Overview

About the property

in design-DISTINCTIVE; in quality-UNCOMPROMISING; in amenities-EXTRAORDINARY

With pleasure, we welcome you to Crescendo:

a world-class home of unparalleled excellence -

classic elegance ... like never before.

Crescendo is not merely a ski chalet, it’s a fortress! At about 5200 square feet, Crescendo is Big White’s largest single-family home offered as a rental accommodation. More importantly, though, at Big White, Crescendo defines “luxury,” and every aspect about the home was designed for practicality and for comfort.

From it's distinctive look to its uncompromising design, Crescendo, is a testament to architectural genius. A work of Art, actually, where contemporary ingenuity (and elegance) interact seamlessly (and harmoniously) with nature’s raw beauty. Embedded into the mountain’s granite base, and following closely the mountain’s natural contour, Crescendo was brilliantly engineered to be an extension of the mountain itself.

Five very separate / private areas are created by half-rotations around our striking glass-block spiraled staircase. So, while Crescendo is at first a 3 bedroom 5 bathroom home, our rooms may be configured in various ways so that Crescendo may have up to 6 bedrooms. Crescendo, too, has enough fixed and movable beds to sleep 22. Our intention, though, is to comfortably sleep 15.

Three of our bedrooms are dedicated wholly to that use: the Master Bedroom & the two Guest Bedrooms. The Theatre and Game Room are our flexible bedrooms, meaning that the rooms can easily serve as being both entertainment areas and private bedrooms. While cleverly designed and hidden, the beds in both of those rooms are custom-made and permanent. Also, the bedding/mattresses are of the same exceptional quality as the dedicated bedrooms.

The bed/bath configurations may be found elsewhere on this site. Note, though, that even when not including the use of any of our sleeper couches, Crescendo has 14 separate beds (1 King, 5 Queens, 8 Twins). We additionally have various portable beds that can be setup upon request. These include cots and air beds for adults, portable cots & sleeping bags for toddlers (up to about age five), and a Pack 'n Play for an infant.

Almost all of Crescendo's bedrooms have their own private ensuites. The master ensuite, though, is especially sweet. Not only does it boast a two-person steam-shower, but the two-person jetted tub overlooks the Great Room, providing views to the fireplace, to the ski slopes, and to the Monashee mountains.

While Crescendo can’t lay claim to creating the Monashee Mountains, we can lay claim to capturing it. The unprecedented panoramas through the Great Room’s twenty-eight foot floor-to-ceiling windows are truly breathtaking. From virtually every room, in fact, your eye can feast endlessly on awe-inspiring beauty: a beauty that remains the foundational ingredient to your realizing the depth of tranquility that can be experienced at Crescendo.

Practical elegance is another way to describe Crescendo, and that description extends also to its SmartHome features. Whether you’re technologically savvy or technologically challenged, you’ll be intrigued by the intuitive nature of Crescendo’s home automation systems. When you arrive to Crescendo, merely touch “Hello," and the home awakens. Key lighting guides you through each room, and the fireplace and whole-house XM music automatically activate setting the ambiance while you settle in. You’ll enjoy experimenting with the touchpanels in each room, through which computer-integrated lighting, audio/video, and climate-control are all at your command.

Sixteen amplified zones allow music to be localized or distributed throughout the entire house (garage and outside decks, inclusive). While XM radio is provided for you, Crescendo can shake hands with your Android, Apple, and Windows devices, allowing the system to read, display, control, and distribute your personal collection as well.

Non-Skiers? No Problem!

Staying at Crescendo is like being at a private lodge. Skiers and non-skiers both rave about Crescendo’s entertainment options, which is why Crescendo is enjoyed by guests even outside of ski season.

Late Spring to early Fall, in fact, are my favorite times at Crescendo. Just take a look at our Outdoor Play areas, where you'll find resort-like comfort. During the day, move freely between our pool and picnic table areas. Later, enjoy the sunset, seated around our gas-fired Fire Table.

Your chef, too, will enjoy the experience with you, as our new Grilling Station is fully integrated in that area. A 38” Napoleon Grill (that’s 42 hamburgers), built into and surrounded by granite-topped bar seating. With an abundance of counter space on either side of the grill, meals flow smoothly from grilling platters - to the grill - to serving platters. The grilling station is a convenient extension of the nearby kitchen, so when it comes to providing an awesome gourmet experience, we’ve got you covered both inside and out.

Further, the entire space around both the Patio and Pool areas has been leveled, tiered, and landscaped. Transitioning between the two areas is seamless, accommodating seating for more than eighty people. Whether for an outdoor event (e.g., wedding) or for an intimate romantic dinner for two, Crescendo’s outdoor space is truly exceptional.

What's that you ask? You want to know about some of Crescendo's other amenities? Well, for one, Crescendo’s Media Room is outstanding! The movie screen is 110”, with 7.1 surround sound (not to mention two 12” subwoofers). More than 1100 movie titles are at your fingertips, literally. They can be reviewed by scrolling through their electronic jackets projected onto the screen, and controlled, of course, via the two touchpanels in that room (yes, you’ll find a customized remote controller, as well).

For you Card Sharks, we have a Poker Table that seats six. For you tennis players, we have ... no, we don't have tennis courts; but we do have a Professional Ping Pong Table. And, for you billiards buffs, we have Bumper Pool: much more exciting (and takes up less room) than a regulation Pool Table.

Fitness-Inclined?

No problem with body image here! Crescendo is equipped with 2 unique high-end fitness systems: the PowerTower and the SwimGym. The PowerTower was designed for high performance functional sports training (and clinical physical rehabilitation). Crescendo’s SwimGym equally adds a novel dimension to recreation, to exercise therapy, and to sports medicine. It’s non-aerated system creates an underwater current for stationary lap swimming.

Our Signature Dish

Clearly the main course at Big White is the 25 ft of champagne powder that is served at Big White each year. We have told by our guests, though, that Crescendo’s signature dish is, without doubt, our indoor-outdoor pool/Jacuzzi.

Special Events

Crescendo is the perfect venue for family or Corporate retreats, for weddings, and more. Crescendo’s expansive ceilings and open-layout combine to make Crescendo warm and inviting: whether the event is small and intimate or over 100 strong. Also, Big White’s setting, of course, is wholly magical.

Coming to Kelowna for Golfing or for the Wine Festival? Crescendo can accommodate you and your golfing buddies (or multi-generational families).

Golf: Crescendo is an incredible home to host a group of golfing buddies. Extremely convenient to have the entire group under the same roof. World-class golfing is nearby, and at the end of the day Crescendo becomes a hub for relaxation and entertainment.

Summer: Big White is now open during the summer months as well. See their website for planned festivals and activities. Hiking, Guided Nature walks, and more are open 7 days per week. For those who only want to hike down (or not hike at all), a Chair Lift to the peak is open on the weekends.

Mountain Biking: Many biking trails have already been cut into the slope. Enjoy those now at your leisure. Numerous trails also available across the road from Big White, through some of Canada's finest National Forestry. Look, too, for Big White's announcement of when they'll have one of their chair lifts modified for carrying bikes up the hill, along with onsite bike rentals and equipment.
