At Big White, Crescendo defines “Luxury”
A Fortress Disguised as a Chalet
Crescendo is not merely a ski chalet, it’s a fortress! At more than 5000 square feet, Crescendo is Big White’s largest single-family home made available for rental accommodation and lodging. More importantly, though, at Big White, Crescendo defines “luxury,” and every aspect of our ski chalet was designed for practicality and for comfort.
Crescendo, in fact, is the result of architectural genius, where contemporary ingenuity/elegance and nature’s raw beauty harmoniously combine. Embedded into the mountain’s granite base, and following closely the mountain’s natural contour, through its split-level plan Crescendo was engineered to be an extension of the mountain itself. Each half-rotation around the spiraled staircase divides the front and back portions of each floor by ten feet. In at least five very separate/private areas, then, Crescendo comfortably accommodates twenty-two adults. (click here to see how)
While each room captures views of the slopes and/or of the majestic Monashee Mountains, the views from the Great Room- Kitchen-Dining Room are absolutely breathtaking. While cooking, dining, or relaxing, twenty-eight feet of floor-to-ceiling windows provide unprecedented panoramas upon which the eye may endlessly feast. The master ensuite, which overlooks the Great Room, shares the same view

Wired for Wireless
More than 7 ½ miles of network cable unify Crescendo’s systems. We’re even wired for wireless, and in more ways than one! That is, in key locations throughout the home, we’ve embedded the most advanced receivers, so that you can connect wirelessly to the internet from any location (read more about how “we’re wired”)
Just Another Day in Paradise
Ever been to Disneyland? I have, and I understand what happens beneath the park’s surface may be more intriguing than what happens at eye-level. And so it is with Crescendo. You may discover during your visit, for example, flush-mount vents suddenly (read more about paradise – Crescendo at Big White)
Custom is Customary
Excluding the furniture, everything at Crescendo was custom designed and built. Honed quartzite slate is not only the backdrop for the 25’ tall fireplace, but it covers several portions of key walls (inside and outside), as well as the pool and each of the showers.

Down Under & Under Down
The Aussie influence permeates Big White’s culture and, at Crescendo, “no worries” means “no worries.” During your stay, in fact, the temperature in each room is monitored remotely (via the internet), ensuring climatized stability and comfort at all times.
We realize that extreme skiing on the slopes requires extreme pampering off the slopes. When you retire for the night, then, you’ll delight in sandwiching yourself between down pillow toppers and down comforters. With the addition of 1500 thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, you can be rest assured that your rest will be assured.
