About Gregg Veinpel

My wife and I grew up in Mississauga a suberb of Toronto Canada. Ever since our first ski vacation in B.C. we have had an overwhelming desire to move closer to the mountains, so when the chance to relocate to Seattle for a job opportunity arose, we jumped at the opportunity. Within the first year we discovered the Okanagan and immediately fell in love. We started vacationing there so frequently that we eventually took the plunge and purchased our place at Big White. A world class ski hill 3 steps out our backdoor. It just doesn't get any better than this!!!

Gregg Veinpel purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Gregg Veinpel chose Big White

Simply put the snow and the people. There is nothing quite like floating down a ski hill in two feet of fresh light champagne powder. Add in the fact that the hospitality of the staff makes this big mountain feel like a small mountain resort. And when all this is literally three steps out your back door, purchasing became a very simple decision.

What makes this townhome unique

Aside from the quality of the unit and all of its' finishing three things set us apart from almost all other properties on the mountain. Our ski-in ski-out location is second to none. Trails down to the Show Ghost, Ridge Rocket and Plaza chair are three steps out our backdoor and you can ski to the foot of our driveway at the end of the day. Our location ensures that we will always have completely unobstructed spectacular views of the Monashee mountains. Our unit has a private heated garage complete with hooks, racks and benches which makes it a breeze to get out on the mountain in the morning.

Our go-to spot

  • 5 of 5

Condo is ski out and ski-in with a short walk across a side street for ski-in access. If you want to or need to be in or near the Village this may not be the best location, but it's a short 10 min walk to Happy Valley Gondola in any case. This was our second stay and as always, Gregg & Lisa were gracious and professional hosts. They communicate with you from beginning to end to ensure that your stay is a great one. The change and storage area in the garage is a huge plus. I don't want to recommend too highly lest all the dates start being taken, but our group of 7 really enjoy this condo and its comforts !

Unforgettable Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the recent pleasure of staying at Greg and Lisa's townhome with friends, 8 of us in total which included 4 kids. We arrived to find the place spotless and ready for us to move right in, not one complaint with the added touch of 2 bottles of wine waiting. The place had ample room and it was a nice touch that the 4 kids had their own space/bedrooms downstairs allowing for the parents to relax on the main floor. The main floor was perfect, kitchen had everything you would need with lots of space. The heated garage with a change area was an added bonus as our ski gear was always dry for the next day. The ski in/ski out was perfect and as advertised unlike some other places on the mountain. After extensive searching over a few seasons for the perfect place to stay we found it, no need to keep lookin, already booked for next year. By far one of the best family vacations we have ever had, thanks for everything Greg and Lisa.

As usual a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at Greg and Lisa's town home in Big White. As always, we arrived and the place was impeccable. Everything works and everything is clean. The convenience of the ski-in, ski-out just adds to the positive experience, and that the garage has a boot room and ski room attached makes it everything that much easier, especially with young kids.

We do not frequent the restaurants at Big White (mainly due to the expense with 3 kids), so we stock up in Kelowna at the COSTCO, other supermarkets, and of course the wine store. Everything that is required to prepare a gourmet meal at the town home is there, including a gas barbecue.

This home is one of the best...we are already booked for next again!!!!

Well appointed chalet. Good location

  • 4 of 5

This is a centrally located modern luxury townhouse that could comfortably accomodate 2 families. It has 2 master bedrooms with ensuites up, living on the mainfloor, and room for kids downstairs. Heated floors and bootroom are a nice touch. Easy ski in/ski out access. Owners were welcoming and easy to deal with.
