During COVID times, treating ourselves to luxuries has been, well, challenging. Eating out has effectively become eating take-out in; getting a massage means finding a good corner to rub your back on; and a relaxing beach holiday has been replaced with a snowy escape to your local mountain.
At Big White Ski Resort, the Okanagan’s only completely ski-in, ski-out destination, and Canada’s Favourite Family Resort, there is no shortage of ways to spoil you and yours – and escape from the current work-from-home, eat-from-home, learn-from-home lifestyle while still staying close to home.
If the world-famous Okanagan Champagne Powder isn’t luxurious enough to seduce you up the mountain, then maybe the home-away-from-home possibilities are. Big White Central Reservations Ltd, the mountain’s largest accommodation booking agency, has multiple options for a luxurious mountain getaway, including Sundance Resort, The Edge, Woodcutter Cabins, and Copper Kettle Lodge.
Sundance Resort’s heated outdoor pool and hot tubs have always been a draw for families, couples and single travellers alike. Located just above the Bullet Express, a minute’s walk to the Village Centre, Sundance Resort has some of the best ski-in, ski-out access on the mountain – not to mention ahh-worthy mountain and valley views.
The Edge, located just off Happy Valley Way and a quick zip from Lara’s Gondola, takes your classic mountain accommodation and gives it a contemporary spin. These spacious, modern, slope-side units are filled with unique decor, and amenities like a private hot tub, gourmet kitchen, and luxurious bathrooms.
Looking for something a little more rustic? Woodcutter Cabins, aptly named for their location on Woodcutter Run, offer a private and peaceful ski holiday experience for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the Village. With exposed post and beam craftsmanship, large stone fireplaces, and private hot tubs, your apres-ski game will be off the charts.
Hidden off the beaten track, but with just as easy ski-in, ski-out access as most accommodation on the mountain, is Copper Kettle Lodge. Situated between the Black Forest Chairlift and the Bullet Express, Copper Kettle is just a ten-minute walk to the Village centre, and boasts hardwood floors, timber ceilings, stone fireplaces and private hot tubs on the balconies. For those who like to cook, the gourmet kitchens include granite bench-tops, stainless steel appliances and aprés-ski wine fridges!
