The Raven is a short walk to the Gondola which will take you (in just 5 minutes) to the village where you'll find many restaurants, the kids centre and the ski/board school and grocery store.

The Raven at Big White

left on Mar-02-2011

Our family had a great stay at Big White. The skiing was great and all the other activities were so fun. It was a perfect trip. Our condo was spacious and well stocked. The kids enjoyed playing Wii in their downtime. The hot tub on the deck was great after a day on the slopes.
