Big White ski holidays are extremely child-friendly, and the diverse ski area receives lots of fluffy white powder.

Big White strives to be the world’s best family resort. The whole set-up aims to make your holiday as easy as possible, with kids’ clubs, crèches and après activities all provided. Alongside its family appeal, this is also a great resort for all abilities.

The snow is all-natural, and there’s plenty of it - Big White is an excellent place to try powder skiing for the first time. While the kids are having lessons, parents can enjoy the backcountry or ski everything from steeps to rolling cruisers.

The modern village has been designed for maximum convenience. Restaurants serve tasty food at sensible prices and Snowshoe Sam’s is our bar of choice, while Happy Valley Adventure Park offers everything from tubing and skating to an ice-climbing tower.

There’s more than enough to keep you busy in Big White, or you could explore further by adding Sun Peaks and Silver Star to an Okanagan Explorer Ski Safari.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.
