When exploring the terrain at Big White, make sure to look out for “snow ghosts” that haunt the mountain. The snow ghosts are frosty, snow-caked trees that have been dubbed ghosts by the locals. Fear not as these trees are truly a site to behold.

Big White - Clear day, a bit chilly at -21c in the morning, warmed up to -15c in afternoon. Snow was pretty good compared to 2 weeks of no snow in Whistler from a couple weeks ago. Some fresh powder would be nice though.  - © lone wolf
