With pleasure, we welcome you to Crescendo:
a world-class home of unparalleled excellence -
classic elegance ... like never before.

Crescendo is not merely a ski chalet, it’s a fortress! At about 5200 square feet, Crescendo is Big White’s largest single-family home offered as a rental accommodation. More importantly, though, at Big White, Crescendo defines “luxury,” and every aspect about the home was designed for practicality and for comfort.

From it's distinctive look to its uncompromising design, Crescendo, is a testament to architectural genius. A work of Art, actually, where contemporary ingenuity (and elegance) interact seamlessly (and harmoniously) with nature’s raw beauty. Embedded into the mountain’s granite base, and following closely the mountain’s natural contour, Crescendo was brilliantly engineered to be an exte...

My pleasure, Nina, and thanks for taking the time to post the great review! So glad you all got to experience Crescendo for the family festivities. You also got to take advantage of one of Big White's quieter periods: outside of ski season & outside...More

We had a family gathering (13 people) at Crescendo and stayed for 5 days. The property was clean and really well-maintened. Everyone had his own space yet it was easy to get altogether for meals (kitchen, dining and living room were more than large enough)....More

Thanks, Genevieve, for the thoughtful review. Yes, I understand it has been blistering hot in Kelowna, and it is quite nice to be able to escape some of that by being at Big White, instead. Can you believe it, too, that Crescendo is one of...More

About the neighbourhood
Convenience is Everything!

Simply stated, Crescendo’s location is second to none. First, Crescendo is a true ski-in/ski-out chalet. Leave the home through our ski breezeway, and then ski/board down to Happy Valley, to the Gondola, or to three different chairlifts. The Plaza Chair and the Gondola return you to the village, and both the Ridge Rocket (4 person) and Snow Ghost (6 person) drop you atop one of Big White’s peaks.

Convenience – for You
Need to make a rest stop, or to break for coffee, hot chocolate, or lunch? Want to change-out a layer of clothing? If you’re staying at Crescendo, convenience is continually yours. Situated at the very corner of Hummingbird Run & Gondola Way, Crescendo is only steps to the main village. The ski run, in fact, is gro...
