The former president of Big White Ski Resort has suddenly died.

The Plimmer and Schumann family announce the death of Peter Robert Schumann, who died suddenly Friday, Aug. 26, at his home at Big White Ski Resort, according to a Facebook post from the ski resort.

He was born May 13, 1951, in Adelaide, South Australia. His father, Desmond Schumann, is credited with helping shape the resort into what it is today.

Schumann retired from the president position in 2014.

"The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the Big White fire department first responders, B.C. ambulance and the Kelowna General Hospital emergency room technicians, nurses and doctors for their professional care extended to Mr. Schumann," according to the post.

A memorial will be held for Schumann at a later date.
