Enjoy winter up on the hill
Do you have trouble maintaining friendships? Do people seem to be less and less available the longer they know you? Are you confused as to why your Mailman keeps losing wedding invitations people swear they mailed you?
Well my friend, you may be suffering from Socialitis. It’s a real problem facing millions of socially awkward Canadians. While the drug companies have been unable to treat it, we’ve discovered a cure.
“Buy a Place on a Ski Resort”, by Sherlock and Associates.
This safe, all natural remedy is proven to treat the worst cases of Socialitis (as well as Singleness). Happy clients report that within 3 months of buying their winter wonderland property their social lives improved dramatically. Colleagues began asking about holiday plans, extended family members started to visit and friends once believed to have left the country suddenly popped up and were available to hang out…at least on long weekends and after heavy snowfalls.
Wondering if now is the time to finally treat Socialitis? Consider these stats:
-There are currently 225 active listings at Big White alone.
-The average sold price at Big White is under $225,000 (significantly under the average listing price).
-Deals can now be readily found on Whistler, with many condos selling in the $350,000-$450,000 range.
Please contact us with your own specifics and we’ll get you set up with some current, active listings and the best deals on the BC Ski Resorts.
If you’ve ever considered investing in your own piece of your favourite ski resort, now is the time to take action. Let us know if we can be of service. We are able to introduce you to fantastic Realtors at all the major resorts including Silver Star, Red Mountain, Revelstoke Mountain, Sun Peaks, Big White and of course Whistler.
Warning: Side effects of “Buying a Place on a Ski Resort” include increased interest from the opposite sex, more enjoyable weekends and life long family memories.

Hey all –
It’s time for my annual update about Crescendo’s improvements, and there have been many.
First, though, a big THANKS to everyone staying at Crescendo outside of Ski Season this past year. Our May through September occupancy rate doubled, literally. Many groups of golfing buddies, in addition to weddings, corporate retreats, family reunions, and bachelor/bachelorette parties.
- New Movie Server
- – New Integra 9.2-channel amp/pre-amp.
It’s hard to believe that DVD (including BluRay) is old technology, but it is. So, we’ve removed our 450 DVDs, and have loaded everything onto a hard drive system: 24 terabytes, in fact. More than 850 titles (many in BluRay quality) now stream into the Theatre. Our movies are searchable on-line (we’ll give you the username/password at booking), as well as from the comfort of your couch (by title, by genre, and more). We’re experimenting with Netflix and Hulu (as if the 850 movies weren’t enough).We’ve also rewired for 3D, and may switch to a 1080p 3D projector next year.
The new Integra amp/pre-amp finally allows us to take full advantage of our two stereo 12” subwoofers. The range and separation of the voicing from the background special effects has also substantially improved the clarity. Even an old fart like me can now actually understand the dialogue.
Two Angstrom 2-way speakers with 8” Vectran drivers have been added to the Great Room. What does that mean? Simply put,the system rocks! We added a new iPod doc, which now accommodates the older iPods and the newer iPhones. Plug in your iPod/iPhone, and the system reads your playlists. The system displays your metadata on the touchpanels, and you have control & sound thereby.
Crescendo’s gourmet Kitchen has never been lacking. Still, we are very interested in accommodating your unique needs/wants/wishes, so we’ve continued to add the small appliances and other items based on our your feedback. This year, for example, we’ve added an Immersion Blender, Cuisinart Panini Maker, Cuisinart Waffle Iron (I still prefer the Mickey Mouse waffle maker, though), and so much more.
The Master Bedroom now has a 46” 1080p TV, with soundbar and sub-woofer. The TV is networked, so we may eventually allow it to talk to the MediaServer, so that the movies can stream into that room as well.
Motion detection has been enhanced and reprogrammed throughout the house, so that one can wander about at night without ever manually turning on/off any lights.
Internet – I can assure you, there is no one more impatient than me. Accordingly, we’ve substantially increased our internet speed. Also, just about annually we update Crescendo’s wireless access points (and we have five throughout the home), so that connectivity and speed are assured.
Some of you have seen/experienced our new Gaming that we added last year. A professional grade Ping Pong table, a Bumper Pool table, a Poker table, and a Nintendo Wii.
As always, we look forward to another great Ski Season. Again, if you are going to be on the mountain, please let me know (drMitch@drMitch.com). If I happen to be at Crescendo during your stay, I’d love to have you drop by.
Wishing you and yours the very best this holiday season,
Crescendo will get some major upgrades this summer. The first upgrade retires our 450+ DVD collection and Escient server. I know. It’s hard to think of DVDs as being “antiques”, but when it comes to streaming video and Media Servers, DVDs are old school. Instead, we plan to kick-off the summer with more than 600 Movie/TV titles (many of which are BluRay). These will all be stored on hard drives, which stream into the Theatre and play on our 110″ screen. The system we’re looking at, called Drobo.
