Rustic Elegance, the two words to describe Snowy Bear Chalet! This chalet exudes warmth and comfort from the moment you step inside. From the “live” edge log fireplace mantel to the gas fireplace itself, you and your family or friends will enjoy the ambiance in the great room, sitting around the fire, enjoying the views outside, cozying up under a throw, reading that book you’ve been wanting to read, visiting with friends or playing your favorite board game. With Cathedral beamed ceilings and scraped hardwood floors, Snowy Bear Chalet has loads of character and warmth.

Snowy Bear Chalet is located in The Forest, within Snow Pine Estates which is a scenic walk to the Village center. Your ski to is from the Serwas run to the connector to Snow Pine Way. Your ski from goes along Snow Pine Crescent to the Village to Snow Pine pathway/run to Serwas which will take you down to the Ridge Rocket Express chair, the Plaza chair, or the Snow Ghost Express chair.

Your beautiful dining room sits 6 at the table and 2 more at the island, a large chefs kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel and black appliances, a gas stove and everything that you could need to prepare your meals. There is a half bath on the main level along with a boot dryer for your convenience. BBQ your meals on the upper deck off the dining room.

Guests can take in the majestic views of the Monashee Mountains from one of two decks or while soaking in the private hot tub after a day on the slopes. (available during the winter season only)

The Snowy Bear chalet was so much more than we expected! The large floor to ceiling windows, overlooking mountains and magical snowy trees. The fire place is such a stunning feature in this place and each little detail really sets this place apart. I loved that my kids could ski in and out and I didn’t need to drive anywhere. The customer service from Chalets at Big White was over the top! They really care about their guests experience. I highly recommend this place and can’t wait to return.

Awesome stay! So much room and all the amenities we needed. Spent most of the weekend on the mountain, but such a nice place to come back to and chill out in.

A beautiful spacious home in a quiet area of Big White. Perfect for families. The private hot tub was a great addition!



From the city of Kelowna (Hwy 97), turn South on Highway 33. Follow it for about 30 minutes (36 km) and watch for a blue sign that says “Big White Ski Resort” at the top of the long grade. Turn left on Big White Road and follow the road for about another 20 minutes (24km). Approximately 8 km after you pass the Gem Lake Lift at Westridge, you will come to a "Welcome to Big White Ski Resort" sign. Turn left just past this sign at the “Snow Pine Estates Development” onto Snow Pines Way. Continue on this road straight and turn at the first road on your left into “The Forest” development. Snowy Bear A is the 5th building on the left. The building is rust red wood siding and trim. The address for Snowy Bear A is 95A Forest Lane.
