With winter nearly upon us, it’s true that right now everybody is probably thinking more about skis than pedals.
But this week, we stumbled across some pictures which had been shared by guests who stayed at Crescendo over the summer and we started reminiscing about another great season of mountain biking at Big White.
Our biking crazy guests had a blast as they rolled out of bed, hopped onto their bikes, out of Crescendo and straight down to the nearby chair lifts.
The lifts would then whisk them (and their bikes!) to the top of the mountain, where they found themselves in mountain biking heaven – with a choice of no less than 19 world-class biking trails at their feet.
At Big White, the trails offer something for everyone, with a wide range of clearly marked trails for all levels. The resort even features a gnarly jump trail, bike park, and more technical skill areas for those who want to test themselves and take their riding to the next level.
One of the great things about staying at Crescendo is that after a long day of biking it’s an easy ride home. Crescendo is nestled on the corner of the slopes – right by the Gondola and Hummingbird runs. So, when guests are all biked out and ready to hang up their helmets at the end of the day, they can just roll straight back into the house.

Who says it ain’t easy being green?
Ski Crescendo was specially-designed/built for both luxury and efficiency. That is, even though Crescendo is rather spacious (with 30' floor-to-ceiling glass overlooking the slope), we actually tread quite lightly on the environment. We're quite proud, in fact, to be referred to by our guests as being eco-friendly or as being the Big White's eco-chalet.
It was great to be recently recognized, too, as one of the greenest chalets in town by the Big White website , so we thought this would give us a great excuse to focus on Crescendo’s super smart eco features.
Ski Crescendo, Luxury Eco Chalet Big White
Ski Crescendo’s stunning accommodation is located at the heart of Big White village, nestled on the corner of the Hummingbird Run and Gondola Way. Crescendo is no ordinary chalet, it's a luxury eco chalet, which offers the perfect blend of comfort and efficiency.
The Heat is On!
It’s always cozy at Crescendo, with our economic
geothermal heating system.
Controlled by our smart system, every surface is warmed by an underground geothermal heating system. The system keeps your toes comfy, but also warms the room evenly from floor to about 6½ feet high!
The system even melts the snow around the perimeter of the jacuzzi, so when sitting on our jacuzzi's ledge, our guests never freeze their butts off.
Smart Efficient Lighting
Our heating isn't all that's efficient or smarty at Crescendo?
We’ve got smart lighting as well! Light sensors are fitted throughout the chalet and adjust depending on the time of day. The lights (and even our fireplace) also know when guests have left the room, and after a while they systematically dim and then turn themselves off.

It’s only October, but Big White Ski Resort has already been blanketed with some of its world-famous champagne powder!
This week, we were delighted (and somewhat surprised), when we took a peek outside Crescendo’s floor-to-ceiling windows and were met with a blanket of that beautiful white stuff! Overnight, the village was transformed into a winter wonderland!
Big White's ski season starts earlier than ever this year, so an early covering is perfect! Officially, then, it's time to finalize plans for that ski trip to British Columbia!
