Kelowna Big White
Big White is awesome. I was snowshoeing on Big White today. There is so much happening there. Skiing and snowboarding, of course. Yet there are sleigh rides. dog sleds and best of all ice climbing. The layout is similar to Whistler with lots of shops, resturants hotels and condos. You park at the bottom of the village and take a free gondola up to the hub of the activity.
We went snowshoeing of course. The fresh power was awesome.
This ice climbing tower they have is awesome. For 20 bucks you gear up and get hooked into harnesses and ropes just like at an indoor rock climbing facility. Ice is very different to climb. It's a great opportunity to practice. It's the only one in North America. I can't believe I've never been to Big White before. There is so much you can't find in a crack pipe or a sleazy night club. I'm glad I went today and will definitely return.
