Crescendo:  in design-DISTINCTIVE; in quality-UNCOMPROMISING; in amenities-EXTRAORDINARY.
Crescendo's distinctive look and uncompromising design is a testament to architectural genius.
A work of Art, actually, of contemporary ingenuity.
From the Great Room & Master Ensuite, views through 30' of glass open to the ski slope.
No problem finding your way back to Crescendo, even after partying a little too hard at the village.
At night, Crescendo transforms into a luminous architectural masterpiece.
But the daytime view ain't too bad either.  Agreed?
Especially here, as viewed from the tunnel (entry to Village), & from Hummingbird & Woodcutter runs.
Boarding back from the Village to take a ... a look at who's already started their Après activities.
Oh, you started without me.  Glad I slowed my approach, or I may have joined you all prematurely.
Ahhh ...
More Ahhh ...
Even More Ahhh ... Join us already!
Our SwimGym allows stationary lap swimming, against a current set to a level of your choosing.
Crescendo not only sleeps 22 guests, but our indoor-outdoor Jacuzzi accommodates that many as well.
Grandma and grandkids enjoying Crescendo's Jacuzzi...Especially the indoor portion.
A view of the slopes and our ski-in entry, from inside Crescendo's toasty Pool Room (24 C, 75 F).
Guests enjoy Crescendo year-round.  Late Spring to early Fall, in fact, are my favorite periods.
Just take a look at our Outdoor Play areas, where you'll find resort-like comfort.
During the day, move freely between our pool & picnic table areas.
Later, seated around our gas-fired Fire Table, enjoy the sunset ...
... and the extraordinary views.  Yes, they exceptional, too, even after the snow has said Goodbye.
Your chef will enjoy the experience with you, as our Grilling Station is  just outside the kitchen.
A 38” Napoleon Grill (that’s 42 hamburgers), built into & surrounded by granite-topped bar seating.
When it comes to providing an awesome gourmet experience, we’ve got you covered both inside and out.
Notice the pool's perimeter?  That's right, it's geothermally heated to snow-melt temperatures.
Perimeter may not be toasty to the feet, but when sitting outside the pool, your rear won't freeze.
Our Pool Rm's windows are coated with energy saving film.  What's reflected looks quite cool, too.
Want to enjoy your friends near the Jacuzzi, but not in the Jacuzzi?  Well ...
You'll appreciate, then, the seating we've added to that area:  especially after the snow has melted
The entire space around both the Patio and Pool areas have been leveled, tiered, and landscaped.
Transitioning between the two areas is seamless, accommodating seating for more than eighty people.
Whether for an event (e.g., wedding) or for an intimate romantic dinner for two, we're open, always.
Crescendo - the jewel of Big White ...
... be it during the summer, or ...
... be it during the winter.
In our Rec Room (original our Garage), for you Card Sharks, we have a Poker Table that seats six.
Woo hoo!  I'm all in!
For you tennis players, we have ... no, we don't have tennis courts.  We have a Pro Ping Pong table.
For you Billiards Buffs, we have Bumper Pool.  C'mon buddy, it's just a friendly game, right?
The Theatre & Game Room are our flexible bedrooms ...
... meaning that the rooms can easily serve as being both entertainment areas and private bedrooms.
Again?  OK, Game Room here, and ...
... then Bedroom here ...
... and here.  The moveable glass wall and blinds block-off the room for privacy when needed.
Crescendo’s Media Room is outstanding!  A 110” screen, 7.1 surround sound (along with 2 subwoofers).
1200+ movie titles are at your fingertips, literally, selected by scrolling their electronic jackets
The Theatre can convert to a bedroom, with 3 custom Wall Beds:  each with it's own custom cabinetry.
By design, every room at Crescendo offers its own unique experience, ...
... but the Great Room has always been Crescendo's focal point.
The views from that room, too, are to die for.
Here, while his parents relax on the couch, Zach gives a check-in signal before taking another run.
By design, our Great Room not only opens to the slope, but to the kitchen and dining areas, as well.
Sure, Crescendo's fireplace is truly stunning, but ...
... the atmosphere it creates is infectious:  in the Great Room, in the Dining Room, and ...
... in the Kitchen.
In all, our custom fireplace contributes uniquely to Crescendo's tranquil ambiance.
We next tour the Dining Room, which in the photo you can see to the right of the Kitchen.
This view is taken from the point at where the Great Room, Kitchen, and Dining Room meet.
View of our Dining Room & spiral staircase:  1/2 level down to Theatre, up to ski entry & bedrooms.
Speaking of views, the ones from the Dining Room are majestic.
The views from the Dining Room, in fact, are majestic day and night, regardless of the season.
Between the Dining Room and the Kitchen Island, more than 22 adults can dine together.
Crescendo's Gourmet Kitchen:  Viking, SubZero, Miele...nothing but the best.
Our ski-entry hall has two washers and two dryers:  both commercial-sized.
Serpentine glass block walls provide just the right amount openness and separation of space.
We get a kick out of the audible gasps from our guests, the first time they see our Guest Bedrooms.
Every room at Crescendo has spectacular views, and the Master Suite is no exception.
Everything about Crescendo is spacious:  the Master Ensuite, inclusive.
By itself, in fact, Crescendo's Master Suite IS a private retreat.
Every bedroom has its own private ensuite, but the Master Ensuite is especially sweet.
2 sinks & a 2-person steam-shower.  The view from the 2-person jetted tub, though, is breathtaking.
Did I mention that the Master Suite is REALLY sweet!
Yes!  I so deserve this!
Bottom's up!  If susceptible to vertigo, you might not want to take in this view.
Holidays at Crescendo are wholly magical.
For the holidays, our 12' Christmas Tree adds a festive note to the Great Room's rich ambiance.
Weddings at Crescendo are quite memorable.
Weddings at Crescendo are dramatic, as well.  What a gorgeous bride!
The ceremony ...
... the crew, the ambiance ...
... the meal:  mmm...
... the guests ...
... and, of course, the toast to the Bride (especially) and the groom.
The newlyweds.  View from the pool to one of Crescendo's decks.
Hmmm.  What are they up to?
Hmmm.  Is this foreplay or after-play?  Oh well.  Either way, it's newlyweds having fun.
Ahh...Summer weddings at Crescendo are breathtaking.
What a great moment?  Our goal, in fact, is to help to create memorable experiences.
A proud dad, an angelic bride.
Do you ... I do.
There is virtually no limit, with a slopeside wedding, and ...
... the photo opportunities are endless.
The bridesmaids getting ready for makeup and hair.  Fun, fun, fun.
And here are the bridesmaids with the groomsmen.
Rub-a-dub-dub, all the bridesmaids in a tub:  the Master Ensuite tub, that is.
Incredible!
Night or day, there is something magical about white weddings.
A memorable moment - captured.
Honey, let's ditch the wedding party and go Snowboarding!  Do you think anyone will notice?
It's arrived!  Biking at Big White.  Grand opening June 2017.
Big White officially began constructing a world-class, lift-serviced mountain biking experience.
The trails have been master-planned by the industry's best.
The authentic, grassroots biking adventure, is slated for enduro, downhill, & freeride experiences.
Family flow trails provide feature rich learning environments, encouraging controlled trail speed.
Expert and pro-level trails, though, are available to more experienced, ...
... more competitive ...
... more aggressive ...
... did I say more competitive ...
... riders.

