School’s looking pretty cool, slopeside at Canada’s favourite family resort, Big White Ski Resort. There’s a huge variety of terrain, in perfect snow conditions, guaranteeing the best outdoor classroom ever!
Whatever your ability, whether you ski, board or want to try Nordic skiing, the Snowsports School has an excellent blackboard of improvement lessons and programs for all ages and abilities.
For the kids
The Big White Kids Centre is the ultimate playground. The little ones will be up and going on skis or snowboards in no time. Safety is just as important as fun, so the Kids Centre provides complimentary ski helmets to all children in its care.
The Tot Town Daycare Centre caters for children aged 18 months to 5 years. Kiddies that just want to get their first taste of a snow holiday can be tempted with snowplay. The more adventurous can start to get their ski legs. Oh, the bonus is mom and dad time to get child-free ski time too!

And the young at heart, Big White’s Adult Snowsports School can help. The resort has built an enviable reputation for specialist programs and training sessions,under the direction of some of Canada’s most experienced, highest qualified CSIA Level 4 instructors.
Learn how to master the moguls and deep powder snow. From first-timers to experts, there’s a learning experience for everyone.
If you are a beginner, the purpose built Happy Valley Adventure Park is the ideal venue to conquer the first skills.
Other ski school programs
Both programs include a 2 hour group lesson, followed by a wonderful gourmet lunch at the Kettle Valley Steakhouse. You can choose between skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing group lessons.
We also highly recommend the well established “Masters Week” – a 5 day program, which has been offered for a number of years, and sees many ‘repeat’ guests return year after year to participate in Masters Weeks.
Designed specifically for passionate skiers aged 50+, this week-long program combines the best skiing Big White has to offer with a series of exclusive après events including wine tastings, evening sleigh rides through the magical, lantern-lit winter wonderland, and more. Masters Week is offered 3 times per season, usually in late January, February and March.
