Improved-banner-icon.jpg Big White's Award Winning Kids' Centre Expands

Plans are underway to expand our award-winning Kids' Centre into the area that was formally the Loose Moose Emporium. This addition will provide our youngest skiers aged 3-4 with much-needed room to play and prepare for the start of lessons. Children 5-7 years of age will also now have their own area in the Kids' Centre.

Traffic flow will be greatly enhanced, allowing for new exits onto the snow for children in lessons and less congestion for parents when registering their children.  Registration itself will be more efficient with three more sign-in sites, so dropping off children will be faster and easier even on the busiest days.

And don't worry - you'll still be able to shop at the Loose Moose Emporium, which is moving to a new location within the Village Centre Mall.

This Snowcat is specifically designed for grooming in the terrain park, with extra lift on the tiller and extra functionality on the blade making it ideal for building jumps and features in the terrain park. The resort now has a total of eight frontline Snowcats working across the mountain every night during the winter season to make conditions ideal for skiing and boarding.