“ouststanding!”
Reviewed 12 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

I had stayed here recently for a 20 man bachelor party and golf trip. This place was wicked! Plenty of space and entertainment for all the guys. Poker table, ping pong table, theater room with a fully equipped wet bar, indoor-outdoor hot tub, and a well equipped kitchen. Has a nice bbq area with a gas fire pit as well. We had a catered meal at this place and we were able to seat all 20 people in the dining area to eat together. I must say, every guest including myself was a little skeptical before we got there but we were blown away and everyone said they wanted to come back here to make it into a annual trip. The owner/operator of the crescendo was helpful with any questions and suggestions and easy to deal with as well.

Hey Taka -

"THIS PLACE WAS WICKED!" I totally love that comment!

You guys were GREAT! Probably the best bachelor party group we've had. Thanks for being so very respectful of our home.

Remember, if there is anything you all would like us to try and purchase, install, or program that might make future stays even that much better for you all, please let me know.

Best!

“Outstanding property”
Reviewed 1 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Crescendo was above and beyond our expectations. From relaxing in the pool or sitting back in the theatre enjoying a movie to the amazing views from the balcony. From booking to departure Mitch and Dan were both very helpful and accommodating.

“Crescendo is a huge, amazing, conveniently-located home”
Reviewed 11 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

What an amazing, awesome, fun experience! Our family had such a great time, and the house is sooooo convenient to the Village. Our son learned how to ski (from scratch) and was able to walk back to Crescendo for breaks and lunch between group lessons. At night, the movie theater (complete with popcorn) and game rooms kept us busy and together! Thanks.

Thanks, John, for the awesome review! Yes, it's so hard to explain on the website just what a game-changer Crescendo's location is to the Village. So glad you and your son were able to experience that. It definitely makes a huge difference. So glad, too, you all took time to experience Crescendo's amenities, the Theatre especially, which is always able to stream the latest releases of virtually all of the popular movies. Best! Mitch

“Our Perfect Wedding at Crescendo”
Reviewed 20 February 2018 for a stay in September 2017

In September 2017, my husband and I were married at Crescendo. From the moment we began our planning with the owner, we felt supported and encouraged. Mitch has a helpful, flexible, and accommodating staff that takes care of the venue during the bike and ski season. As soon as we stepped foot inside Crescendo, we knew it would be the perfect place to stay during our wedding weekend and to hold our 120 person ceremony and reception. The indoor space gave a unique house party feel to our wedding and due to the magnificent architecture of the chalet, décor was kept to a minimum with floral arrangements, greenery, and “enchanted forest” details. Guests were able to hang out in the theatre room (where we positioned the main bar), in the great room (where staff removed all furniture and we made a dance floor with a DJ set-up), around the beautiful dessert table (dining room), and outside on the covered patio (where we had a band, a cocktail hour bar, and patio seating. I was able to get ready in the master bedroom, which provided a perfect dressing room for the makeup artist, hair stylist, and bridal party to spend the afternoon. The catering company (Details Catering) were familiar with the venue and took advantage of the modern kitchen area to create and serve canapés throughout the venue (we chose not to have a sit down dinner). The outdoor space at Crescendo provided a scenic and ethereal venue for the wedding ceremony. We were able to set out over 100 rented chairs and the event company we hired (Blushing Pear Event Planning and Rentals) created an elegant aisle and arched area for the ceremony to take place. At the end of the weekend, we didn’t want to leave the luxury of this chalet at Big White. Our guests were blown away by the magic of our wedding weekend at Crescendo. If you are interested in getting married at Big White Ski Resort, Crescendo is the place to do it!

Melissa, what can I say? You are genuinely beautiful: inside and out. It is no wonder that you, as a bride, were drop dead gorgeous. Michael, too – wow – so handsome. Does he ever stop smiling? As a couple, together, you made the event magical. You, and not Crescendo, deserve all the credit. Thank you, though, for your thoughtful review and your generously kind comments.
