Paddle your way to opening day at Big White Ski Resort

Your eyes are forward, feet are shoulder width apart, you have a slight bend in the knees and a stable bend at the waist.

If it weren’t 30 degrees outside you might be shredding Okanagan Champagne Powder up at Big White Ski Resort, but it's summer in the Okanagan which means that you’re finding your balance on a stand up paddleboard.

If you have one that is. If not, Big White Ski Resort wants to hook you up.

You have the chance to win not one, but two paddle boards courtesy of Okanagan Spring from now until August 13.

Included with each 10ft inflatable board is an aluminum paddle, three fins, hand pump, velcro ankle strap and a backpack bag so you can carry your board to whichever lake your heart desires.

If you’re up for a real adventure, take the scenic drive up to Big White Ski Resort and hike your boards into Rhonda Lake to test your balance on the refreshing water surrounded by fantastic views.

How it works

1. Purchase your Early Bird Seasons Pass to Big White Ski Resort by August 13.

2. Big White Ski Resort will draw one lucky seasons pass holder to win:

  • Two 10ft inflatable paddle boards from Okanagan Spring,
  • Two aluminum paddles,
  • Two hand pumps,
  • Two velcro ankle straps,
  • Two backpack bags.

3. Paddle off into the Okanagan sunset!

Already bought your seasons pass? Not to worry, you’ve been automatically entered into the draw and better start choosing who you’ll invite to join you on the water.

In case you missed it, Big White Ski Resort is also offering the chance to win your pass! By purchasing yours in the month of August, you’ll automatically receive three entries to the draw.

What better time to buy your pass with confidence than right now and take advantage of this opportunity to spend the rest of your summer flexing those powder-shredding muscles on the lake?
