I ski Big White frequently however as it is the local hill I don’t tend to rent accommodation. That said I’d definitely consider the Stonebridge as it has the best location on the mountain and has rooms available with private hot tubs, pictures of the rooms are available on the Big White Website, www.bigwhite.com
. The second choice I’d have is Black Bear, which are townhouse units with private hot tubs and is pretty well located. The Whitefoot is very well located, but I don’t think they have rooms with private hot tubs available the same goes for the White Crystal Inn.
Conditions at the end of March are generally very good, fog can frequently be a problem earlier in the year, but it has cleared up by March and there is still plenty of snow. As a family hill Big White is excellent, the ski school for Kids is rated quite highly and they have events on most nights for children. Another nice feature for families is Big White generally does not normally get that cold, which is a bonus if you have children. Terrain wise big white has excellent beginner and intermediate terrain, including a nice bowl and some great glade skiing. There are some good expert runs, some more advanced glades and a short steep bowl with a new lift this year. Additionally there is an extensive new Terrain park that will be lighted for night skiing and has its own lift that is new this year. The one complaint I have regarding the terrain at Big White is the Lack of double diamond expert only runs of any length, for this kind of terrain a trip to Silverstar or Apex is necessary. As Silverstar and Big White share common ownership there is a shuttle or Helicopter ride available between the two to get to Apex a vehicle would be required.
