Big fun for final Big White weekend

Big White said goodbye to the ski season with one big party this past weekend

It’s that time of year again went the snow finally stops snowing and the weather warms up.

Which means Big White Mountain is closing down for the season.

But just because the ski season is finishing up doesn’t mean it has to be a sad goodbye — in fact Big White threw a year-end party in order to celebrate.

The first Annual Slush Cup took place on Sunday where skiers came dressed in their fanciest attire from man bikinis, to batman costumes.

The mountain was a packed with visitors taking in everything from an outdoor hot tub, to a BBQ, and DJ.

If spectators weren’t watching the hysterics at the Slush Cup, they were taking in the Dummy Downhill.

Dozens of homemade contraptions were sent speeding down the race course bound to smash into a hundred pieces. Contestants faced off their dummies to win prizes for the biggest air, fastest dummy, best crash, best design and of course best dressed.

The final weekend was the place to be if you enjoy skiing in the Central Okanagan, as Big White entertained with plenty of Easter events as well.

Children painted eggs, took pictures with the bunny himself and even started their Easter Sunday with Happy Day lodge breakfast.

Check out the action below.
