Our 2800 sqft chalet (1700sqft upper suite over two floors, 1100sqft ground floor suite) is recently renovated. Enjoy magnificent views of the Monashee mountains while preparing meals in either kitchen, BBQing or relaxing in the living areas or hot tub (during ski season only sorry) after a great day of champagne powder skiing. Access between the two suites is by an external, covered staircase. It is a 750m ski out to the Snowghost, Ridge Rocket Lifts (both access the mountain/skiing) and the Plaza Lift (to the village) plus the Ridge Day Lodge. It is a 150m ski in home.
In the Summer, hike or mountain bike the trails. Enjoy one of the many events held up at Big White during the summer. The lifts run during the summer weekends.
Our rather rustic chalet is perfect for several families or an extended family who are looking to enjoy a ski holiday together. The entire chalet, consisting of two suites over three floors, works really well for a large group and as described - normally several families or an extended family (no parties sorry people!).
Suite A has 4 bedrooms (one on the main floor, 3 on the upper floor) each with a queen bed. There is a small amount of either cupboard or drawer space in each room. If required, we have two single sofa beds in the living area. Two of the upper bedrooms are traditional chalet loft style (with one curtained wall - draw the curtains back to reveal outstanding Monashee mountain views). The chalet has been built by skiers for skiers with an open kitchen with in-floor heating, dining area and a bar which has numerous uses from music, extra bar fridge, seating area for the kids/teens at dinner. The dining table seats 8 and we have 3 stools to fit more around the table. There are two bathrooms in Suite A (one on each level) and they have been recently renovated to include in-floor heating. The laundry is complete with washer and dryer plus has a work bench to wax skis and adjust bindings and boards. The entrance to Suite A opens into a boot room before you enter the kitchen.
Suite A kitchen is supplied with a induction stovetop and cookware, food processor, slow cooker, rice cooker, blender, hand blender, dishwasher, microwave, oven, expresso maker, drip coffee, toaster.
Ground level Suite B has 3 bedrooms each with a queen bed and a single bunk above. If required, there are two single sofa beds in the living area. The kitchen and the one bathroom (the bathroom has in-floor heating) have been recently renovated. The dining table seats 6.
Suite B kitchen is supplied with a slow cooker, dishwasher, drip coffee maker, hand blender.
Each suite has a HD 42" TV with movie on demand and an Apple TV in each suite.
Park 4-5 cars depending on the snow pack. There is over flow parking in Snow Pines estate but no parking on the road.
We are available anytime that we are awake (as we are in Singapore). We have found from experience the afternoon in Canada is the best time to speak to us. If you need help at our chalet outside of this time we have a long list of Big White based cleaners, hot tub service, plumbers, emergency services. Our cleaners help us with anything our guests may need during their stay.
We are happy to speak to our guests to answer any questions you may have, letting you know we are easy to contact and to ensure you have a comfortable stay on your Big White holiday! If you would prefer to communicate over email that suits us too. We look forward to speaking with you.
Snowpines estate is one of the original neighborhoods of Big White. We love our location as it is out of the village but still close to the three main lifts (Snowghost, Ridge and Plaza) which access the mountain (leading off to Gem or the main mountain) and Plaza lift. The Plaza lift allows you to go up to the village for ski lessons, equipment or a meal. The plaza lift also allows you to access Bullet Lift which offers night skiing. Please note that you must be on skis to catch the lift.
For those who enjoy to stretch their legs you can enjoy the walk (or snowshoe) along the lit Snowpines Walk to the village (it is about a comfortable 20 minutes walk). The gondola in the village takes you down to the Nordic skiing and snowshoe area, tubing, children's skiidoo, iceclimbing, horse and dog sled rides, skating at Happy Valley.
For the non skiers, beginner skiers or simply tired skiers there is a shuttle bus to and from Snowpines to the Village.
All of the village, Happy Valley, Black Forest, Gem Lake can be reached by a short car ride.
