This is what our past guests have said about Blacksmith Lodge...

  • Stayed for 2 weeks and just had to come back again! Blacksmith lodge has beautiful furnishings, is decorated to an unbeliavable standard and had the best ski access you could imagine. The owners have done a terrific job in making sure everything you need is to hand. The hot tub is soooooo relaxing after a hard day on the slopes and you have to see the views for yourself. (Shaun)
  • We had a wonderful week staying at your property in Big White!  Your home is beautiful and extremely well maintained – very, very clean.  The beds are really comfortable; in fact, can you tell us what brand/model the mattresses are (I forgot to check before we left)?  My husband particularly enjoyed the high quality hot tub (Tracey)
  • We wanted to thank you for sharing your place. We absolutely loved it! (Pauline)

About Us

Nick and Irma hugging a snowghost Nick and Irma hugging a snowghost

Hi, Thanks for visiting our Big White pages.

We hope you love Blacksmith Lodge and Big White as much as we do! We live in the Netherlands, near Amsterdam, and generally spend about 50-60 days a year skiing & snowboarding in Big White. We have a 5 year old boy and 2 year old girl who love being in the snow. Our boy is now a "Hot Shot" in the ski program, and our girl is just starting to ski.

We both work for Airlines; Irma is a stewardess with KLM and Nick is a longhaul pilot for British Airways. On our travels we've been to lots of ski resorts and nothing comes close to the value-for-money, powder snow and convenience of Big White. Please let us know if you have any comments or suggestions. We'd love to hear from you!

Happy skiing

Nick & Irma

Blacksmith Lodge

Jeffrey from Kelowna, Canada
Date: Jan-24-2015 for a stay in Jan 2015

Room enough for the family and kids to have a great ski/snowboard vacation! Excellent hot tub! Bed mattresses could use an update but were adequate. The place was a bit dusty overall. Cleaning could use some "attention to detail". The snow plow had piled snow high at the ski out so we had to climb the "mountain" with our equipment to get onto the run. Minor annoyance. Overall, good place for a winter vacation with the family!

Thank you for a perfect stay! We loved it! It's a good ski-in/ski-out but not the best. But still pretty good for us.

My family and I had a wonderful time at Big White. The condo was a perfect fit and had all the amenities you could ask for.The proximity of the place was outstanding. We were there for Christmas and believe me, it was a very white one with all the snow. The hot tub on the deck was a perfect finish to a great day of skiing. The bedrooms were spacious clean and comfortable,the only problem was we could not see the spectacular views because there was some much snow plied up.They even had a fake Christmas tree there which was a nice touch. Nick and Irma thanks.
