About the property

Big White - 3 Bedroomm 3.5 Bathroom ski in/ ski out town house

Blacksmith Lodge is a large modern luxurious ski in / ski out town house with stunning views over the Monashee Mountains. (Property immediately borders the run that links to Plaza, Ridge Rocket and Snow Ghost lifts or 200m walk to link to the Gondola lift run). It is perfectly located within easy walking distance of everywhere you would want to go – town center, lifts, restaurants, bars, Happy Valley facilities etc.

There is a large private outdoor hot tub for your enjoyment which along with a nice glass of wine is a perfect muscle relaxant after a wonderful day on the slopes, and prior to dinner prepared from the beautiful gourmet kitchen or a local restaurant. There is also a large stainless steel BBQ on the rear patio. You may prefer to relax on the large leather sofas in front of the gas fire and watch a movie ahead of another busy day on the slopes.

There are two master bedrooms, one with king bed and one with queen bed, both have en-suite bathrooms. The king master has a electric/gas fire. The third bedroom has a comfortable L shaped 5 seater sofa and a single and twin bunk beds. This bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom.

The Den has a workstation and computer with a view down the mountain from where you can catch up with emails and any other matters where contact with the real world is necessary. The den also has a single chair bed.

The property is immediately next to one of the runs so ski in / ski out could not be simpler. Ski and boarding equipment is stored in the garage from where you can access the run. Access to the property can be made via the garage electronic key pad which enables easy access with ski equipment and avoids the potential of lost keys.

About Robin Garnham

I live in the Cayman Islands with my family who all love to snow ski. I have enjoyed skiing and snowboarding all my life and love to see my kids enjoying it too. Having visited Big White numerous times it made perfect sense to invest in a property there.

Robin Garnham purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Robin Garnham chose Kootenay Boundary E

The owner is a keen skier and snowboarder and chose this resort and property carefully with a focus on the spacious luxurious accommodation, the quality and quantity of snow at this resort, ski in / ski out access, very limited lift queues, easy walking access to all evening entertainment that you may want to enjoy together with the general ambiance of the resort.

What makes this townhome unique

* The location enables guests to maximize their enjoyment of the snow and eradicate any lost time waiting for buses or walking to lifts. This is how it should be everywhere!

* Assistance is available for grocery delivery to match your arrival date and time.

* Assistance is available for private taxis and other time and cost effective transport.

Big White Magic

  • 5 of 5

Our accommodation was a wonderful place to stay for our family of 6 adults plus 1 toddler. Plenty of space, well equipped 3 bedroom plus study town house/ villa. Hot tub was enjoyed by skiers! Easy to access village and gondola for up and down the mountain. Family would recommend for some great skiing.

Wonderful on mountain town home!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was perfect for us. We had the king master with our own bath, our 22 year old daughter had the queen master with her own bath (which she LOVED), her boyfriend had his own space with the fold out twin in the den, and our 20 year old son and his two friends had their own space and bathroom on the bottom floor. We never felt crowded. Plus, the ski in/out set up was almost perfect (you have to take off your skis and walk a little ways back to the unit, but not bad). We really like Big White, and if we come back with a large group, we'd definitely book this town home again. Thank you, Robin!

A truly fantastic chalet.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was incredibly well equipped with every utensil and gadget necessary (including a panini maker and a croc pot), the living space was plentiful and every bed was super comfortable with great pillows. Thank you for a perfect week.

Impressive Property!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. The location was convenient for access to the Ridge Rocket, Snow Ghost and Plaza chairs as well as the Happy Valley area. This well taken care of three bedroom property provided our family of six ample space and yet has a cozy feel. We were impressed by the nicely appointed kitchen and the owners atention to detail with regards to the instruction binder that answered any questions we had. The south view of happy valley was great for the Saturday night fireworks! I would recommend this property.
