To Entertain or to be Entertained?
If that’s the question, then Crescendo says, “Yes” to both. Crescendo at Big White, in fact, is the perfect venue for family or corporate retreats, for weddings, and more. Crescendo’s expansive ceilings and open layout combine to make our Ski Chalet warm and inviting: whether the event is small and intimate or over 100 strong. Time and again, caterers and chefs have commented about how well Crescendo’s kitchen is appointed and stocked. It’s true, though, if it is not the best of the best, it is not for Crescendo. Our commercial stove-top, double convection ovens, and microwave are by Viking; the fridge by SubZero; and the two dishwashers by Miele (yes, two dishwashers in the kitchen and a third in the Media Room’s bar).
Weddings at Crescendo are limited only by one’s imagination.
Where else, for example, could the Bridesmaids congregate all at one time in the Master Ensuite’s tub?
An audio/video slide show of the Bride and Groom from birth to present day is captivating, as well, and readily accomplished in the Media Room from your device (computer, phone, tablet) to our projector (and 110″ screen).
We’ve also embedded into Crescendo a studio quality wireless microphone system, allowing for ceremonies to take place both inside and slopeside. Volume, of course, is controlled via the touchpanels, through which also any or all of the 16 indoor/outdoor audio zones can be activated.

Holidays, Retreats, and Group Events
Christmas at Crescendo is wholly magical. Why only dream of a White Christmas when it can be your reality?
Crescendo at Big White has been privileged to host many types of retreats, including multi-generational family retreats and business retreats (e.g., Rip Curl, Canada). As the Media Room is wired to shake hands with your personal laptop, tablet, or phone, computerized presentations are a breeze, and they are projected in High Definition (1080p) onto Crescendo’s 110” screen. A fully-equipped bar (with its own microwave, ice-maker, fridge, dishwasher) complements our Media Room as well.
Photos of Crescendo’s Theatre/Media Room (and bar) can be seen here.
All Under the Same Roof
Wouldn’t it be more fun, if everyone in your group were able to stay at a luxury accommodation under the same roof at the same time? For many of our groups, that specific factor was critical to their choosing Crescendo. From May to mid-November, in fact, Crescendo is largely frequented by groups of golfing buddies.
To golf aficionados, Kelowna is a golfing mecca. The climate, the long/dry season, the natural beauty, and the accessibility are all contributory. The number and variety of uniquely distinct courses that offer diverse play - from the beginner to the pro - set Kelowna apart as well.
