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 British Columbia

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.

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.

Good ski in & out location on the mountain, with a comfortable kitchen, dining & lounge space.

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse was in a good spot for ski in and ski out, within easy walking/skiing distance to the Village and skating & tube park. The living and sleeping space was just right for our family party of six, with a soft king bed, a firm queen bed and 3 singles. We appreciated the private hot tub at the end of full days playing in the snow.

Excellent Spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a great unit, it is spacious and great for 2 couples + 3 or 4 singles. All 3 bedrooms have ensuite full baths (this is rare and makes things so much more private). The kitchen is very well equipped with modern appliances, utensils and cookware. Ski on (to the ridge rocket) is maybe 10 steps. The communication with the owner is extremely quick, efficient and professional. I would stay here again without any reservations.

Great place, very helpful host

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. Couldn't be much better placed - you ski to the driveway on your way in and <1 min walk to get on the slope to a lift when you leave. House is well equipped, clean and easily held our group of 5 adults. Would definitely stay here again if back for more Big White powder.
