NES 2020

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure Rice has plans to go to MCC again this year, so I"m thinking he might not organize anything at Nakiska this year.

NES 2020? Anyone? Anyone?

Yes, sorry. I didn't put NES together this year. I promise next year I'll get it going again. Come to MCC at Turner in February!

Too busy being a grandpa again I think! Have fun at Turner. I’m going to be at Big White last week of January with Donnagail and a bunch of old friends.

I’ll be interested to hear what the resort is like. I’m headed there for the first time in early March for a BX race, and am getting excited about being there for a week! It’ll be my first taste of Canadian snow too! 

Have fun!

Big White is a great hill!  It is the 2nd largest resort in BC, after Whistler/Blackcomb.  It is not as pretty/rugged as other Canadian resorts, for the real Canadian experience I highly recommend you visit Banff sometime.

There is a wide variety of terrain, from easy cruising up to a few hairy double blacks.   You should give "The Cliff" a shot if conditions are good.  There's good glades if trees are your thing.  They get a lot of snow, and because of that visibility is often not great.  The nickname is "Big Whiteout".  Bring some good low-light goggles.

It's a great family hill due to all the on-mountain accommodation.  You can rent a nice ski-in/ski-out condo for reasonable money, and they have an excellent ski school/daycare combo.  Most people stock up on groceries and booze in Kelowna, but if you run short there's shops in the village.  They have a number of good restaurants and bars.  You should check out Snowshoe Sam's, a great ski bar that's been around forever.
