A successful Family Day Weekend

Events for families happened all weekend at Big White.

What an adventure this weekend at Big White.

For Family Day Weekend, Big White Ski Resort held a ton of family-friendly events which families across the region came to enjoy.

Brian Bowman came to the mountain with his family and family friends.

“Basically it’s about the kids this weekend,” he said.

Although the numbers aren’t in for how many people attended the event, Bethan Wetheral, guest services, and events manager said it was a successful weekend.

Big White partnered with Family Channel to wow resort guests with a jam-packed schedule, kicking off on Saturday morning with a special Family Channel edition of Cruz the Blues, an Amazing-Race style Spectacular Race and an incredible Lip Sync battle in the Village Centre, hosted by Family Channel star Deepa Prashad.

In the evening, the stars of Family Channel’s Backstage, Josh Bogert, McKenzie Small and Aviva, took time to meet and greet fans at Big White’s famous Carnival Night. Young fans came out to say hi to their favourite Family Channel stars, grab an autograph and take home great prizes.

Events continued through Sunday and Monday as Big White hosted a Family Channel concert in the Big White Tube Park. Singing sensations Bogert, Small and Aviva took to the stage. On Monday, Big White offered all B.C. residents 50 per cent off lift tickets to support local families.

“BC Family Day is important and special to B.C. – it’s a chance for families to spend time and connect with one another, as well as a chance for BC locals to celebrate their province with one another. We were thrilled to offer a weekend full of activities and events for all the families that came to visit us here at Big White,” said senior vice president Michael Ballingall.
