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 Kootenay Boundary E

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 Christmas Vacation Location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Raven 208 at Big White. The amenities included with the unit were great - and the holiday decorations were a very nice special touch.

We would recommend Raven 208 to our friends and family, and hope to return again ourselves.

Owner's Response: Dear Kathy I’m so glad you enjoyed a special family Christmas and found the amenities helpful. I always love putting up the decorations before the season commences. Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Annelise

Well equipped and comfortable condo.

  • 4 of 5

Great place to say for skiing in big white. Very well equipped kitchen and entertainment system. Kids bedroom is nicely presented.

The only thing of note for us was that the ski out wasn’t great. It’s more of a walk, rather than a ski to the gondola, due to having to go up hill and along level ground. Not a huge problem though.

And a small suggestion to the owner would be to remove some of the excess chairs/furniture from the living room to create more space. There seems to be a lot more seating than is necessary.

Overall though, it’s a lovely place.

Owner's Response: Tom So glad to hear you enjoyed your time. I agree the ski-out does depend on the route taken and can be a little level at times. Interesting thought on the amount of furniture. We're going out in a few weeks so will see how all the new leather love seats/recliners fit in. We do want to ensure there's sufficient seating for when there are eight guests though. Hope to host you again soon. Annelise

We had a great stay!

  • 4 of 5

The chalet is an excellent spot to spend some time up at Big White. We enjoyed four nights there with friends taking advantage of some well timed pow pow on the mountain as well as the hot tub and well equipped chalet. Thanks, Annelise!

Our only 'constructive criticism' was that the chalet floor appeared to be a little dusty/dirty in less travelled areas. This is something we figured should be addressed during switch over cleanings. Beds, towels, washrooms, etc. were all well kept though!

Thanks, again!

Owner's Response: Richard So glad to hear you all had a great time. Many apologies for the dusty areas - that's quite unusual and I'll report it to our cleaners immediately. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Annelise

Initially there were a few issues to deal with but the local contact people got things fixed up promptly. I would stay at #208 Raven again!

Not at all! This place is a dump in the summer.

  • 1 of 5

This place is not suited to be rented in the summer. Unkept property, dried, overgrown grass and shrubs.. Very dusty. We couldn't sleep because of the heat. No AC. Small windows that open upwards prevents ventilation. I'm trying to understand how can be advertised on VRBO as a summer getaway.. We had to look for another place to stay and spent $900.00 more. Ridiculous.

Owner's Response: Erasmo I’m sorry you didn’t appreciate your visit. It was an unusually hot period with forest fires further up the valley. We do have lots of fans and you can get a cool through draft, but don’t advertise air conditioning. We’ve had many summer visitors in the past who’ve enjoyed their stay and Big White are putting on a great programme of activities including building several mountain bike routes. Annelise

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time for the 4 nights we rented this condo! Everything was exactly as advertised. Condo was a wonderful size, there was only the two of us however it definitely has the space available for the maximum capacity listed. Great location, easy to find when we drove in. Annelise was perfect with communication prior to arrival, and we only had to ask one question to the onsite contact (Sheila) regarding parking passes (we wondered at first given the signs in the parkade, but ended up not being required), which was answered right away! Really nice to feel at home right away. The weather had been a bit warm for the ski out so we walked down the path a ways to get to ski out to the gondola, but that was just fine, and definitely a seasonal anomaly. Ski in was incredibly convenient. The hot tub was steaming when we arrived, and we made use of it after each full day of skiing, usually before and after dinner! Serene views from the balcony, made it just perfect for sitting and relaxing in the tub.

We would definitely recommend 208 to friends travelling to Big White, and would likewise book again if available for our next time out!

Owner's Response: Hilary As you say, it’s easy to scoot down to the gondola, but it’s usually the case of how long the snow lingers at Big White. Looking forward to hosting you again soon. Annelise

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.
