Love the apartment, love the snow, love Big White! Hope to come back again very soon….
We are so excited to be staying here at Stonebridge. What a beautiful place. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and the location overlooking the village home run. The warm decor, fireplace and extra touches makes for a very comfortable place after a full day of powder. Thank you!
Had a great family holiday – great skiing, mountains, views and fabulous runs off the Cliff Chairlift during the day, and wonderful soaks in the hot tub and great B.C wines in the evening.
We had a absolutely fabulous time at Big White. Your accommodation was absolutely amazing. Everything we had hoped for and more. We used Vacation Foods delivery service which was extremely handy, had a lovely Xmas Dinner at the Gunbarrel Inn, girls went dog sledding which they are telling everyone was the highlight of their holiday, and the snow was fantastic so we did a lot of skiing. The only thing we could ask for would be another weeks holiday – 6 days was not long enough.
Our family are in love with Big White and have been skiing here for quite a few years now, and always make Stonebridge Lodge our home for our stay.
Over the years, we’ve stayed in Building 2 and 3, and just love the ski-in, ski-out access. The condos are well appointed, and we always book a condo with a hot tub on the deck. There is no better way to finish a big day on the ‘hill’ as the locals call this massive mountain. We will be back again next year all things going to plan.
It takes us 20 hours to get here, but once again Big White has not disappointed. This is our fifth visit, and second stay at Stonebridge. We hope to come back next year – that’s how good it is. Thanks for a great stay.
