A ski holiday is also all about après ski. Our team has a winter wonderland ‘must do’ list of après events.
Be tempted. Savour a 6 course degustation dinners, pairing local wine with local produce, at 6 Degrees Bistro. Try your hand at a moonlit snowshoe. Take a romantic sleigh ride to a log cabin in the wilderness for a truly unique dining experience.
The resort has an Irish tavern, aptly named the Blarney Stone, with plenty of events always planned, and St Patricks Day the highlight, along with their Weekly Trivia, which will test the best of us.
Everything is at your doorstep — from take-out pizza, tapas, to fine dining to taste Canadian salmon and wild game. Enjoy some appies — that’s Canadian for starters — and a Molson (Canadian Beer) on the snow patios at some of the resorts bar.
Drop a puck on the local ice rink, and start a family game of hockey, or watch on, sipping a hot chocolate in front of the bonfire. There are always locals around looking to join in a game. Whilst you’re at the Happy Valley Adventure Park, tubing is a must-do thrill, as you slide down the tube lane in an inflatable tire. Who knew this could be so much fun!
The resort has a weekly calendar of events for the young and young at heart – fireworks, Kids’ Carnival, Cruz the Blues ski events, Big Reds at Big White, and more.
For guests looking for an off-the-mountain experience, here at Stonebridge at Big White, our team design a series of bespoke food and wine experiences, partnering with award winning wineries in Kelowna.

My visit was a spur of the moment decision to fly from Sydney, Australia, to surprise my son, his wife and my grandson who had flown into Big White from Singapore for two weeks.
I was quick to get over jetlag and loved spending time with the family – especially exploring the Happy Valley Adventure playground – sleigh rides with my grandson, popcorn treats by the bonfire, and watching him manage (very well) to walk in snow shoes.
I joined in skiing on Ladies Day and Masters Monday group lessons and loved my time here in this truly winter wonderland with my family. Stonebridge was the ideal location with my grandson – easy to walk into the village, ski home to check on him with his babysitter (provided through the resort). We loved being able to cook up fabulous meals in the well-appointed executive style Stonebridge Lodge condominium kitchen, then relax by the fireplace to read, or just watch the snow falling gently outside our window overlooking the Easy Street ski run. Life is great at Stonebridge and Big White.
Thank you! Arrived this afternoon and it is snowing so bloody fantastic well done. The condo is great, our son is shovelling the balcony so we may be in the hot tub later, can’t wait to hit the slopes tomorrow.
Everything is beautiful and Karin looks relaxed.
Merry Christmas & best wishes, Daryl.
What a wondrful time our family had at Big White. Lots of snow. This was our first white Christmas and we skiied, skated, tubed, mini ski dooed and a sleigh ride through the trees.
Our second stay in 2303 has been fantastic again! Weather has been superb, lots of fresh snow and sunshine. Loving the 6 Degrees Bistro downstairs, great local cuisine and wine. Internet access is appreciatedd. Looking forward to getting back here again soon.

What a wonderful place to spend Christmas. We had plenty of snow, some challenging runs and the best apartment to return to each day, plus a hot tub! We’d have to go a long way to beat this – in fact we did come a long way!! Thank you for making your fantastic apartment available to us. Hopefully we will return with our family very soon.
Beautiful views and great location. We really enjoyed our stay.
We found the condo well stocked (kitchen utensils etc.) not that we did any cooking! We loved the location too – very handy for the shops and restaurants etc. We very much hope to return next year for more glorious skiing! The private hot tub was a particular favourite with us.
Love the apartment, love the snow, love Big White! Hope to come back again very soon….
Thanks for allowing us to stay in your wonderful Stonebridge Lodge condo. It’s actually our second time and we try to get it now every time we come back to Big White. The kids love the ski-in, ski-out and come and go as they please.
