I learned to snowboard at Big White 16 years ago. I vaguely recall spending a morning with an excellent instructor before venturing out on my own to test my newfound skills. I was motivated to learn snowboarding so that I could teach my three young children to board, something they had been begging me to do.
Being from Vancouver we had easy access to both Cypress and Grouse Mountain to spend all our spare time on the slopes. Grouse’s Y2 Play Pass became a must-have for our family for several years, allowing us to become proficient at snowboarding and enjoying hours of quality time together.
