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. Unfortunately due to COVID protocols this season the resort will not be offering rental clothing, Nordic skis, snowshoes, nor ice skates.

FAQ's

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.
