A few tips on getting around the resort. From the Big White Village Centre, the east side is where the majority of lifts are located. On this side there is one high-speed 6-seater chair (Snow Ghost Express), three high-speed quad chairs (Ridge Rocket, Bullet, and Black Forest). There are two double chairlifts (Cliff and Telus Park), and a single T-bar, the Alpine T-bar. The most advanced double black runs are underneath the Cliff chair.
The Ridge Rocket chair has a convenient and cozy day lodge at its base for food and beverages. The Black Forest Chairlift offers an excellent dining facility. The Village Centre with all amenities is mid-mountain. Stonebridge Lodge is less than a 2 minute walk to the Village Centre perfectly, positioned adjacent to the Bullet chair.
Getting around the Gem Lake ski area is a fantastic adventure. The Gem as it is known, certainly lives up to its name, being the farthest ski area from the Village Centre. Gem Lake high-speed quad chair is located on the western side of Big White. The longest run is 7.2 km (4.5 miles). This run “Around the World” runs from the top of the Alpine T-Bar to the bottom of Gem Lake.
The Falcon double chair and new Powder quad chair (installed in 2018) also provide access to Gem Lake. The Gem Lake lift offers the largest single-lift vertical drop on the mountain. The Westridge Warming Hut and Moonlight Bistro, is at the base of Gem Lake.
