Our security staff reserves the right to check all items that are leaving the building. You can fully expect security to be doing their jobs, please respect them!

Please Note:

We have numerous security people on site that work hard to ensure that equipment doesn’t go missing, however the Big White Ski Club cannot be held responsible for any lost or stolen equipment.
