We’re so excited to have Canadian and home-grown talent, Kelsey Serwa show us the ropes around her backyard of Big White Ski Resort, located in beautiful British Columbia (her grandfather, Cliff Serwa co-founded the resort back in the early 60s).
The local beauty is a member of the Canada Ski Cross team, and you might recognize Kelsey from TV; she’s the Olympic Silver Medalist winner from the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Her titles also include: World Champion, National Champion and X Games gold medalist – impressive pedigrees for a 26-year-old. See her travel story below – it’ll inspire you to hit the slopes this weekend.

They say that home is where the heart is, but for me it’s also where the snow is. My name is Kelsey Serwa and I have been fortunate to call Big White Ski Resort my home mountain for the last 26 years. Chasing my older siblings down frosty trails, leaping off what we thought were daring jumps and gliding over the mountain’s undulating terrain as a child has sculpted me into the fierce ski cross competitor I am today. Though many things have changed since I was that little grommet, my love for the sport remains the same.

Primarily renowned for its champagne powder and “Snow Ghosts,” Big White Ski Resort also offers an array of fun activities, restaurants, bars, shops and cafés to entertain and entice those who wander to this beautiful mountain. Like visiting Beano’s in the Village Centre Mall; a must for tasty and affordable lunch combos and coffees.
