SameSun Big White Lodge is the place all your snow dreams come true! This
is a sociable friendly lodge right up a big Canadian mountain. It’s totally ski-
in/ski-out. That bit means you can walk to the back door, strap on your
board and go down a run. And then ski right back to the door at lunchtime.
Now that’s good. We like that bit. You don’t get that at Whistler.
It’s newly renovated - clean and bright with great common areas and a
kitchen that’s plenty big enough for all your supplies and cooking escapades.
It’s got a beautiful hot tub and internet and laundry facilities. We don’t
expect you will want to return to reality, but we know that people sometimes
need to, so SameSun operate a twice-daily shuttle service between the
Kelowna and Big White Lodges.
The lodge is a 2-minute walk to the village where you can shop, start your
ski/snowboard lesson then eat, drink and live it up at night.
The Big White Lodge offers ideal accommodation if you are looking to work a
ski season at a mountain with awesome snow, terrain, nightlife, views, tree-
runs...ahhh must we go on? We can hook you up with a dorm shared
accommodation and you can work and live with your mates! Check out the
pics in the photo gallery and click on ‘Virtual Tour - Big White’ to see what we
are so excited about.
