IDEAL FOR 2 COUPLES/SKI OUT~TWO LUXURY BATHS~STEAM SHOWER~PRIVATE HOT TUB~ROBES

Big White Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

'The Powder Den' is a luxury condo in 'The Crescent' a 10 unit boutique condo building situated in White Forest Estates, an area of upscale homes ideally situated on the mountain and only 5 minutes to Town Centre. The Happy Valley lighted ski trail is right outside the backdoor and leads directly to town centre and the lifts~true ski-in ski-out!

In our Guests own words (see our reviews) The Powder Den is ideal for romantic get-away, Girl's get-away, Tourist's without a car, 55+, adventure seeker's and families with teens or young children.

Our unit is tastefully decorated with leather furniture, original artwork, vintage ski posters and of course a decorated Christmas Tree. The kitchen is stocked with basic cooking supplies and everything you need for gourmet cooking. The 9' ceilings give an airy feeling and the entry and bathroom floors are heated slate. All counters are granite, Stainless Steel Appliances and Kohler and Grohe fixtures. The private hot tub and private steam shower are a real treat after a hard days skiing and you'll drift off to sleep in the beautiful beds topped with feather beds and down duvets and be ready for the next days activities!

Our Guest's have mentioned how much they appreciate having robes to use especially for the hot tub. This was a must have for us when we were outfitting The Powder Den because our experience was that very few ski rental's supplied them and they are one of the things you don't want to pack because of the bulk.

We have tried to think of everything that would ensure that our guest's have the best ski vacation ever!

About Cheryl Read

My husband is a Realtor and I work as his assistant. We live on the waterfront in East Sooke on Vancouver Island with our Standard Poodle Liza. When ski season is over we love to kayak, hike and garden.

Cheryl Read purchased this condo in 2007

Why Cheryl Read chose Big White

We bought this property because of the true ski-in/ski-out and that it was a small (only 10 units) upscale condo in an area close to town centre yet not right in town centre.

What makes this condo unique

We can walk to town centre for shopping etc. but are not disturbed by the rowdyness of being right in TC. Of course the most important is that we are truly ski-in/ski-out!

Powder Den

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Powder Den. The unit is very quiet, clean, well appointed and comfortable. The heated ceramic floors were a real treat. The kitchen was well equipped even had spices along with salt & pepper. The ski-in/ski-out was convenient. The hot tub and steam shower were wonderful. We will definitely be staying there on our next trip to Big White.

Great place

  • 5 of 5
The place is exactly as described. Owner called first night to see if we had any questions and make sure all was in order.

Great vacation home and location - truly ski in/out. Main village was only a 5 minute walk.

Couldn't have asked for anything more...we will definitely be looking to book here again when we return.

Wonder Family Ski Vacation in Big White

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Powder Den in Big White. It is a very luxurious condo with everything to meet our needs and more. The owners have thought of everything. The hot tub was a pleasure after a day of skiing. It was hot enough with great jets and very clean. The children also enjoyed playing the Wii. The beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the robes when getting out of the hot tub. The location was very convenient to ski in and ski out. We will definitely return.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
The condo has a great location that is secluded but close to everything (lifts, village). Very comfortable beds with a lovely living room and well stocked kitchen. The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of skiing. Any questions or issues were addressed quickly by the owner. Overall a great trip. Would definitely return.

Powder Den

  • 5 of 5
Thank you again for sharing your lovely Mountain Home! We had such a good time.

The Powder Den is exactly as advertised - cosy, warm and fully equipped. It really felt like home to us.

The owners were certain to ensure our stay was perfect, going so far as to call us on arrival to be sure we were settled and satisfied.

As any good holiday should be - it was invigorating, exciting, relaxing. Starting our day with such an easy ski out into clear blue skies and perfectly groomed runs (Everywhere! So much terrain!) One day we could see Silver Star, The Monashees, The Bugaboos and the Coastal range - absolutely stunning. We even got a famous "Okanagan Champayne Powder" day! Lunch times - quick bowl of soup & hot chocolate in village - back on the slopes. The best ski-in access. To relax the muscles apres ski, a hot tub watching the beautiful sunsets. Wrapped up in the lovely robes provided, a glass of wine by the fire. Then an easy short walk to village for dinner and entertainment (Irish Pub on Monday trivia night was a blast). The perfect ending to the days were a steam shower before bed.

The only problem we had ....... leaving!

We are already planning another ski trip here for this year!
