6 Reasons Why Big White Ski Resort Is The Top Family Vacation Destination Year-Round

Big White Ski Resort is recognized as one of Canada’s top family ski resorts for a reason. But while Big White Ski Resort makes for an excellent winter family vacation, the resort is also an ideal destination during the summer season, too. Whether you’re hoping to go skiing with the kids, or mountain biking with your family, Big White has everything you need for a fun family vacation, year-round.

Thinking about booking your next family vacation, but not sure where to pick? Read on to find out our top six reasons why Big White Ski Resort is the ideal family vacation destination year-round.

1. Champagne Powder Snow & Excellent Conditions For Skiing & Snowboarding in The Winter

One of the main reasons why visitors love coming to Big White Ski Resort is because of its champagne powder snow and weather conditions for skiing and snowboarding. Our powdery snow makes for an easier, smoother glide down our hills and trails, and the weather offers the ideal amount of fresh snow during the winter season (Big White gets an average of 7.5 metres of annual snowfall). This means that you and your family can enjoy some of the best conditions for skiing and snowboarding in the world, without taking a trip to the Alps.
