The resort includes 12 lifts, three of which are already open, with more scheduled to open this Saturday, November 23. If you’re looking for a weekend away, Big White just might be the answer.

The irony of alpine skiing on an active volcano will escape you after a few turns down fresh powder at Mt. Baker. Approximately a one-hour drive from Vancouver, this Bellingham ski resort is closer than some of our own local mountains. So grab your gear and hop the border for opening weekend.
Adult 1-Day Lift Ticket: $55
The return of the West Coast winter means the opening of Canada’s most popular cross-country resort. Cypress Mountain‘s staff quote this weekend as their hopeful opening day, weather permitting. And while Cypress is known for its world-class nordic terrain, don’t forget about their alpine offerings. With 610m of vertical, Cypress brags the most runs of the North Shore mountains.
