Predator Ridge - Vernon, British Columbia
We knew we could expect something special from British Columbia’s premier luxury resort. Through thoughtful development and sustainable building, these upscale homes somehow manage to enhance the already breathtaking natural beauty that surrounds them. With so many ownership options, from townhomes to custom mansions, you only have to answer one question: which style of Predator Ridge real estate is right for you? Take the duplex-style Villas at Birdie Lake. Perfect for golf enthusiasts, these Okanagan luxury villas offer a maintenance-free lifestyle, leaving you free to play the days away. Build your custom dream home in this heavenly setting with secluded home sites in the Longspoon Ridge and Vista Crest neighborhoods. With amenities like soaker tubs and granite counter tops, plus all-inclusive design packages, every home leaves you with a living space worthy of the magazine pages. And all are done in signature Predator Ridge style, with craftsman exteriors and an attention to detail that makes for a home – or home-away-from-home – that is nothing short of perfection.
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort - Golden, British Columbia
It’s not every day we find a resort that lets you play and still make a profit. With real estate from Kicking Horse, you can rest assured that you’re making a safe investment in a premier location. We loved the rustic, yet elegant feel of Kicking Horse’s Aspens townhomes. Warm and welcoming, these distinctive dwellings are outfitted with mountain must-haves like hot tubs and in-floor heating. And for the ultimate alpine abode, the Cedar Creek Estates boast secluded home sites with mountain views. Discover what it’s like to live with one of BC’s premier four-season mountain resorts just beyond your door. Try snowboarding on 4,000 acres of prime powder. Catch a glimpse of Boo, the resident grizzly, in the world’s largest enclosed grizzly bear habitat. Hitch a ride on a high speed gondola into the region’s finest hiking, biking and sightseeing territory. And you can forget takeout; with the resort’s real estate options, the mountaintop dining experience of the Eagle Eye restaurant can be your go-to choice for fine dining, anytime.
Evolution - Whistler, British Columbia
You’ll still find the mountain must-haves, like the Creekside Express Gondola that shoots you straight to the slopes, or the Valley Trail that takes you into the Whistler Creekside backcountry. But surprisingly enough, modern comforts weren’t sacrificed to maintain this authentic way of mountain life. Inside these one- and two-bedroom resort homes, you’ll enjoy open floor plans with upscale add-ons like dual-sided fireplaces and European-inspired kitchens. And don't forget the resort-style amenities, including a theatre room, fitness center and sun terrace with breathtaking mountain views – all with the flexibility of quarter ownership. All this comfort and luxury comes with a spectacular location at the base of British Columbia’s prime ski territory. More than 8,100 skiable acres, plus 12 alpine bowls and 33 lifts, are scattered about Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. A resort home from Evolution gives you the competitive edge, with more time to make the most of equipment rentals, ski and snowboard lessons and the magnificent Whistler Blackcomb powder. And at the heart of this remarkable meeting place sits the picturesque Whistler Village, where you’ll find shopping, fine dining and all the necessities.
Fernie Ski Resort - Fernie, British Columbia
No matter what you have a passion for, real estate from Fernie Vacation Properties lets you pursue it. Maybe manicured fairways stir you into a frenzied state. Surrounded by the Fernie Golf and Country Club – one of BC’s top 25 golf courses – the Fernie Golf Estates are just steps from 18 holes of unparalleled play. Designed and furnished in contemporary craftsman style, these upscale homes feature slate, natural wood and low-maintenance stucco and stone exteriors. Perhaps your family has strong feelings for skiing and snowboarding. Outside the stunning Polar Peak Lodges, the resort’s Timber Chair lift takes you to some of North America’s finest skiing. These distinctive BC mountain homes were designed with families in mind and boast ample space for holiday gatherings. But with Fernie vacation real estate, you’re never limited to just one pursuit. With both properties just minutes from each other, you can enjoy the best of both worlds!
Big White Ski Resort - Kelowna, British Columbia
Big White Property Group’s real estate offerings come with the most sought-after locations at the foot of Big White, the largest ski-in, ski-out resort in Canada. And each is totally turn-key; they’ve done the heavy lifting, you simply pack your bags and enjoy! Choose from the simple, like vacation condos in Happy Valley, to the simply stunning, like multi-million dollar estates with wine cellars, theatre rooms, elevators and views of the Monashee Mountains. Big White Ski Resort has sixteen lifts, so you can leave waiting in line to the poor souls who chose to live by those other ski resorts. As for après-ski activities, Big White has those, too. Skiing on vacation can be fun, but skiing on a daily, weekly and year-round basis (and you will when you live here) is bound to take its toll. Elevation Village Spa is the go-to spot for soothing those hard-earned aches and pains, where seasoned spa pros will have you rested, rejuvenated and back on the slopes faster than you can say Big White.
