Property description

Big White is a family-oriented WINTER PLAYGROUND recognized by Ski Canada Magazine as having the ' BEST FAMILY SKI-ING '.

WELCOME to our place, Raven 208, located in the centre of Happy Valley offering outstanding condo living space, contemporary style and luxury. It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom SPACIOUS, luxurious condo.

The location of Raven 208 was chosen because of its perfect balance of views, proximity to ski lifts and amenities and the convenience of being SKI-IN/OUT.
It comes with its own PRIVATE DECK and HOT TUB for star gazing and total relaxation after a day of ski and snow activity.
There are even BOOT DRYERS fitted for cosy dry boots every morning!

Family and friends will come together in the spacious living area to enjoy OPEN PLAN LIVING, cooking, dining and relaxing in front of the roaring fire.

You'll be watching the 42” plasma TV, DVD player and stereo whilst lounging in the big, squashy sofas for total ‘feet up’ comfort.
Oversized windows allow you to enjoy the magnificent SNOW TOPPED VIEWS with comfortable geothermal underfloor heating throughout.
There's also FREE WIRELESS INTERNET access for all your needs along with a WIRELESS KEYBOARD on the new slim PS3 - check your emails, surf the net or WATCH ENDLESS MOVIES after a hard day on the slopes.

The kitchen with its granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances probably boasts more equipment than you might have at home for dining and entertaining – should you wish to use it!

There’s also a personalised grocery selection service available along with READY MADE MEAL DELIVERIES for those who want to take the strain out of catering.

Raven 208 comes with free access to The Raven’s PRIVATE INDOOR POOL AND FITNESS GYM.

Savour the views with a glass of fizz from your private deck and steaming hot tub.

Enjoy Big White accommodation at its best!

And it 's only three minutes walk to the ADVENTURE AREA beside the Happy Valley Day Lodge with the skating rink, tubing, ice climbing, beginner ski area, snow mobiling, horse sleighs and dog sledding. Just so much to do!

KIDS CENTRE
When all you want to do is get up on the mountain, don't worry about your kids. Why not drop them at a place where they'll have the time of their lives, and you can ski or board all day long worry free!
Ski Canada rates this centre as the “Best resort feature for kids in Canada” and the UK’s Daily Telegraph rated it one of the TOP FIVE IN THE WORLD!
There are so many activities for the kids and lots of them are FREE!

When you walk into the Kids Centre you’re likely to ask, “What smells so darned good in here?” Well, that would be the on-site kitchen where their very own chef is hard at work.
The instructors make the whole time such fun with lots of activities and fun along with great coaching on the slopes on a 3 to 1 ratio!

SUMMER FUN

Come along and experience the MOUNTAIN PEACE. It’s beautifully cool with stunning views of the Monashee Mountains.

HIKE or HORSEBACK RIDE on a mountain trail and catch the fragrance of Ponderosa pines and see the many different wildlife species which inhabit the area.

Or CYCLE along the Historic Kettle Valley Railway with views of the Myra Canyon.

Get away from the crowds, but still be in easy reach of Canada’s Fruit Basket and the heart of the west’s wine region – visit the Okanagan's WINE FESTIVALS in July
or hit the fairways with 19 courses to choose from, it’s a must-play destination on every GOLF enthusiast's list!

Vineyards, orchards, semi-desert terrain, rolling hills, and expansive lakes make the golf courses in the area some of the most PICTURESQUE in the country.

Kelowna is perfect for a wide variety of WATER SPORTS - including water-skiing, sail-boarding, scuba-diving and swimming on the magnificent lake.
The FINE SANDY BEACHES offer a great place to spend the day; all have picnic tables, shady trees and plenty of sunshine.

Kelowna’s many quality RESTAURANTS offer a variety of fine dining experiences.

Then it's only a short trip up the hill to relax in cooler climes and sleep with the RESTFUL MOUNTAIN ATMOSPHERE.

The Raven sits in the perfect Happy Valley location.

Happy Valley offers many non-skiing activities including the huge outdoor Skating rink and the Mega Coaster tube rides and Cross Country Trails.

From The Raven it’s a short walk to the Gondola and a free ride (just a couple of minutes) to ski lifts and the village centre where you'll find shops and many restaurants, the Kids Center and the ski/board school.

Skiers and non-skiers alike can enjoy the sleigh rides and day spa.

Tired and sore? Book ahead for a professional massage, Swedish, and Acupressure techniques, all in the privacy of your chalet.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We love it being ski-in/out. Great kid's centre. The resort is perfect for family ski-ing and entertainment with a wonderful condo to relax in.

Why the Owner Chose Big White:
We chose The Raven for all the advantages of a purpose built resort. The whole experience is 'joined-up'! From the amazingly efficient computer aided equipment hire to get you out there asap, to the extensive and integrated variety of slopes. All of which are clearly marked as groomed or not for complete choice of snow experience. The kids centre staff couldn't be more friendly and out to make the holiday a great time for children from the ski-ing in small appropriate groups to the craft activities and hot chocolate for a break in-between. Every session there's a sense of progress as skills are mastered and ticked on each kid's Achievement Card. When completed they move onto the next level, but still within the larger group of friends made! Leaving you free to enjoy the slopes with the free ski guiding from friendly residents with useful tips on restaurants and places to go. The lifties are so friendly and everyone's enjoying their time, it's a perfect holiday! My family laugh, but I love the free tissues so readily available at the bottom of every lift with bins beside, not to mention toilets on the slopes and day lodges with cafes where it's fine to eat your own snacks and enjoy the free water! Beats any alpine resort we've tried!!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our place has excellent views, is close to the ski lifts and other amenities along with the convenient ski-in, ski-out access. It had been spaciously designed with acute attention to detail, luxury and comfort. With its own private deck and hot tub for star gazing and total relaxation after a day of ski and snow activity - What more could you ask for !!
