Following a three week ‘pause’ Health Order by BC Health earlier this week, to curb the growing numbers of COVID cases, most B.C. resorts are closing as of Monday, April 5. With a recent incidenton the mountain ignorning COVID safe protocols, the resort have taken the view that closing early is a necessary action to keep its guests, residents and team members safe from COVID-19.
“We made the decision to stay open until April 11 back in June of last year,” says Peter Plimmer, President and CEO of Big White Ski Resort Ltd. “Since then, a lot has changed. In the past week, even more has changed. We are grateful to have been able to keep the resort open and safe as long as we have, and even more grateful to the community that has supported our efforts. However, with other resorts shutting down, we have become a magnet for non-local skiers and snowboarders.”
Big White Ski Resort Ltd would like to thank its loyal patrons, Interior Health employees and medical staff, emergency services, and the City of Kelowna first responders for their support during the most challenging season in its history.
We will be accepting reservations for next season will be opening later in April and we look forward to welcoming everyone back over the summer months (July 1, 2021) and for the next winter ski season (November 25, 2021).
