The appropriate size and scale of development of the base area facilities are directly linked to the capacity, location and scope of the resort attractions. As planned Big White will have four base area focal points. The existing Main Village will gradually be redeveloped, infilled to reinforce its pedestrian character and its unique over snow access and egress.
Complementing this, a new community oriented Lower Village will be established. This will become the iconic centre for Big White, directly linked by trails, lifts and roads to all points of the resort.
Another smaller village base will be developed at the bottom of the East Peak, catering to the opportunity of establishing a distinctive high end character.
The existing Westridge Base will maintain its day use oriented function while seeing expansion and a connection to the specialized adventure and training facilities at Gem West.
