of 109cm.

By the 14th January 2020 that result had ballooned to 459cm accumulation and the alpine base was 262cm. It did not slow down. By 31st January the accumulation was 561cm and the alpine base was 291cm.

December and January combined, delivered very happy visitors 464cm accumulation. That’s about 60% more than the long-term 38 year average for these two months combined at Big White.

The good news is the season is not over. The first 15 days of February delivered 111cm more accumulation, well ahead of the long-term full month average for February of 100cm. By the 15th February the accumulation total was 672cm and the alpine base breached 300cm.

There are good signs of regular accumulation continuing through to the end of the season in April. Mother nature has been very good to the Okanagan region this season and in particular Big White Ski Resort.

With this much cover there is plenty of time to enjoy the excellent conditions before the season ends. Easter at Big White Ski Resort could be the ideal spring ski vacation. Book now.
