Big White townhome description

#1 Blacksmith Lodge is a very comfortable and luxurious (2200 square foot) end unit with stunning views over the Monashee Mountains. It has won awards for Best Development, Best Layout and Best Interior Finishing.

It has features such as hot water radiant heated floors, large private outdoor hot-tub with massaging jets (very nice after a long day skiing), a fully-equipped luxury kitchen and a great room with gas fire.

All beds have comfortable fluffy duvets. There are two Master bedrooms with King-size beds and en-suite bathrooms (one has a jetted tub plus shower, the other a rainshower/steam cabinet). The third bedroom has a comfortable pull-out queen sofabed and the fourth bedroom has a single/twin bunkbed. These bedrooms share a bathroom with bath/shower.

The lodge has easy access to three main lifts (ski run goes right past back door!) and located only a few minutes from both the Village centre and Happy Valley.

To keep up with your e-mails, we have provided free high-speed wireless internet access for our guests. Access to the lodge is via a Keypad code, which will be sent to you shortly prior to your arrival.

Big White ski resort is Canada’s largest ski-in/ski-out resort with an average snowfall of 25 feet of "champagne powder" snow. It has 118 designated trails, 27 unnamed trails, and lots of off piste skiing in the powder bowls and tree glades; 18% of the runs are beginner, 56% intermediate, and 26% expert.

We have both been skiing and snowboarding for many years and we still love the place. Not only for the great snow and challenging terrain, but also because of the friendly atmosphere and last but not least: no long lift queues!

We've put a lot of thought in making the lodge as comfortable as possible, to ensure our guests will have a wonderful, fun and worry free holiday!

SPECIAL: Book for 8+ nights and get a 10% discount. This offer applies year-round, so also during Christmas, New Year & Presidents' Week!

Please e-mail us if you need any further information about Blacksmith Lodge or Big White ski resort. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: We first visited Big White in 2000 and immediately fell in love with it. We've skied and boarded many resorts in France, Austria, Italy, USA and Canada. Big White certainly isn't the biggest resort, but it's definitely the most fun. Since having kids, it's even more fun coming here and there's no doubt about its claim to be in the top 5 kids' centers in the world. We live in the Netherlands and both travel for a living (Nick is a pilot and Irma is a flight attendant). Our kids both love travelling and look like they're going to be better skiers than us in a couple of years :)

              Why the Owner Chose Big White:
              Fantastic snow and great family atmosphere

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              Looking out the window at a foot of fresh powder and knowing we can be on the lift before most people have finished breakfast. Sitting in the hot tub with a cold beer, watching the last of the skiers making their way down to Happy Valley. Having a snowball fight with the kids out the front of Blacksmith.
