    Wife can't go to the states.

    I would love to ski in Colorado one day though.

    Looking at going after New Years, take the kids out of school for a few days catch some short lines and fresh tracks.

    Seriously where else should I consider going? What might be a better choice than Big White?

    It's built for people from Toronto. What do you expect?

    I love Big White and would recommend it to anyone. Great family mountain with tons of trees to blast through or you can stick to marked runs and have a good time as well. Lower village has ice skating, horse rides, tubing, icewall climbing... If you check dates and it shows unavailable it might be due to minimum night stays. In peak season you need to book 3-5 nights. If you decide to go there let me know and I can give more info. If it's midweek and you have a crew of four or less I can let you use my place.

    If the village experience is a high priority then Sun peaks would be a good option. I've never riden there but I hear good things, lots of terrain. I go in the summer for DH biking and have lots of fun.

    Apex is in Penticton but it's a small mountain with very limited village. Only four chairs but it's known for being steep if that's your thing. Peak to parking lot in six minutes tops.

    Silver Star is the other good spot in the Okanagan. Awesome MTN that suites skiers more but still fun. Lots of runs, skating, bowling alley but is pretty pricey compared to BW.

    Big White it is. I've been there before and loved it. None of those other option attract me more.

    Thank you for your generosity, I'll invite the gang over and have a party at your pad. I assume you have a good cleaning service lined up, right?

    Ya that would be sweet. I'd suggest looking at The Inn at Big White. Good prices, outdoor pool and hot tub, restaurant, bar and a thirty second walk to village and chairs lifts. It's well kept and clean.

    I tracked down @Lars@Lars ‘ house pretty easily. His shed is something of a tourist attraction. The travel guides call it “The Shed of a Thousand Over Cuts”.
