Good Place to stay

I am booking this unit my third years now. This unit is my first choice as always.View Full Review Owner Has Responded
Perfectly appointed condo with fantastic view and amenities
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver
My family of six thoroughly enjoyed this spectacular condo in the Raven complex at Big White. We could have easily had 2-3 additional people in this unit and still been comfortable. Very spacious living area with a stunning, southern facing view of the mountains. No detail is left out and the owners obviously take great pride in their unit. We'll stay here again.
Great Views, Great Base, Great Location
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Toronto
We've been going to BigWhite for over 8 years and our last three stays have been at the raven - Love it. The condo has a warm, wonderful feel. All the amenities you could want - I never have to worry about not having a utensil, pot or spice, and with 2 teenage sons that's important. Raven staff are just wonderful! Raven - just needs another sofa or loveseat, more seating room is needed.
A FlipKey verified reviewer from edmonton
got there first day and just relaxed in the hot tub which was awesome and well kept and great view from balcony. the price was right, the place was clean, we had something wrong with our hot tub at one point but the guy was there to fix it that day! the location was awesome. i could only ask to be able to ski\board from my door instead of walkin the 2 blocks, heh.. we couldnt complain. the only thing was that the main bath could use a lock and the glass door on the half room was kinda pointless but all in all it was a good trip. the sweet was great with all it had to offer and it was very relaxing (besides getting sick)
A trip to remember!
Leanne from Ontario
We were very happy with the condo. It was very clean with a beautiful kitchen. Modern and up to date. We loved using the hot tub after being outside all day. I don't think we can book without that in the future. Only thing that could be changed is lack of seating in the living room. There was only 3 of us staying there and it can accommodate up to six. One sofa would not be comfortable for everyone. Ski in was perfect which made up for ski out (short 5 minute walk). Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.
great place to stay at Big White
A FlipKey verified reviewer from calgary
Condo was fantastic and larger than we expected upon arrival. Great having the hot tub ready after the long day of travelling to get here. Room was a little messy at check in (sticky counters!!) and we couldn't get the internet to work, but overall can't complain. Location is better than you'd expect - very close to the gondola and you can ski right to the back door. Had some issues with *very* noisy neighbors despite the curfews and notices posted everywhere on noise, but security at Big White was very efficient. Highly recommended lodging!!
fine, but not fabulous
Gordon from AB
nice condo, well appointed, lots of room, but very poor sound insulation between units, lots of party noise from other units, not sure I would stay here again. Crowds of drunken youth throughout the resort which is supposedly "family friendly".
good time at the Raven
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Kelowna
We stayed at the Raven over the Christmas holidays. It was a lot of fun at Big White! The condo was great except for the fact that it requires more furniture in the living room. It is supposed to sleep 8 but only has seating for 5 people on uncomfortable furniture. The kitchen is very well appointed. All in all the unit and surroundings were very nice.
Need to stay longer next time.
Fairelepont from WA
We loved the condo and its location (near the skating rink and Gondola). Very well equipped. We were only able to ski 2 days and unfortunately 1 of the days was "white out."
