I am working on next years big ski trip to Big White and was thinking of flying into Vancouver and driving to Big White. The rates to Vancouver are about $250 pp cheaper than Kelowna. Of course we would have to rent a SUV ($500) but since we are a party of 4 (or possible 6), there are still significant savings.
So how is the drive? I know it is about 5 hours drive and that's about it.
I did the drive from Denver to Aspen once and now prefer just to fly into aspen because there is not much of a cost savings involved and you do not need a vehicle while in Aspen.
