About Doug Steinke

We are a family of four. We have had our family grow up on the hill over the last fourteen years. If you have a young family or teenagers, our condo and location has much to offer. Our condo is a family owned unit. We rent for about half the season and use it personally for the remainder of the season. Every year we try to do an improvement to our condo to keep it modern and well maintained.

The location and setup of the condo is ideal for families with children. Easy access to the hill and walking distance to the village.

We live in Kelowna and are always available should any problem arise.

Doug Steinke purchased this condo in 2003

Why Doug Steinke chose Kootenay Boundary E

Big White is only an hour away from Kelowna and the airport. It is the best ski area in the region. While skiing is big here, there is something for everyone, even if you aren't a skier. Big White's focus is the family, and they have many awards.

Great access to airport and transportation are some of the reasons we chose Big White Resort for our winter home.

We chose our ski condo because of the great layout for families, and the best in class ski in/ ski out. Many building may make claims of good access, but we literally walk out the front door and are on the mountain.

Great views and overlooking the ski run .......all adds to the great Canadian ski holiday!

What makes this condo unique

The Legends is a ten minute walk to the village and gondola. Experience great restaurants and lounges. No car is required.

You can see the fireworks of Happy Valley from the front windows.

There are no hallways, and very few stairs required to access our unit. Park directly in front of condo under a covered parkade.

There is nothing better than soaking in your private hot tub after a day on the slopes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at legends 7 the first week of February. This luxury condo is extremely well maintained, with every conceivable amenity. The views from the Master bedroom and adjacent deck with hot tub are fantastic. Back door really is ON the run. Thanks for a great stay.

Big White-Luxury Slopeside Condominium - Best ski out/in on the mountain.
average rating of 4.96 based on 31 reviews

This place is so great I don't want to tell people about it !

  • 5 of 5

I would rate this the best place to stay for a family ski vacation (and we have done quite a few). The location is perfect for families with true ski in and out from/to your door. The unit itself is very comfortable, a great layout, clean and well maintained. We found our unit well stocked and welcoming. The owner/operator was very accommodating and prompt to respond to any questions as we had some special issues to consider in booking this trip. My wife and I realized we had stayed here before at least 10+ years ago with some of her family and were looking for something similar. We didn't realize we had booked the exact location.

Thanks again to Doug for a great stay. We will definitely be looking to book again next year (so I hope all of you didn't read this review)

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We are returnees to Legends 7 multiple times. We love this place as it is well stocked with the comforts of home in the kitchen, living room, bedrooms and bathrooms. It is also a true ski-in and out which has us spoiled. You are able to look out your windows and watch people go down the Hummingbird and Whoop Dee Do runs. The condo is located close to the village and in a convenient location. You have the luxury of walking up and down the side of the Hummingbird run or stopping by at the end of snowboarding, pick up whatever needed, then strap-in and snowboard back to the condo. The jacuzzi was used before and after we went out on the slopes to loosen our tight muscles along with relaxing at the end of the day. It is truly our home away from home when we come to Big White. The owner is very pleasing to work with. He is responsive and accommodating. He provides all the information needed prior to your arrival and welcomes you when you arrive with a phone call. He really takes care of you from the start at the inquiry phase until you arrive. We never had any issues while we were staying at Legends 7. Overall it is a phenomenal experience every year we come.

Our family loves the location and comfort of Doug's condo. It is perfect for our family and we couldn't ask for a better location. It is clean, comfortable and has all the amenities of home. The ski in/out accessibility on Plaza chair is perfect for our two young sons (ages 10 and 7), especially for night skiing. The location is within close walking distance to the Village. We wouldn't think of staying anyplace else for our winter ski vacation and would highly recommend this property! Thank you Doug! The Wilson family

Best location to stay at Big White

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Doug's condo for two weeks this January, it was fantastic, very well equipped and fitted out. It really is the best location on the mountain for ski in/ski out and Doug is great to deal with. Highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodation at Big White.

Cheers Barb, Jeff and family

Spectacular family holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed here twice. We are a family of 5 with a 3,5 and 7 yo. The home is the perfect layout and has every amenity a family could ask for.

The location is perfect! Ski in and ski out. Or a quick walk up the hill to the village!

We'll be back! Thankyou Doug!
