Let Your Kids Discover Their ‘Snow Skills’ This Spring Break!

Thinking about what to do with the kids this Spring Break? Why not bring them up to Big White Ski Resort and take us up on our Discover Package, which is designed for completely new skiers & snowboarders? Available in half-day ($59), full-day ($99) and four-day ($219) options with all rentals & lift passes included. For everyone from the age of 4 & up, Discover will have you ready for the full mountain experience in no time! In fact, if your instructor thinks you’re not stopping and turning safely by the end of your Discover Program then you can come back, free of charge, until you can.

Now come with us on a journey of discovery with the Big White Ski & Board School and Lucas!
Lucas is an exchange student from Brazil who had never seen snow before, and wanted to pursue his dream of learning to snowboard. He was enrolled in our 4-day Discover program and had his progress documented. Each day he embarked on a two-hour lesson with our friendly and professional instructor, Alyn Nash.

*Watch these 4 videos to see how you can progress from complete beginner to shredder in 8 hours!*

Day One
On the first day, you will learn all about the gear you’re about to be using for the next four days. Basic mobility will be covered with a focus on how to turn and stop safely in preparation for riding the chairlift. You will be a level one skier or snowboarder.

Day Two
Your skills from day one will be consolidated and you will progress your turning skills further, getting ready for the move away from our learning slope in Happy Valley and onto the chairlift! You will be a level 2 skier or snowboarder.

Day Three
Up the mountain you go! The terrain will be a little bit steeper, but you will now have the confidence and skills to tackle it. By this stage you would have learnt how to turn and will be working on linking your turns down the run, further building your confidence. Green runs will be the flavor of the day, and you may be a level 3 skier or snowboarder by this stage.

Day Four
On the final day you will further your proficiency in linking turns, and work on things like balance and body control, stance, and edging. By the end of the lesson you will have the right skills under your belt and the confidence to head out on your own or with friends and explore the mountain.

If you are hungry for more great value lessons and have just completed a Discover Half Day or Full Day Package, you can continue onto our Next Step Program. It is designed solely for people who have just done a Discover Program and includes a two hour lesson, rentals and a lift pass for the day, all for $89.

Please contact the Big White Ski & Board School for more information – we’d love to hear from you!
