Family Channel Family Day Weekend: The Recap

Posted On: February 14, 2017 |
We partnered with Family Channel for an amazing weekend of family fun, with a full line-ups of events and countless activities for families to enjoy in celebration of BC Family Day Weekend! #bcfamilyday

Over the past three days, Big White Ski Resort and Family Channel wowed resort guests with a jam-packed schedule of events for Family Channel Family Day Weekend. 

On Saturday morning, Quaker Oats helped kick-off the family day weekend festivities with heart-warming bowls of complimentary oatmeal for families to fuel up before hitting the slopes. Guests were thrilled to find the Quaker Oat Lodge set up at the base of Plaza Chair and Ridge Rocket Express, a structure featuring ski-in/ ski-out access and a build-you-own oatmeal toppings bar. The Quaker Oat Lodge was ready to serve every morning Saturday to Monday from 8:00am-1:00pm.

During the day, Big White hosted a very special Family Channel edition of Cruz the Blues, as well as it’s Spectacular Race and Lip Sync battle, hosted by Family Channel star Deepa Prashad. Both events were a chance for families to spend time together off the slopes.
