Crescendo Takes Home the Oscar
What an amazing week for Ski Crescendo!
We’ve made headlines after being awarded the Oscar for being "Canada’s Best Ski Chalet" at the 7th Annual World Ski Awards in Kitzbühel, Austria.
Votes for this award were cast by ski and travel industry experts, tour operators, the media, and the public, so it is an honour for Crescendo to be named the best in Canada. A huge "THANK YOU" to all of our guests and to all of Crescendo's fans worldwide. Without you, of course, the Oscar would have gone elsewhere.
Big White is Buzzing
Big White Ski Resort was about as excited as we were to hear about the award. Sharing the news of Crescendo's Oscar on the resort’s website, Senior Vice President, Michael J. Ballingall, stated:
“We’re so honoured to be home to the number one chalet in Canada. We’re so proud of Mitch and his vision for the property. It’s one people have grown to love, respect and want to be part of.”
Big White's blog about the award may be found here.
Our award win also made headlines further down the hill, as the story was featured on the Kelowna Capital News’ website.

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.
