We often recommend bringing your own boots, but save the stress of travelling with your own skis and boards.

At Big White Ski Resort’s Rental Shop, you’ll find everything you need. The inventory is refreshed each year, so you’re assured of the latest technology underfoot. The resort also provides a good range of rental clothing for adults and children, along with Nordic skis, snowshoes and ice skates.

For intermediate and more advanced skiers and riders, opt for the high-performance and powder rentals to take your skills to that next level. Enjoy the added benefit of switching this gear as often as you like, to try out the full range on offer.

The best boot-fitters in Canada are here too, at Dizzy’s Ski Shop. They also offer rebates on rental hire costs if you decide to try before you buy.

Snow How Tip: Kids under the age of 13 receive a free helmet when renting a full set of equipment.

Stonebridge at Big White


I see more people wearing helmets on the snow. Is this mandatory at Big White?

More skiers and boarders around the world are wearing helmets. Children in ski school lessons are required to wear a helmet. Otherwise, it is not mandatory to wear a helmet at Big White but we think it’s the smart thing to do. Not only does it provide some protection but will assist keep you warm.

If you don’t have a helmet already you can purchase or rent on your arrival. The retail stores in Big White provide a good selection and with keen prices.

Should I bring my own skis/board and boots or rent while visiting Big White Ski Resort?

While it’s nice to be able to ski or board with your own kit the reality is most airlines around the world are now charging for sporting luggage outside of the normal passenger allowance. The good news is the rental equipment in the resort is excellent quality and with a wide choice for all proficiencies.

Being a ski/in ski/out environment it means you can change equipment easily, and even daily, if you wished to test advanced skis or boards in different snow and weather conditions.

Personally, if you already have great boots they may be worth bringing from home for your assured boot comfort but rental skis and boards available at the resort should cater for all your needs.

If I need to purchase any additional gear once I arrive at the resort what retail options are available?
