Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are Rob and Rachael and we live in the Cotswolds in the UK. We traveled to Big White in 2007 after hearing about it through friends at home. The minute we stepped foot on the mountain we knew instantly that this would be a wonderful place to stay – total escape, magical surroundings, great activities and facilities. We were so impressed with Big White and the Raven building in particular that, to cut a long story short, we decided we’d like to have a little piece of this luxury for ourselves. Perhaps we might get to live there one day – roll on retirement!
Why the Owner Chose Big White: We chose our penthouse at The Raven because we love to stay in places where we have private space and where we can be as relaxed and as comfortable as we feel at home. Everything we need is close to hand and all the extras including the magnificent views, indoor pool and gym and of course the snow, make us feel like we’re truly on holiday!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The Happy Valley location couldn't be better. It's close enough to the Gondola (5 minutes walk) to reach all the village amenities after a short 5 minute ride and the Gondola operates from early morning until late evening. The top level location of the Penthouse allows us to have complete privacy and stunning elevated views of the mountains. After a busy day on the slopes you can seriously relax watching ice skating beneath, firework displays and the stars from of your very own private hot tub – bliss! We think our Penthouse at Big White is one of the best places we've ever stayed and we hope that you'll feel the same!
