Great Weekend

left on Feb-24-2014

Great kitchen layout and layout worked well for our two families. Unit is clean and it's nice having a double garage (which means you can't really play pingpong). Would stay there again if it had just one more room (rec room for kids).

Perfect for 2 families with kids

left on Feb-28-2013

We had a wonderful time. The ski-in, ski-out options was very convenient, as was the shuttle when we did want to walk down to the village. The home was very clean and well appointed. We would definitely stay here again.

Great stay in a great vacation home

left on Feb-07-2013

This was our 4th stay at aspens 4, and as always it was a real treat. The ski in/out access is second to none and the condo is spacious, clean and nicely furnished. Everything you need for a great vacation at one of the finest family ski resorts in the world!

Great family time at Big White!

left on Jan-17-2013

The house was very clean and well equipped with many unexpected extras (e.g. tooth paste, makeup removal wipes, spice rack, cloth drying rack). It was super-convenient to leave all ski & snowboard equipment inside the attached heated garage which was code-accessed (no need too bring keys). It was toddler-friendly with provision of cot, highchair & plastic cups /bowls. Location was great for ski-in and ski-out, but it was a long walk down to Village Centre Mall. We did managed to catch the free village shuttle sometimes.

Fantastic Big White Location

left on Jan-03-2013

The Thorsens' town house was spectacular. Everyone of the 4 bathrooms has a heated floor and the steam shower was great. Having a private hot tub and bbq is also a nice convenience. The kitchen was very well equiped and had tons of counter space. Best part is the proximity to the hill just 50 ft from your front door. Thanks Thorsens, we will be sure to come back.

Beautiful home with an excellent location for skiing.

left on Apr-01-2012

Great comfortable home for two families, with a very well-stocked kitchen and nice furnishings. Table tennis in the heated garage was a great bonus. Location is excellent for getting on and off the mountain quickly.

Lovely house, well equipped and very cosy

left on Jan-25-2012

The house was well stocked and furnished. It was nice to arrive and have the fire place going after a very long flight from australia. Location was good once we got used to catching the bus. Maybe the book with the restaurants is a little outdated, but no problem. My only comment would be that the house needs a little better dust and vacuum and there a few light bulbs that need changing.

Home sweet home!

left on Jan-06-2012

This place truly has all the comforts of home. The kitchen is well stocked with every small or large appliance you need. Beds are comfy. Nice, big bathrooms. Great, well-maintained hot tub with a wonderful view. Housekeeping could use a little work: very dusty, and the rugs seemed like there had been pets prior to our stay. The kitchen faucet was broken which was incredibly annoying. The lefthand sink was leaking from the drain insert. Great ski in ski out, but a ways from the village. All in all, a wonderful place to stay. Would definitely stay there again!!

Family Ski Vacation

left on Mar-17-2011

Loved this place had everything you need at your finger tips, the ski in/ski out was great just a 10 second walk from the door. What i loved the most is how I was able to find everything in the kitchen it was all organized so well and they didn't forget anything you needed a utensil or casserole dish they had it.We will be back again.
