Big White Ski Kelowna hotel deals

Using Kelowna hotel deals to book a ski package for Big White is a cost-effective way to hit the slopes on one of Canada’s top mountain resorts.

The base at Big White Mountain Resort is approaching 140cm, and rising. Those conditions are ideal for this time of year, and people are flocking to the mountain as a result. If you haven’t booked holiday accommodation up on the hill, don’t worry. There are a number of Kelowna hotel deals that offer great value for money.

The great thing about Big White is you don’t need to stay at the resort to get the full mountain experience. Located less than an hour’s drive from Kelowna, you can easily squeeze in a full day of activity and still make it back into the city to enjoy a terrific meal out.

Here are a number of other advantages for those seeking ski packages through Kelowna hotels deals:


1. Rates Don’t Skyrocket

If you’ve ever booked accommodation at a ski resort over the Christmas holidays, you know it’s expensive. It’s the busiest time of year and accommodation providers understandably demand a premium to stay up on the ski hill.

On the other hand, with the Kelowna hotel deals offered by places like BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites, room rates might fluctuate slightly from month to month in winter, but not to the same extent as a mountain resort. The per-night rate includes:

  • Accommodation
  • Hot breakfast buffet
  • Full day lift ticket for Big White

That way, you can enjoy a ski tour in the Okanagan during the Christmas break, without having to pay peak holiday prices.


2. Leave When You Want

There is so much to do up at Big White that it would be difficult to imagine leaving before the sun sets. In addition to skiing, there are many other family-friendly activities for people to enjoy:

  • Dogsled tours
  • Ice climbing
  • Ice skating
  • Tubing
  • Sleigh rides
  • Snowshoe tours

However, let’s say your legs turn to jelly before the day ends, or the weather takes a turn for the worse. By booking your accommodation using Kelowna hotel deals, you can head back to the city and find a nice cozy way to relax. Best Western Kelowna features a number of onsite ‘après ski’ amenities that will help soothe your tired legs:

  • Indoor pool
  • Two outdoor hot tubs
  • Spa treatments
  • Casual dinner at the on-site restaurant


3. Experience More than Just Skiing

For some people, a day or two on the ski hill is all they need to feel satisfied (and exhausted). If you’re planning on being in the area for a number of nights, staying at Kelowna hotels presents you with plenty of other options for things to do. Some of the favourite options include:

  • Watching a Kelowna Rockets game
  • Touring local wineries
  • Watching a concert
  • Shopping at Orchard Park Mall or in the downtown tourist district
