 About Us

Welcome to our Oasis in Big White. We are a sports loving family of 4, originally from Denmark but have lived abroad since 1992 mainly in Asia but recently moved to Netherlands.

We love to travel and have active holidays - our boys cannot wait until our next trip to Big White. We have travelled the world and been fortunate to have the chance to visit many great places, but when we experienced Big White with some of our good friends, we instantly fell in love with the place and had the best family holiday ever. We love the mountain, the snow ghosts, the champagne powder snow, the many different runs, the fantastic ski school with great instructors. We love the abundence of activities for the kids (...and the more grown-up ´kids´), and the many options for dinner and drinks or the cosy nights in front of the fireplace.

We are pleased that we have the opportunity to share our home away from home with you and we look forward to welcoming you. We are traveling more than 15 hours to get here from Shanghai and we have therefore done our utmost to make the place fully equipped with all we could think of to have an unforgettable time in this fantastic place.

Thank you for visiting our webpage, should you have any questions or special requests please do not hesitate to contact us by clicking the 'Email Owner' buttom. We look forward to welcoming you to our special place at Big White.

The best location at Big White

left on Sep-09-2011

I think this is the best location at Big White. Above all others on the hill (elevation). You ski down to the chair lift and down to the center of the town. True ski-in ski-out. Very nice condo, clean well kept. Had a minor problems with the whirlpool and they fixed right away. This would be the first place I look at, at Big White.
