Byakko has a solid pedigree as one of the West Canada Homes-built stable of ski residences. As befitting their standards it boasts en suites to all 4 bedrooms, king-split beds, beautifully appointed furnishings and oodles of space. The expansive windows and balconies offer guests delightful views of snowy treed landscapes, the ski slopes – especially at nights with the runs lit up – and wonderful Mt Yotei.

Tasteful touches of Japanese décor, including the distinctive designs of the local Ainu people, add the perfect finish to the luxury appointments including an impressive stone fireplace. A media room is generously equipped with wall-mounted plasma TV screen with DVD, and stereo connections and a library of books, CDs and DVDs. Each bedroom is generously provided with its own ensuite with an additional toilet and washroom on the ground level and another toilet on the middle level.

The sleekly appointed open plan kitchen and dining room leads onto a balcony which runs the length and width of the building – a perfect additional snowy refrigerator when guests arrive! The lounge and dining areas comfortably cater for 8 guests. Full laundry facilities and good storage for skis and snowboards are located on the ground level.
