What's New This Season at Big White Ski Resort

We have invested in a state of the art RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device) system that offers a hands-free, streamlined and efficient lift access. Once you pick up your 2014/2015 Season Pass, Biggie Card or Lift Ticket; you can reload it online as often as you like and go direct to the lift.

Your Season Pass has a new look - It now displays your name, age category, height and pass number. As we no longer require a line of sight as a means to identification, we also no longer require your photo to be printed on you Season Pass. Your photo is stored in our system and as you go through the gate,it will be displayed on a hand held device monitored by our ticket checkers.
