We have been offering this service without public notice for several years so it is time to provide some details and update for coming 2019/2020 winter ski season . Our offering is not only transportation service from YVR – Vancouver Airport and Vancouver to Big White but also connection to-from Whistler and Sun Peaks. It is about 465km (290 mi) from Vancouver airport. (http://www.bigwhite.com/) .
Big White is known as place with amazing powder and many quality runs. As it is tucked in BC interior, just south-west of Kelowna place is blessed with lost of sunhine. This combined with consistent winter long quality runs is recipe for great vacations.. Trip from Vancouver in the winter excluding stops is about 6-7 hours.
For the convenience of real skiing “mountain hopping addicts” we also provide for direct transfer from Sun Peaks to Whistler or vice versa. This is very convenient trip as it takes only about 4.5- 5.5 hours door to door. Time not wasted on airports/security, subject to reasonable weather conditions and passable roads. We always monitor the road condition making sure that trip is possible.
There are many reasons when direct ground connection from Vancouver to Sun Peaks is better option, especially for the group of five or more. Our price is changed only to reflect higher cost of fuel from last year; one way is $1380.00 including tax and service charge/gratuity per vehicle. We believe this is the best price – value for transportation to Sun Peaks. Sun Peaks to/from Whistler is $1450.00 again one way. This price is for Mercedes Sprinter van (11 passengers) and Cadillac Escalade (5 passengers).
It could be just price – air ticket YVR to Kelowna in season is about $320.00 pp and transportation from Kelowna airport to Big White in private shuttle about $420 both plus applicable taxes so it easy to calculate the benefit of the direct transfer. There are many occasions when in the winter Kamloops airport is closed or restricted with flights delayed or canceled for bad weather and no one want to miss international flight or a day of precious vacations. We had saved few vacationers from Australia and England when bad weather closed Kamloops airport and 4×4 luxury SUV was way to go. This is the time when travel insurance comes handy
Please Note!: With regret, under pressure from abnormally high fuel cost (now over 1.50/l) we added fuel surcharge (4.5%) to the base price of the trips. We hope that’s only temporary measure and appreciate understanding.
