For discerning individuals-couples to families and groups up to 10.
We have been offering this service without public notice for several years so it is time to provide some details and update for coming 2023/2024 winter ski season . Our offering is not only transportation service from YVR – Vancouver Airport and Vancouver to Big White but for the convenience of real skiing “mountain hopping addicts” we also provide for direct transfers connection to-from Whistler to Sun Peaks and Big White respectively. It is about 465km (290 mi) from Vancouver airport. (http://www.bigwhite.com/) .
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.
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 most of the winter with lots of sunhine. This combined with consistent winter long quality powder runs is recipe for great vacations.. Trip from Vancouver in the winter excluding stops is about 6-7 hours.
There are many reasons when direct ground connection from Vancouver to Big White is better option, especially for the group of five or more. Without anticipation of much higher fuel prices from last year; one way is now :
$1640.00 including tax and service charge/gratuity per vehicle.
We believe this is the best price – value for transportation to Big White.
Big White to/from Whistler is :
$1960.00 again one way.
This price is for Mercedes Sprinter van (11-14 passengers) and large GM SUV (5 adults, 6 with children).
It could be just price – air ticket YVR to Kelowna in season is about $400.00 pp and transportation from Kelowna airport to Big White in private shuttle about $500 both plus applicable taxes so it easy to calculate the benefit of the direct transfer. There are many occasions when in the winter regional airports are 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.
