Big White is a family-oriented WINTER PLAYGROUND recognized by Ski Canada Magazine as having the ' BEST FAMILY SKI-ING '.

KIDS CENTRE
When all you want to do is get up on the mountain, don't worry about your kids. Why not drop them at a place where they'll have the time of their lives, and you can ski or board all day long worry free!
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. Chill out on our south facing balcony or the cafes & restaurants in the village.

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.

Kelowna’s many quality RESTAURANTS offer a variety of fine dining experiences.

Then it's only a short trip up the hill to relax in cooler climes and sleep with the RESTFUL MOUNTAIN ATMOSPHERE.

HOT TUB INCLUDED in the ski season, MODEST CHARGE OUT OF SEASON. Quote given on enquiry.

The Raven sits in the perfect Happy Valley location.

Happy Valley offers 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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We love it being ski-in/out. Great kid's centre. The resort is perfect for family ski-ing and entertainment with a wonderful condo to relax in.

Why the Owner Chose Kootenay Boundary E, BC, Canada:
We chose The Raven 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 centre 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!!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our place has excellent views, is close to the ski lifts and other amenities 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 !!
