Is Big White Ski Resort really snow bound and how close is Stonebridge Lodge to the village centre and chair lifts?
Big White is a unique winter ski resort where the village centre is situated part of the way up the front of the mountain. This means the village centre is snow bound, and the clever design of all-weather roads links the various accommodations. A series of snow-ways (bridges and tunnels), allows skiers and boarders full access from top to bottom with safe ski-in, ski-out accommodation access right to the door.
This makes Big White Ski Resort very different to almost any other ski destination you may have experienced. No walking or shuttle bus to get to the lifts, or to get back to Stonebridge Lodge Resort. At the same time when you arrive at Big White Ski Resort you can be driven right to your lodging. For Stonebridge Lodge Resort, the vehicle and shuttle access is via the heated underground car park, with elevator access to your floor. It’s that easy.
On one side of Stonebridge is the Easy Street ski run, that goes straight through to the village centre. On the other side is the Bullet Express high speed quad chair. The convenience of Stonebridge Lodge Resort is second to none at Big White.
Two minutes’ walk from Stonebridge will get you to the Village Centre Mall building and a further two minutes to the Ski School and grocery market. Nothing is far.
Stonebridge Lodge Resort is all position and convenience for your stay at Big White Ski Resort, Kelowna BC, Canada.
Many ski resorts claim ski-in, ski-out, including Big White, but what does this really mean?
Yes, many resorts or individual accommodations claim ski-in, ski-out but few actually deliver.
For Stonebridge Lodge Resort guests, you can literally ski from the entry of the three buildings, in and out. Not just for a short distance or to another staging point, rather there is a major ski run on one side of Stonebridge. On the other side of the property is a high speed quad chairlift, The Bullet Express.
Your secure ski locker is at ground level and you simply click into your bindings and ski away from outside the locker room. If you come back to your condo during the day you can safely leave your skis/board and poles at the entry to each of the three buildings within Stonebridge for your total convenience.
Skiing from Stonebridge to find a lift is so easy and convenient. Either ski a few metres on Bullet Alley to the Bullet Express chair, situated right next to our property, or choose to ski or board through the village centre and down the hill via the Hummingbird run and take your choice of three chairs – Plaza, Snow Ghost Express and Ridge Rocket Express.
Another important benefit to consider when choosing your accommodation is the ski-in, ski-out access at Stonebridge is suitable for first-timers and beginners − an almost flat walk into the village for our younger and less mobile guests and non-skiers.
