1. Re: child care in the resort?

We just returned from a vacation at Big White and only have positive things to say about the family friendliness of Big White.

The childcare at Big White can broken down in to 2 components - daycare and ski lessons.

Children can participate in the ski lessons starting at age 4. There are half day and full day lessons available. Lunch is included for the full day. Children aged 4-6 are grouped together and aged 7-12 are grouped together - based on ability. The kids centre is in the middle of the village. A full day is from 9:45 to 3:15. The quality of the teaching is top notch. Note: children must be 7 years old for snowboarding lessons.

The resort also offers daycare for children 18 months to 5 years. And though we didn't utilize the daycare I would think it would be similar in quality to the ski school - excellent. This service appeared to only be used for children too young to ski.

In addition they offer programs in the evening where children can be dropped off to participate in an evening program with other children (i.e. dinner and tubing, or dinner and wall climbing). There is a fee for this. Dinner and tubing - including the tubing pass was $45.

Every evening there are activities planned for kids and families - carnival nights, Wii nights, crafts.

Tip: when looking at accommodation remember that ski in/ski out might not work well if you have a baby in tow. Look for something right in the village or just across the street or right at the base of Happy Valley.
