Don't peak too soon – scaling snow summits

Bundle up and get ready for big-time thrills on British Columbia's Big White Mountain, whose highest peaks measure 2,315 metres. The mountain's biggest draw is the Big White Ski Resort, the third largest ski resort in a province filled with them. Spend winter days skiing or snowboarding in fresh powder and summer days hiking under sunny skies. For a more laid-back experience, visit the resort village filled with shops, cafes and restaurants. A Big White vacation rental puts you just an hour from Kelowna, a popular lakeside town known for its parks, wineries and water adventures.

Keep busy in the fresh mountain air, from sailing to skiing

Book a stay at a Big White Mountain vacation rental and you'll never be far from winter fun – from ski runs and terrain parks, to snowmobile and cross-country trails. You can also sign up for skiing or snowboarding lessons, take a sleigh ride or go ice skating on an Olympic-sized outdoor rink. Once the snow melts and summer arrives, the resort offers such warm-weather activities as hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. Take a tour of the more than 20 wineries around nearby Kelowna or spend the day sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, diving and fishing on Okanagan Lake.

Paint a pretty picture – area museums abound

After a long day on the slopes, it might be time to give your credit card a workout. The resort's cosy but charming mountain village is home to the Village Centre Mall, where you can shop for everything from candy and fine wine, to cold-weather clothing and fashionable accessories. The shopping centre is also home to nearly 20 restaurants, cafes and delis. If you need your culture fix, head to Kelowna and visit the Kelowna Art Gallery, which highlights contemporary Canadian artists, and the Okanagan Heritage Museum, which celebrates local culture.

Flurries fall as you fly down the mountain

Staying in a Big White Mountain vacation rental during the winter? Then get ready for some serious snowfall as the mountain receives more than 750 centimetres of the white stuff each year. Powder may dust the region as early as November and as late as April, while the rainy season arrives in May and June. Make sure you're prepared for cold temperatures as well, with December highs usually averaging around -6 degrees Celsius. The warmest months on the mountain are July and August when daytime highs can climb to 16 degrees and the sun shines almost daily.

Beware of an unbearable sight – grizzlies!

As the highest summit in the Okanagan Highland, Big White Mountain, with its jagged, snow-capped peaks, dominates the landscape. There's plenty of water in the area as well, with the mountain nestled between the Kettle River and the Damfino Creek, and a host of small ponds scattered throughout the rugged region. Nearby Okanagan Lake is surrounded by a lush landscape, including pristine parkland, pine forests, vineyards and orchards. The lake offers plenty of sandy beaches for sunbathing as well. If you're hiking on the mountain, keep an eye out for company – black bears and grizzlies call the mountain their home.
