Another very enjoyable stay in the Raven Penthouse

Aline from Peachland, Canada
Date: Mar-29-2018 for a stay in Mar 2018

This was our second family stay in the Raven Penthouse, and once again, we luxuriated in the spacious comfort of this beautiful condo.

We particularly love the layout, with a large, open living space which allows plenty of room for children to be active when indoors, and space for everyone to spread out. We also enjoy the bedrooms on either side of the living space, creating an aura of privacy for different family groups. The bathrooms are large and the steam showers a delightful luxury. Housekeeping responded promptly when needs arose. Thank you again, Rachael and Rob!

Annual Big White ski trip

Jason from Vancouver, Canada
Date: Feb-27-2018 for a stay in Feb 2018

This place was great space of our annual Big White ski trip. While it sleeps many more, as a group of 4 where everyone wants their own room this place had the best choice of rooms we've seen. Usually we have someone who gets a lesser room but all of these rooms had something to offer. The location allows you to ski in at the end of the day with just a short walk to the lifts.

Our home is modern, stylish and extremely comfortable with much attention paid to detail. It is fully equipped to enable you to have exactly the kind of holiday that you are looking for. There is great open living space for family time and entertaining and areas for those who want private space. Private space for Kids - could be the bunk bedroom  (Double bed over Queen-size and Single over Single) with beanbags and TV with games console. Adults can enjoy 'time out' with a glass of wine on one of the two private decks, or in the steaming hot tub under the stars. There is a 3rd TV in one of the master bedrooms providing an additional quiet and private space. If you love cooking a fully equipped Gourmet kitchen has just about all the equipment you'd have at home and probably more! There is a full sized pool table, loads of sofa space for relaxing by the fire and a huge wall mounted plasma screen TV and stereo. There are also bar stools at the breakfast bar if you'd rather chat and share a drink with the chef. En-suite bathrooms have warm cork floors, and large glass panelled steam shower enclosures. This Penthouse has 2 private & reserved car parking spots and 2 secure lockable Ski storages for guest use.

The Raven is a short walk away from the Happy Valley Adventure area and Lodge. Happy Valley is a perfect location, it's lots of fun and central offering many non-skiing activities including the huge outdoor Skating rink. 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. You are also within easy walking distance of the Mega Coaster tube rides and Cross Country Trails. There are fabulous mountain views from the Penthouse at The Raven and from Happy Valley.

Ski-in, Ski-out - you'll have direct Ski-in access to the ground level of The Raven. Ski-out simply requires leaving the building entrance and a short walk across the road or a walk downhill to the Gondola depending on snow coverage. On a good day you can put your skis on as soon as you have left The building entrance and crossed over the road.

About Us


We travelled to Big White in June 2007 from the UK when we heard all about Big White through friends at home.  The minute we stepped foot on the mountain we knew instantly that this would satisfy all our holiday expectations - pure escapism,  magical surroundings, great activities and facilities.  We were so impressed with the Raven itself that, to cut a long story short, we decided we'd love to have a little piece of this luxury of our own. We think it's one of the best places we've stayed and we hope that you'll feel the same!  Happy Valley enjoys breathtaking mountain views and is peacefully located just below the village - everything is very easy to get to.  We chose our penthouse because we love to holiday in places where we can be as relaxed and as comfortable as we are at home.  Secure parking and internet access are vital for us as sadly work always travels with us!  We also like to know that we can have everything we need close to hand. We believe that our penthouse provides all of this and much more.  Not forgetting of course the fantastic champagne powder and exclusive access to the Ravens indoor pool and gym!

We hope that you'll enjoy Big White and our penthouse as much as we do.

Rachael & Rob

We love our place at Big White - we hope you'll love it too! We love our place at Big White - we hope you'll love it too!
