The Mountain

A Slider Snow Ghosts

Big White Mountain has something for skiers and boarders of pretty much any ability. We have provided a few recommendations for each skier/ boarder level below along with a number of tips on where to ski on the mountain during varying conditions.

Advanced Skiers

If you enjoy Glade skiing then the Gem Lake area is a must.  Hook up with a local your first few times through the trees to become familiar with the area.  Its’ large and very easy to get lost.  For those looking for some steeper terrain try either the Falcon Chair or Parachute Bowl.


Gem Lake has some nice long Blue Cruisers.  The Ridge Rocket and Powder chairs also provide access to some more challenging blue runs and some of the easier back diamond runs.


Black Forrest is for you.  Gentle Blue and Green slopes and even some wide open glades for those that are just learning to ski through the trees.  The brand new Black Forrest Day Lodge is an ideal place for lunch.

Poor Visibility Days

On those days that the clouds are hanging low on the mountain visibility allows seem to be a bit better in the Black Forrest area as the altitude is significantly lower then anywhere else on the mountain.  The abundant number of trees make it much easier to keep your bearings.
