February Ski Trip

Brendan from Calgary, Canada
Date: Feb-12-2018 for a stay in Feb 2018

Our group's annual ski trip made it's first trip to Big White and loved our time there. The condo was spacious and well equipped. The ski-in / ski-out access is simple and easy. The hot tub and steam shower were also perfect after a long day on the hill.

Great location and amenities

Christopher from Redmond, United States
Date: Jan-01-2018 for a stay in Dec 2017

Our family of six had a fantastic time at this property. The kitchen has all the equipment you need for cooking. The table is nice and big for meals and boardgames. There is enough room that we had space to spread out when people wanted to do their own thing. Plenty of closet and drawer space. Heated bathroom floor is a nice touch for cold toes after skiing.

We used the hot tub every night - and one night the hot tub maintenance guy came by to check the chemicals so it was nice to see it's well maintained.

The location is definitely ski-in, and there is a rack for leaving skis while you're at lunch. It's almost ski-out too - you have to cross a road and then you can ski down to Lara's Gondola (with maybe 10 yards of walking/scooting about halfway down over a flat stretch).

As for Big White overall, it has events going on every night (family trivia, etc.) and there is a skating rink too. Definitely a family-friendly resort.

We had a couple questions while staying there and the management was very responsive. If we come back to Big White we'd be enthusiastic about renting this property again.

Location

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 Mega Coaster Tube run, Cross Country skiing and much more. 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 and grocery store.

Ski-in, Ski-out - There is direct Ski-in access to The Raven and Ski-out simply requires a short across the road, or 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 Raven entrance and crossed over the road.

About Us

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.
