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

Take in the summer air and incredible landscape of Big White. HIKE the walking trail or take a scenic tour on the BULLET CHAIR and enjoy the mountain wild flowers and lush nature that surrounds you - Summer hiking and sightseeing from July 4 to September 7.

ENJOY the CRAFT, BEER & MUSIC FESTIVALS and the ANNUAL BIKE RACE.

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.

About Annelise Nunn

We're a typical 2 + 2 family. Love the ski-ing, mountain air and lots of activities!

Annelise Nunn purchased this condo in 2007

Why Annelise Nunn chose British Columbia

We chose Big White 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 center 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!!

What makes this condo unique

Our place has excellent views, is close to Happy Valley with it's magic carpets, tubing, skating, ice tower, ski-doing etc. 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 & snow activity or summer fun - What more could you ask for !!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Compared to ski-ing in Europe it was OUT OF THIS WORLD!



Such a friendly place, from the lifties to the ski guides.

Kids Club a combination of top quality childcare and expert ski instruction. Our 6 year old had the time of her life and the instructors were so keen for her to have fun - so sign of them being tired towards the end of the season!

So many free activities in the afternoon/evenings - hot chocolate, carnivals, fireworks etc.

And the tubing was 'to die for' as a laugh for all the family.

Very varied ski-ing and connected well with the lifts, lots of variety for different ability levels - our 13 yr old son could whiz in and out of the trees, jumping and showing off as his parents came down more sedately!

Rarely had to queue for lifts and the slopes were wonderfully quiet, - though when in difficulty someone would always stop to help!

We're just taking over the management this season and looking forward to helping others enjoy the place as much as we do!

Terrific Condo - Fantastic Resort

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous spacious apartment with great views. Everything you need is there including a Christmas tree and decorations during the festive season - what a lovely touch. The hot tub is a perfect way to finish a hard day on the slopes and was especially great on Saturday night with the fireworks display. We enjoyed the added extras of boot dryers, sonos system and free wi-fi. The ski locker combination lock did prove somewhat challenging but on-site personnel were quick to assist. Keyless entry - excellent idea. Ski-in was great and ski out a bit tougher. We will be recommending 208 Raven, Big White and the dog sleighing (great fun) to all our friends. This stay made our first trip to Canada very memorable and a big thanks to Annelise for being a perfect host. We will be back.

Fantastic family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from one week at Big White, and had a wonderful vacation! We not only enjoyed the skiing (which is just so beautiful!), but we had so much fun tubing, skating and our girls even tried the snowmobiling! We enjoyed walking over to the Happy Valley Lodge, to enjoy the Apres Ski, where the kids received free hot chocolate and popcorn, and we all enjoyed the live music. Big White is a winter wonderland, and coming back to the Raven was the perfect finish to each day! We are a family of five, so the bedrooms worked perfect, the kitchen had everything you could ever need to prepare meals, and the hot tub offered fantastic views of the mountains. Thanks Annelise for making our vacation at Big White a memorable one.

Great Place - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place at Big White. We had 6 adults heading there for a birthday weekend and it worked out fantastic. The apartment has been kitted out really well, and you can see the detail and extra expense that went into every little finish and all the amenities that were provided. We ate out a few times but otherwise opted to cook meals and eat around the large dining table.

The apartment is in a great area; although not inside the village itself (which is very small anyway) it's really close to Lara's Gondola, so a short few blocks walk and you are at the free Gondola to take up to the Village Center. The big benefit is that you can ski right to the very back door when heading home. The keyless check-in made things really easy, not to mention having some on-site contacts just in case we had any minor questions/issues; both the host and the on-site contacts were incredibly responsive and always offered tons of suggestions and information anytime I asked.

The hot tub on the balcony was a great way to wind-down after a day on the slopes. If you are there on a weekend, make sure to watch the fireworks from the hot tub on Saturday night - incredible view!

All in all a really great place and one that I'll certainly be staying in again when going back to Big White.

Truly amazing with a wonderful view from big picture windows

  • 5 of 5

Coming from Calgary Alberta, this luxurious condo was remarkably a great experience, easy to find and the keyless combination locks made everything super easy, considering it was 3 couples who stayed. The place was fully furnished with big spacious living area and large bedrooms. The kitchen came fully stocked and the bathrooms came with toilet paper and hand and dish soap. There's binders packed full if your looking for entertainment around big white and surrounding area. Also has board games and a ps4. Everything was so easy. The best chalet ive stayed in by far!

The owner is amazing at communicating and is professional at hosting to say the least. The only downside is there was no airconditioning but she had a fan for every room. My guess is most people only rent this place when snowboard season takes place. I would definitely come back here again. 5 stars all the way

Owner's Response: Anthony We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! Good to hear that the fans were useful, sorry it's not worth having air-con for the short time it would be useful. Looking forward to hosting you again in the ski season. Annelise
