Big White Ski Resort to offer rebate for pass holders after early closure

Next year’s pass will include a 20 per cent rebate

Big White Ski Resort is refunding pass holders after closing winter operations due to COVID-19.

On March 16, the resort made the decision to close active winter operations during the early stages of what has become a worldwide pandemic. Today, Big White is introducing an offer that takes into consideration the early closure of the resort.

This year’s pass will include an instant 20 per cent rebate for the unprecedented closure to all renewing pass holders that had a 2019-20 season pass.

“We are proudly owned and operated by a Canadian family that lives and enjoys life in the Okanagan and we are aware of the impact that this pandemic has had on our pass holders,” said Peter Plimmer, president and CEO, Big White Ski Resort Ltd.
