For those lucky enough to be at Crescendo
last week, right now, next week
- Near 12″ of fresh powder in the last week.
- Still snowing right now.
- Additional snow in the forecast for later this week.
The Snow is Here!
The snow is here! Plenty of it, in fact, at Big White already. Fortunately, after a few consecutive days of snow, yesterday the sun came out providing a spectacular backdrop for the wedding that took place at Crescendo. Congratsto the newlyweds!
Not many new techy gadgets at Crescendo this year, but we’ve made considerable improvements and upgrades to enhance you experience (as if Crescendo needed any enhancements). What types of enhancements? Below are just a few.
Enhancements have been made to the 7.1 Surround Sound System in the theatre. New amp and pre-amp providing better sound separation. The two subwoofers that are now separated in stereo, in fact, totally rock!
Not to forget that last year we canned all our DVDs, and now have a 24 Terabyte movie server, with more than 850 movies that stream digitally into the Theatre. Check-out our constantly growing selection at https://c.mymovies.dk/perlman (password: 2504486299).
Custom cabinetry and cushioned seating in the garage have been added for your Ping Pong, Wii, and Workout experiences.
UV tinting on the Pool & Ski Entry Doors, and custom fit shears on the glass block staircase, now make the home’s climate more controllable for your comfort.
1000 count and 1500 count Egyptian Cotton Sheets have been added to provide the ultimate in coziness at the end of the day.
We’ve added several small appliances to our gourmet kitchen (most at the request of our guests), and we have a brand new BBQ grille.
Crescendo has also undergone a cosmetic overhaul. Practically the entire home has been repainted, the cabinetry re-stained, and the floors stripped and re-varnished. Also, check this out. Our two art walls are finally no longer bare.
Direct Flights from LAX
Great news also for those living in Southern California. United Airlines, beginning 19 December, will be flying direct to/from Los Angles (LAX) and Kelowna (YLW). Leaving LA at 7:00 pm and arriving in Kelowna at 10:00 pm, means that even the workaholic can fit in a weekend of world-class skiing at Big White, and pamper themselves in a world-class home.
Watch for Deals or Take a Tour
Also, if you know when you are going to be at Big White, and you’d like to tour Crescendo, please let me know. Especially if I’m at Crescendo at the time, I’d be happy to show you around and, perhaps, share some wine and some gaming. After all, I’m always looking for new victims to beat in Ping Pong.

Hi Mitch –
I have been meaning to send a note for quite some time now, however, with the holiday season I keep getting distracted.
Thank you so much for enabling myself and my guests to have a wonderful time at Crescendo this past November. The property is absolutely stunning and it was the perfect setting for the party. Everyone had a fabulous time and we’re in awe of the beautiful home you have created.
Hopefully we can meet some time when you and Dixon are in the Okanagan Valley again.
Happy Holidays & all the best in the New Year.
Reflecting again on our week’s stay at Crescendo in early September this past year. What a place! We had no idea when we saw it under construction what “mad” technical wizards you were. The TV/Movie room with that incredible 110″ plus screen was a treat. Your sound system is wonderful. Especially in the Great Room, though, it is to die for. Great state-of-the art Gourmet Kitchen.
We really enjoyed the indoor/outdoor Spa. The steam shower up in the master bath with all those shower heads pointed at you was trick and very relaxing. The 180 degree plus views of the lush tree covered valley below and the mountains off in the distance are wonderful.
We will be very glad to hide out in luggage when you guys come back up in the winter. Lastly, we both felt a wonderful sense of peacefullness and beauty both indoors and out. A great way to spend our Anniversary. We love you guys!
