We've been taking our three kids on snow sport vacations since they were very small, so we know about the challenges of making it a great vacation for everybody. And now the kids are practically adults, we appreciate being able to range far and wide over the mountains all together, or in break-away groups.
Between us we've left snowy tracks in many countries includling France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Japan and the UK. There are plenty of great place round the world, but Big White is our dream snow sport destination for vacations with family and/or friends. And our penthouse is the dream base.
Everything in the resort and in our penthouse is designed to maximize pleasure time and minimize hassles.
Beautiful Views, some repair needed
Jennifer from North Vancouver, Canada
Date: Jan-22-2015 for a stay in Jan 2015
We loved staying at the condo. Was a wonderful unit for our young family of 4. A little far from the lift to be towing the young ones plus all the gear. The deck views from the hot tub overlooked Happy Valley and the stunning Monashee Mountain range. This was a highlight of our vacation!
There were a few maintenance issues that need to be taken care of. The kitchen sink faucet was broken and sprayed all over the place. The dishwasher's lower rack wheel was broken off. The living room ottoman was broken with a few bent nails (a little dangerous with the little ones running around). The main bathroom bathtub faucet was incorrectly installed and had two "off positions", and hot water was a trickle. The stove and oven took forever to warm up. The TV screen had red blotches. The fitness facility was tiny and not really useable, and the pool's heater was broken when we stayed. The common areas of the building such as the parking garage and elevators could use some cleaning more regularly.View Full Review Owner Has Responded
Beautiful View… But long walk and hard to find 'ski in route'
FlymaRocket from Sylvan Lake, Canada
Well it is absolutely beautiful, The view of course is amazing. The kitchen is well equipped! We brought things like tin foil, spices, coffee filters, and it was all provided! The knives are also super sharp! BONUS! The rooms are all grouped together which we were a little disappointed in , as we thought they would at least be spaced out. Hot tub view .. amazing! The elevator sucks, it is absolutely horrid. .. and there is a lot of codes to memorize. The SKI in SKI out is not necessarily true. It is a good location at the bottom of the hill and you are close to the gondola for a quick walk downhill, to the skating rink and tubing park and happy valley lodge. We are a group of snowboarders and could not find a route to ski ( board) in. We arrived only 1 hour early and the codes were not changed, and the emergency on call number went straight to messaging. Thankfully we found a building maintenance manager who helped us out and once the emergency number called us back, the lady was VERY nice. Overall the location is fine, we are young and the walking is only a slight convince after a long day of powder runs…… I personally would try a different place next time, but this one is nothing short of awesome, and as long as you are prepared from a quick walk UP and DOWN ,you will not be disappointed.
Amazing spot for family ski vacation
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Sarnia Ontario
I have to say that we where more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this condo. We had finally gotten all the kids together for this vacation and when we got there we found the condo well equipped for all our needs,it was clean and very comfortable. The service we got was a phone call immediately after we checked in welcoming us to the condo. The vacation package left for us was very informative and the cookies that where left for us where more than appreciated and a nice touch. The location of this condo was perfect for us and is just a short walk from the gondola to take us to the village for the lifts. We where able to ski into our condo but that took us a day to find the way to do that. All in all we had a great vacation and will return here for another stay. The only complaint we had was on Friday night which is cheap ski night the unit beside and below us was rented to a large group of University students who where extemely noisy in the hot tub all night and very rude when we asked them to keep it down as we had a flight to catch early that morning. It would be nice to see a little more security around on the cheap night as it seems the screening for numbers in the condo were a little lax for this unit!
Very nice but a little disappointed
Flatland Spring breaker from Manitoba
The condo had a few issues, such as the living room pull out couch was broken. Our youngest had to sleep on the floor next to our bed as the teenager ended up taking her bed. Also, the TV dvd sound system was not working properly.
Loved the heated cork floors!
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Vancouver BC
The place was great overall - kichen especially well stocked and everything worked as it should. The hot tub was great with an awesome view and super hot temp. Would have been nice to have a little map to explain the ski-in and ski-out paths. We eventually figured it out.
