Activities & Tours

Wagner Custome Skis
There is no shortage of non-skiing activities at Big White for children and the young at heart. The staff at the activities desk in the Village Centre Mall can help you with a range of family pursuits or adults-only activities such as winery tours.

Family Activities

Family centric activities are largely located down at Happy Valley, at the base of the Lara Gondola.

The Mega Snow Coaster is a must-do activity for families or anyone who wants a bit of a giggle. The tubing park has multiple lanes. One side has steep single lanes for those who want to go fast, whilst the other side of the park has double lanes for those that want to ride in pairs or a group. The Mega Snow Coaster is mega fun!

Other activities at Happy Valley include mini snowmobiles for the kids, ice-skating on a large rink, horse drawn sleigh rides, and dog sledding tours.

For those who are a little more adventurous there is ice-climbing on a big tower. You can do just one climb if you wish, which includes equipment rental, tuition and a staff member to belay you.

In addition to all these activities, Big White organises special family events, carnivals and fireworks.

Cross Country Skiing

Big White Happy Valley is also the start of the 25km Nordic skiing trails, and you can also snow-shoe on these trails. You can DIY snowshoe or take a daytime or evening tour.


Big White Snowmobile tours for the big kids (you have to be 19 years or older to drive a big snowmobile) are available at Big White, which includes helmets and warm clothing. Tour durations are 1, 2, 3 or 4 hours and they also have Wiener Roast tours on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Ice Hockey

You can get into the Canadian culture by taking in an ice hockey match in Kelowna to see the Kelowna Rockets. The resort organizes a bus and tickets to the game.


For a bit of R&R, there are a couple of Big White day spas including Beyond Wrapture (at Chateau Big White) and Elevation Village Spa, offering massage and other treatments.
