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 - So deep. Just spent a week there and found deep, fresh tracks daily. Poor visibility most of the time but the snow was epic. Stick to the trees.   - © anonymous
