Big White Ski Resort Ltd Welcomes A New $58-Million Development at Black Forest

Posted On: January 13, 2022 |
Just weeks after the announcement of the $60-million Black Forest Residences project, Big White Ski Resort Ltd is excited to share that two new developments will be joining the Black Forest area.

Kelowna developer Marvin Dean – the man responsible for the Grizzly Ridge at Big White, and Iron Horse in Upper Mission Kelowna – partnered with investor Jordan O’Sullivan to purchase 7.5 acres near the base of the Black Forest Express.

“I’ve always felt that Big White has such potential,” Dean said. “I’ve skied just about every ski resort in western US and Canada - Big White has so much to offer.”

Work on this new $58-million development will begin in fall 2022, and will consist of two projects: Blackhawk and Wild Wood. Blackhawk will be home to 16 townhomes and Wild Wood of 24 lots, for either single family homes or duplexes – with homes starting at $900,000. There will also be a few lots up for grabs for those with their own builders.

Dean has been in the ski business since the late 80s, and in development for about the same amount of time. In 2005, he was invited to check out Big White during the summer, fell in love, and before he even moved to Kelowna, he purchased 10 acres on the mountain – which eventually became the extremely successful Grizzly Ridge subdivision.

“Big White is growing up,” Dean, who’s been a season passholder for the past 15 year, adds. “We’re so happy with what is happening up at the mountain.”

Pre-registration for those interested will be online in the next couple of months. For more information regarding the development, please contact
