Crescendo - The Cover Story & The Fashion Photoshoot

Crescendo is making headlines again as our luxury Big White ski chalet features on the cover story of the January/February 2020 issue of Boulevard Magazine.

It was a pleasure to host the magazine for their stunning shoot, and they were full of praise for Crescendo, stating:   

On the slopes of Big White Ski Resort, an architectural marvel nestles between the popular Woodcutter and Happy Valley Way Ski Runs.  With its sharply geometrid design and a tilted, angular room rising from the mountain slope and reaching up towards the western sky, the Crescendo ski chalet is a visual landmark unlike any other.

Out of all the buildings I’ve ever done, says architect Denis Apchin, this is the one that my family loves the most. … If they had a home away from home, it would be this one.”

Crescendo as Base Camp for Fashion PhotoshootCrescendo was also used as Base Camp for a fashion photoshoot, which was published in the magazine.  You can find out more and take a peek around Big White Ski Resort by checking out the article here (pages 26-31 and pages 32-37).

Big White Ski Resort Ranked #2 in the World

Big White Ski Resort Ranked #2 in the World

Big White's Village

Recently, Reader's Digest came out with their list of the 14 Best Ski Resorts WORLDWIDE, and Big White came in at #2.  Nope, Whistler didn't even make the cut. 

Interestingly, Snowbird (Utah) came in at #6.  Before discovering Big White, Snowbird was my go to ski resort.  At one time, in fact, we had made a bid on a couple of timeshares at Snowbird.  Thankfully, that purchase never materialized, as, it was at Big White, of course, that we built Crescendo.  With having more than 300’ of fresh champagne snowfall each season, its intimate family-friendly setting and Aussie-influenced energy, Big White is so deserving of Crescendo, and vice versa.  Both, after all, are award-winning.  Crescendo, in fact, took home the 2019 Oscar at the World Ski Awards ceremony in Kitzbühel, Austria for “Best Ski Chalet – Canada(see Crescendo takes home the Oscar).

Below are the 14 Ski Resorts listed in the article, but you may read the full article by clicking here.  

#1:  Aspen Mountain, Colorado

#2:  Big White, British Columbia

#3:  Passo Tonale, Italy

#4:  Kitzsteinhorn, Austria (Kaprun and Zell am See)

#5:  Andermatt, Switzerland
