As the countdown continues for all of us to Jet set off to Big White the boys are becoming more excited.They have been checking out the web site for all the great activities available to them, apart from all the great skiing, things such as the kids ski school having its own ski run without any adults, apart from the instructors.

The Best Place to Stand

Skiing is a pretty dynamic sport, the snow conditions change throughout the day, the slope varies from run to run and the weather is also a pretty big factor that you often need to adjust to.  However, even with all these inconsistent elements there’s one consistent feeling that you can try to create that will help you deal with whatever the mountain throws at you.  Simply put, it’s standing in the middle of your downhill ski.

Big White for Three Generations

Well the real countdown is on, only 47 more sleeps until we arrive in Big White.  The kids are looking at the Website daily and have never seen so much snow growing up in Australia, and this early in the season.  The list of what to take is already well on the way, and so are questions from the kids, “how long will it take to get there” asked Nick, he’s my impatient one.  “How long are the runs and are there any jumps” asked Bradley, “the trees are different to our trees at the snow” was another question from Bradley, he is my more inquisitive and observant one.  Dave (Dad) is the sensible one, he is thinking what games, music and movies can we load onto electronic devises, along with inflight entertainment, for the flight over, as the excitement rises for us all.  Me, I am thinking I might need a new pair of Ski Boots, should I buy them here or there??
