Pack the ski gear, clothes, bathing suits and gremlins of course, and head for Kelowna’s Big White Ski Resort this season. Make a quick grocery and refreshment stop enroute, or if preferred, the kitchen can be stocked upon arrival at Big White accommodations at Sundance Resort, including ski condos, townhouses, cabins and chalets. Flying in? No problem. Airport transfers with grocery stops are available as well.
Location is everything and Sundance at Big White Ski Resort has the best spot on the hill. Located just steps from the Big White village center, Sundance Resort has true ski-in/ski-out access. Ski in from the Sundance Run and ski out to two high speed chair lifts – the Bullet and the Black Forest Express. Simply gear up and go.
Sundance at Big White accommodations are fully equipped for your family ski vacation right down to the corkscrew. Some units even have board games and toys for the little ones. Watch the children’s faces light up as they discover all the amenities of Club Sundance: an outdoor heated salt-water swimming pool, bullet waterslide, hot tubs, children’s play area, foosball, the latest Play Station games, movie theatre with nightly movies, pool table, fitness room, sauna, and special kid’s programs. All of this just steps from the front door! Rick Haylor from Maui Hawaii writes “My family and I have been coming to Sundance Resort since its opening in Feb ’04. My twins are 8 years old and just love this place. There is so much for them to do it really makes it easy on us to relax – knowing the kids are swimming, playing games, foosball, pool etc. I recommend this resort to anyone who is looking for a wonderful winter vacation and terrific accommodations.”
At Big White Ski Resort it is all about the snow – 750 cm of champagne powder annually. With 18 marked runs for skiing and snowboarding over 2834 skiable acres, Big White has the second largest skiable terrain in British Columbia and 13 lifts to lift 28,000 skiers & boarders per hour. If the kids (or the adults) need a few lessons to get them going, Big White Ski & Board School instructors are fabulous and programs even include a hot lunch. Big White Kids Camp offers daycare services for the wee little ones while parents take in the champagne powder at Big White. If cross country skiing is of more interest, over 25 km of Nordic trails weave through the spectacular countryside.
Of course, Big White offers much more than just skiing & snowboarding. Tubing at the Mega Coaster Tube Park is the most popular kids activity in the evening. But pond hockey and skating are a close second. There are also Mini-Z Snowmobiles to play on. After the festivities, hot chocolate and a cozy, horse drawn sleigh ride await. All of this takes place in Happy Valley, accessible by Gondola from the Big White Village Center. For the truly adventurous family, outback snowmobile tours, snowshoeing tours, and dog-sledding are also available.
Partaking of all that Sundance and Big White Ski Resort have to offer will require fueling the gremlins often. Sundance Resort accommodations have fully-equipped kitchens, however, remember that Mom is on vacation to, so the odd meal out will be well appreciated. Breakfast is best at The Globe Café at Trapper’s Crossing, the Big White Market Deli – a favorite for lunch, and a stay at Big White would not be complete without dinner at the Kettle Valley Steakhouse and Wine Bar. Sundance Resort offers babysitting services for parents to enjoy some couple time dining out together and Big White’s pizza delivered to the unit is perfect for the kids! Should Snowshoe Sam’s be a venue of choice, be sure to order their ‘Gunbarrel Coffee’, poured down a gunbarrel into a snifter and lit on fire for a spectacular show.
Sundance at Big White Ski Resort is a sure bet for an awesome family ski vacation this season. For further information and reservations, visit sundancebigwhite.com or call 1.866.491.7544.
