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 Kootenay Boundary E

Big White as a purpose built resort makes the holiday all 'joined-up'!

• Efficient equipment hire

• Extensive & integrated variety of slopes - clearly marked as groomed or not for complete choice of snow experience

• Children have a great time in the Kids' Centre:

o ski-ing in small groups

o craft activities

o hot chocolate & hot lunches for breaks

• Friendly lifties

Beats any alpine resort we've tried hands down!

What makes this condo unique

• Ski-in, ski-out

• Excellent views

• Close to Happy Valley with magic carpets, tubing, skating, ice tower, ski-doing etc. along with the convenient ski-in, ski-out access.

• Spaciously designed & kitted out with acute attention to detail, luxury and comfort

• Private deck & 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!

Great Christmas Vacation Location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Raven 208 at Big White. The amenities included with the unit were great - and the holiday decorations were a very nice special touch.

We would recommend Raven 208 to our friends and family, and hope to return again ourselves.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the condo! It was a short walk to the gondola and the hot tub was nice after a day on the slopes. Very well stocked with dishes and utensils. Would recommend this condo to others.

Owner's Response: Andrea So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I love cooking and am always keen to ensure the kitchen has lots of helpful things to make folk's stay smoother. As you say, the hot tub is 'just the ticket' after a day on the slopes! Annelise

very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice. Everything is modern and clean. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you could want and a few extras. Hot tub was wonderful after a day of skiing. We spent 1 week here in March and it was melting. The ski out wasn't great as all the snow had melted on the path and the walk to the gondola with ski boots on was tiring. Ski in is much better but it is fairly steep and a beginner would need to slide down on their bum. Loved being able to take the gondola up to the town. Lots of great restaurants but we chose to stay in the condo most nights instead.

Owner's Response: Sherry, So glad you had a great time. A shame the snow was a little thin to scoot down to the gondola, but as you say, it's a great ride up to the village. On the way back, we find you can go a little further on to find the slope back to the Raven is less steep for beginners. Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Annelise

Well equipped and comfortable condo.

  • 4 of 5

Great place to say for skiing in big white. Very well equipped kitchen and entertainment system. Kids bedroom is nicely presented.

The only thing of note for us was that the ski out wasn’t great. It’s more of a walk, rather than a ski to the gondola, due to having to go up hill and along level ground. Not a huge problem though.

And a small suggestion to the owner would be to remove some of the excess chairs/furniture from the living room to create more space. There seems to be a lot more seating than is necessary.

Overall though, it’s a lovely place.

Owner's Response: Tom, So glad to hear you enjoyed your time. I agree the ski-out does depend on the route taken and can be a little level at times. Interesting thought on the amount of furniture. We're going out in a few weeks so will see how all the new leather love seats/recliners fit in. We do want to ensure there's sufficient seating for when we have eight guests though. Hope to host you again soon. Annelise

We had a great stay!

  • 4 of 5

The chalet is an excellent spot to spend some time up at Big White. We enjoyed four nights there with friends taking advantage of some well timed pow pow on the mountain as well as the hot tub and well equipped chalet. Thanks, Annelise!

Our only 'constructive criticism' was that the chalet floor appeared to be a little dusty/dirty in less travelled areas. This is something we figured should be addressed during switch over cleanings. Beds, towels, washrooms, etc. were all well kept though!

Thanks, again!

Owner's Response: Richard So glad to hear you all had a great time. Many apologies for the dusty areas - that's quite unusual and I'll report it to our cleaners immediately. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Annelise

The Raven sits in the perfect Happy Valley location.

Happy Valley has the magic carpets and 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.

Or for absolute convenience - Book ahead for a professional massage, Swedish, and Acupressure techniques, all in the privacy of your chalet.
