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 British Columbia

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 comfortable condo - perfect for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Great unit, well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Unit is nice and large and accommodated our party of 3 adults, an infant and a toddler very well. Location is about a 5 min walk from Happy Valley and the bottom of the gondola. Easy ski in, fairly easy ski out (except you have to cross a road skiing out so if there isn't fresh snow you want to walk a bit). From the hot tub you can see the skating rink and sat night fireworks which were great!

Only complaint about the building is that to access the pool you have to go outside (units and pool doors are exterior) which makes for a chilly walk in the winter!

Owner was very pleasant to deal with and very prompt in responding when we had any questions.

Excellent accommodation - would definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for our week skiing at Big White. The condo is extremely well equipped and had everything that we could possibly have needed. As others have said, the accommodation is very spacious and the view from the hot tub is great - we took note of a previous reviewer's comments and made sure that we watched the fireworks from the hot tub on Saturday evening.

There was no fresh snow while we were there so the ski-in became a little tricky as the last short section of the slope to the back of the accommodation is relatively steep and more rocks and undergrowth were being exposed as the week progressed. However, access to and from the building is generally very convenient and it's only a few minute walk to the gondola for access to the village centre.

Communication with Annelise was superb and we would definitely want to stay in this condo again if we revisit Big White in the future.

Terrific Condo - Fantastic Resort

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous spacious apartment with great views. Everything you need is there including a Christmas tree and decorations during the festive season - what a lovely touch. The hot tub is a perfect way to finish a hard day on the slopes and was especially great on Saturday night with the fireworks display. We enjoyed the added extras of boot dryers, sonos system and free wi-fi. The ski locker combination lock did prove somewhat challenging but on-site personnel were quick to assist. Keyless entry - excellent idea. Ski-in was great and ski out a bit tougher. We will be recommending 208 Raven, Big White and the dog sleighing (great fun) to all our friends. This stay made our first trip to Canada very memorable and a big thanks to Annelise for being a perfect host. We will be back.

Fantastic family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from one week at Big White, and had a wonderful vacation! We not only enjoyed the skiing (which is just so beautiful!), but we had so much fun tubing, skating and our girls even tried the snowmobiling! We enjoyed walking over to the Happy Valley Lodge, to enjoy the Apres Ski, where the kids received free hot chocolate and popcorn, and we all enjoyed the live music. Big White is a winter wonderland, and coming back to the Raven was the perfect finish to each day! We are a family of five, so the bedrooms worked perfect, the kitchen had everything you could ever need to prepare meals, and the hot tub offered fantastic views of the mountains. Thanks Annelise for making our vacation at Big White a memorable one.

Great Place - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place at Big White. We had 6 adults heading there for a birthday weekend and it worked out fantastic. The apartment has been kitted out really well, and you can see the detail and extra expense that went into every little finish and all the amenities that were provided. We ate out a few times but otherwise opted to cook meals and eat around the large dining table.

The apartment is in a great area; although not inside the village itself (which is very small anyway) it's really close to Lara's Gondola, so a short few blocks walk and you are at the free Gondola to take up to the Village Center. The big benefit is that you can ski right to the very back door when heading home. The keyless check-in made things really easy, not to mention having some on-site contacts just in case we had any minor questions/issues; both the host and the on-site contacts were incredibly responsive and always offered tons of suggestions and information anytime I asked.

The hot tub on the balcony was a great way to wind-down after a day on the slopes. If you are there on a weekend, make sure to watch the fireworks from the hot tub on Saturday night - incredible view!

All in all a really great place and one that I'll certainly be staying in again when going back to Big White.

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.
