Big White is a huge hit with families with kids who'd like to spend their vacation with minimum hassle and maximum time on the mountain. Canada's most popular family ski resort is where you can ski powder on reasonably easy slopes from summit to base!
However, it is not just the green runs making for an unforgettable experience for all family members. Big White is extremely family-friendly and thus deserves the full score in the category “family skiing“.
Adventure Park for the Young and the Old
The Adventure Park is located somewhat off the beaten track below the village centre. There is a free gondola that takes you there. The park does not only include the beginner area and the kids centre, there are also tubing lanes, a snowmobile rental, ice-skating rinks, cross-country skiing trails and an ice tower to climb onto.
Great news: There's a green run off every lift, plus there are endless intersecting blue runs, which means there is the chance to wind your way down the mountain on green runs only, if that's what you're after. If not, just cross one of the several green runs and make a turn to the several blues and blacks branching off. Thus, you can go up and down the mountain all together as a family. In addition, the slopes are wide and open, so that orientation is easy and there is always enough space for everyone even during peak season.
Day Care and Ski-In/Ski-Out
What's more is Big White offers day care for children, which allows adults to explore the ski resort “in peace and quiet“. The numerous accommodation options at Big White Village are also worth mentioning, as there are suitable offers for everyone at reasonable prices. Since the majority of rooms and apartments are located directly in the heart of the ski area, there is no need for you to care about how to get to the ski resort. Moreover, there is a mall in the village, where you can buy all essential goods.
