Here’s a great “Tips Up” video from the Canadian Ski Council showing us how to ‘Face the Force’ from Big White Ski Resort
Go with the Flow!
Hey skiers, are you focused on finishing your turns? From the slopes of Big White near Kelowna, BC, ski pro Josh Foster focuses less on finishing and more on flow. In this on-hill video, Josh goes with the flow, showing us how to link one turn smoothly into the next.
Most Stylish Skiers Ever
They were as influential off the slopes as they were on. Introducing the all- time most stylish men’s alpine ski racers.
GOLD – STEIN ERIKSEN
The Norwegian-born great is the epitome of skiing style. Even at 87, the Olympic gold medalist – who moved the U.S. shortly after the 1952 Olympics – wines, dines, and smooth talks as the director of skiing at the classy Deer Valley resort in Utah.
SILVER – ALBERTO TOMBA
The Italian, La Bomba, rose to the top of the skiing world as a brash, aggressive skier, with throngs of women waiting in the finish area. Let’s not forget he became the first skier to medal in three different Olympic games and claimed 50 World Cup races.
BRONZE – JEAN-CLAUDE KILLY
Raised in the French Alps, the son of a shop owner learned to ski early, and quickly learned to win. The pinnacle of his career – three gold medals at the 1968 Games – etched this handsome skier into worldwide stardom.

It’s always so difficult.

The 2015-16 Snow Valley Ski season is finally under way. After battling warm conditions, the snow making crew were able to go consecutive nights and even string together a stretch of 36 hours. At last the lifts are running and the first week of lessons are done. Parts of Old Road and Southpaw are now open. It won’t be long for the entire stretch of Old Road to Klaus’ Korner will be done and then it’s off to North Hill.
There is a temporary park in place just below the triple chair. The Park Crew did a great job assembling a jump, a table top and rails for kids to hit all day long.
If you haven’t already tried some of the concession food, it really is looking and (best of all) tasting awesome.
See you on the slopes – we’re open and appreciate your patronage.
Due to very challenging snow making conditions – we have had very few nights with temperatures below -3 degrees – we will not have enough snow made to offer quality lessons this weekend (November 14 & 15) and we are forced to cancel the first day of programs.
The Christmas holidays prevent us from extending the programs later into December, so we would like to offer you a Snow Valley gift card for the value of the cancelled day of the lesson program. To collect your gift card, please bring your lesson card to Snow Valley Guest Services.
Our weekend programs are now scheduled to begin on Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22 and run for four weeks. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
While there isn’t enough snow to learn on, we encourage you to come to Snow Valley this weekend, or any time during “Pre-Season Hours” to pick up your gift card, to pick up lesson cards and pre-fit rentals for the programs.
Picking up lesson cards and fitting rental equipment before the lessons begin will make it much easier for you to speed through lines on the first day of programs.