Delta Sun Peaks Resort - Sun Peaks, British Columbia
Are you ready to see what life is like at 4,000 feet above sea level? At Delta Residences at Sun Peaks, you get the luxury of ownership with the hospitality of a hotel, including access to all the resort amenities. But Delta goes above and beyond with in-room dining, two private residence hot tubs and a ski valet for first-class living in a topnotch British Columbia location. Sun Peaks was named one of the best mountain bike parks in North America, but there’s so much more, from fly fishing to ATV tours, when you live here year-round. Delta Sun Peaks Resort has the solution to planning family vacations year after year. Delta Residences at Sun Peaks feature multiple bedrooms, spacious living rooms and enlarged kitchens for family – or just family-style – gatherings of any size. You barely even have to pack; everything from the place settings to the bed linens is included! Make one bedroom the permanent guest room, because with a location this good, your friends will beg to be included!
Four Seasons Resort, Whistler - Whistler, British Columbia
We really should tell you about Whistler’s well-manicured trails, perfect for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. We probably should say more about the Spa at Four Seasons Resort, where you can find peace of mind, anytime. And we definitely wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t mention the signature BC golf courses and sophisticated shopping just minutes away. But we were so taken with the multiple master bedrooms, spacious living areas and furnished terraces that you’ll have to forgive us if we ramble on. When the Four Seasons describes its private residences as rustic, what they really mean is stylish, modern and the epitome of luxury. You’re hardly roughing it when you wake up to deep soaking tubs, double vanities and steam showers each morning. And there’s certainly nothing quaint about the gourmet kitchens, upscale finishes and contemporary furnishings found throughout. In fact, the only thing “rustic” about these year-round retreats are the British Columbia mountain peaks and fir-tree forests that surround them.
Red Mountain Resort - Rossland, British Columbia
Residences at Red Mountain are designed with quality, not quantity, in mind. Nothing stays truer to this goal than their location in the quaint town of Rossland, BC. A unique cultural center tucked away in the Monashees, there’s nothing sleepy about this mountain town. Like Red Mountain Resort, Rossland has earned a reputation for attracting the best; gourmet chefs and artists, with all the talents of their big-city contemporaries but looking for a slower pace of life, have made Rossland their home. And we’re betting you will too, once you see all that Red Mountain Resort has to offer. In existence: the sleek, two- and three-bedroom condos at Slalom Creek. And in the works: Caldera at Red. Sized from a sufficient 6,000 to a sprawling 17,000 sq. ft., these homesites are surrounded by protected forests, mountainfed streams and the best backcountry trails. Sustainable homes, contemporary designs and expansive glass walls to let the light in and your spirit soaring out – what more could you ask for?
Northstar Mountain Village Resort - Kimberley, British Columbia
We told you they were affordable. But we still haven’t talked about all the upscale amenities that come with the unbelievably low price tag. Luxury townhomes from Northstar Mountain Village Resort feature river rock, heavy timbers and natural stone throughout. From bed linens to bath towels, everything is included, for a maintenance-free lifestyle that actually lets you enjoy your vacation. And with no limits on how you use it, Northstar makes it easy to share your vacation real estate with friends, reward employees or impress potential clients. Need a break from Kimberley, BC? No problem. Northstar Mountain Village Resort throws in a three-year membership with Interval International – the world leader in vacation exchange at resorts around the globe. It’s 2,000 vacation opportunities for the price of one! You can even rent your home when you’re away; from cleaning to post-guest inventory, Northstar Hospitality Co. takes care of everything. And because they’re so affordable up front, it’s a smart investment any way you look at it. But don’t look for too long; Northstar Mountain Village is already breaking ground on the final phase!
Bighorn Meadows Resort - Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia
Past guests have called Bighorn Meadows Resort a golfer’s paradise. They wouldn’t be wrong; this luxury resort is surrounded on three sides by the Springs at Radium Golf Resort – home to a world-class golf course that is as fun to play as it is visually appealing. Of course, with Lake Windermere just minutes away, we could see how some might mistake it for a lake resort. Boating, water sports, windsurfing and sailing can all be enjoyed on this refreshing BC lake, perfect for family vacations or weekend getaways. And yes, you can still ski at the nearby Panorama Mountain and Kicking Horse Resorts. With one of the most flexible ownership programs around, this is one BC resort that lets you play as much (or as little) as you’d like. After all, what good is ownership if it doesn’t suit your needs? Choose from three week to quarter shares in upscale suites appointed with fireplaces, walkout balconies and designer furnishings, plus access to all the resort’s amenities!Visit Website
