Big White condo description

'The Powder Den' is a luxury condo in 'The Crescent' a 10 unit boutique condo building situated in White Forest Estates, an area of upscale homes ideally situated on the mountain and only 5 minutes to Town Centre. The Happy Valley lighted ski trail is right outside the backdoor and leads directly to town centre and the lifts~true ski-in ski-out!

In our Guests own words (see our reviews) The Powder Den is ideal for romantic get-away, Girl's get-away, Tourist's without a car, 55+, adventure seeker's and families with teens or young children.

Our unit is tastefully decorated with leather furniture, original artwork, vintage ski posters and of course a decorated Christmas Tree. The kitchen is stocked with basic cooking supplies and everything you need for gourmet cooking. The 9' ceilings give an airy feeling and the entry and bathroom floors are heated slate. All counters are granite, Stainless Steel Appliances and Kohler and Grohe fixtures. The private hot tub and private steam shower are a real treat after a hard days skiing and you'll drift off to sleep in the beautiful beds topped with feather beds and down duvets and be ready for the next days activities!

Our Guest's have mentioned how much they appreciate having robes to use especially for the hot tub. This was a must have for us when we were outfitting The Powder Den because our experience was that very few ski rental's supplied them and they are one of the things you don't want to pack because of the bulk.

We have tried to think of everything that would ensure that our guest's have the best ski vacation ever!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: My husband is a Realtor and I work as his assistant. We live on the waterfront in East Sooke on Vancouver Island with our Standard Poodle Liza. When ski season is over we love to kayak, hike and garden.

              Why the Owner Chose Big White:
              We bought this property because of the true ski-in/ski-out and that it was a small (only 10 units) upscale condo in an area close to town centre yet not right in town centre.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We can walk to town centre for shopping etc. but are not disturbed by the rowdyness of being right in TC. Of course the most important is that we are truly ski-in/ski-out!
