Full review

We visited Big White for the first time for President's week and stayed at the Plaza on RIdge condominiums. The unit was spacious and clean but extremely noisy. We could here both the neighbors on side as well as upstairs and from the adjacent communal hot tub. Customer service was unable to find a better unit so we had to endure the noise for most of the week and then finally decided to leave a day early. We did enjoy the skiiing. The snow was light and we had new snow every day. There were high winds two of the days so a number of the lifts were closed. Visibility was also sometimes a challenge especially at the top of some of the runs. There were numerous times we ran into unmarked objects such as tree branches and rocks. The snowpack was lower than usual at the time of our trip so that may have contributed the number of obstacles. Crowds were nonexistent with almost zero wait time at the lift lines. All in all we were very happy with the skiing,
