Fun in the summer sun at Big White

Ditch the skis, people and explore the mountain by bike this summer

This is part of a series of stories celebrating the 60th anniversary of Big White Ski Resort

The fun doesn’t stop at Big White just because the snow melts.

When the boards and skis are put away, the bikes come out to play at Big White.

The mountain is a hot spot for mountain bikers of all ability levels. The resort’s Bike School, new rider programs and rental shops are open all summer to ensure that riders can build confidence and skills while staying safe out on the trails.

The iconic Big White bike park was built for riders by riders and features trails ranging from flowy greens to big air pro lines on black trails to suit every rider’s style. The flow trails, jump lines, brown pow and steep chutes are all part of what makes riding at Big White unique.

The Big White Slopestyle Center is an elite facility that draws new, up-and-coming and pro riders to train on the massive features.

The course at the Slopestyle Centre hosts freeride events and competitions throughout the summer.

For those with a competitive side, the mountain hosts races to suit any style.

The popular Fiv’r Fridays are a casual style of downhill race with categories for juniors, youth, men, women, elites, masters and adaptive riders that hit up a new course every Friday during the season.

Big White also hosts competitive and elite-level events including Big White B.C. Cup.

Riders can buy day or season passes to ride the chairlift up to access the trails and the slopestyle course all day.
