Sunny, private, and super convenient
EDWARD from SEATTLE, United States
Date: Feb-23-2015 for a stay in Feb 2015
This is a great place to stay at Big White: super convenient for skating, tubing and Nordic skiing, and the upper village via the gondola, and your car stays parked in the underground garage the entire time. We love the southern aspect of this condo: lots of sunshine and views of Happy Valley and the Monashees'. This is our third visit at the Timbers, and our18th year of visiting Big White. You could spend your entire time indoors at this place. High quality for everything. We will be back next year!!!View Full Review
Awesome place, best ski in/ski out location
Chris from Calgary, Canada
Date: Jan-26-2015 for a stay in Jan 2015
It was our first trip to Big White and it was amazing. This property was in the perfect location, the ski in and out was super simple and straight forward, and when we wanted to walk anywhere for food or drinks, we found that we had by far the easiest and shortest distance to walk of almost any other location on the hill. The unit had everything we needed, the hot tub and steam shower made relaxing after the slopes a breeze. We even extended our stay an extra night because we were enjoying everything so much. We are already planning our next trip and will only stay at this unit.View Full Review Owner Has Responded
