In September 2017, my husband and I were married at Crescendo. From the moment we began our planning with the owner, we felt supported and encouraged. Mitch has a helpful, flexible, and accommodating staff that takes care of the venue during the bike and ski season. As soon as we stepped foot inside Crescendo, we knew it would be the perfect place to stay during our wedding weekend and to hold our 120 person ceremony and reception. The indoor space gave a unique house party feel to our wedding and due to the magnificent architecture of the chalet, décor was kept to a minimum with floral arrangements, greenery, and “enchanted forest” details. Guests were able to hang out in the theatre room (where we positioned the main bar), in the great room (where staff removed all furniture and we made a dance floor with a DJ set-up), around the beautiful dessert table (dining room), and outside on the covered patio (where we had a band, a cocktail hour bar, and patio seating. I was able to get ready in the master bedroom, which provided a perfect dressing room for the makeup artist, hair stylist, and bridal party to spend the afternoon. The catering company (Details Catering) were familiar with the venue and took advantage of the modern kitchen area to create and serve canapés throughout the venue (we chose not to have a sit down dinner). The outdoor space at Crescendo provided a scenic and ethereal venue for the wedding ceremony. We were able to set out over 100 rented chairs and the event company we hired (Blushing Pear Event Planning and Rentals) created an elegant aisle and arched area for the ceremony to take place. At the end of the weekend, we didn’t want to leave the luxury of this chalet at Big White. Our guests were blown away by the magic of our wedding weekend at Crescendo. If you are interested in getting married at Big White Ski Resort, Crescendo is the place to do it!
Crescendo is a beautiful place , it was a perfect house for our family o 16 and we love everything about that , location is amazing and the views breath taking , we really love it and for sure we will be back in the future.
So much space and you cant really ask for more.
Kitchen equipped with everything you need to prepare any meals and that's why we didn't event went once to dine out.
We spent all our four evenings at the house as its equipped with so many diffrent things to be not bored and be entertained .
A big thank you to Mitch, Sheila and Dan for looking after our group during our stay at Crescendo. It was such a memorable stay and the accommodation was out of this world! Everything about this house is incredible. The heated pool, games room, theatre room and the amazing kitchen. Also it’s the best ski in/out on the mountain, with a short walk to the village. Thanks again Mitch, your property is truly outstanding
We are so grateful for an amazing stay at your beautiful home! Our guests were so impressed. Many of our younger crew have never had the chance to stay in such luxury. This made the experience even more special for us. The ping pong table, games etc were all put to good use. Oh..and that hot tub is amazing!
Your extra touches like the cups, vinegar and coffee are so appreciated, thank you, those cups are so neat!
Upon arrival the garage door opened and there were three people there to greet us and help unload our vehicle. This WAY exceeded expectations. Sheila did a great job showing us how the home functions.
We hope to be able to do a repeat next year.

We recently had our annual corporate retreat at the Crescendo at Big White. Although it was a small group of 12 senior executives, the space and location were perfect. The team loved the spot as it was away from distractions and completely self contained with all the needed amenities and upto-date modern technology, which aided in us being able to focus on the purpose of the trip. The media room was a perfect space to hold presentations, with the comfortable theater style seats. We will definitely be back each year.
Crescendo is a gorgeous building that stands out from the surrounding homes, and is a complete smart home, in every way. I’ve never seen anything like it.
- How often do we get to stay in a smart home? Very cool experience!
- Crescendo easily accommodated our party, with capacity to spare. The home is well kept and very clean.
- The children and adults loved the pool: really cool indoor/outdoor concept.
- The movie theater and the suite of movies were amazing. It was like an unlimited selection of entertainment.
- The steam shower was an experience!
- The BBQ area and built-in sound system was the perfect private patio experience.
- Also, it was super quiet; it was like we had the whole Village to ourselves. Being from the city, I personally liked that.
Mitch, your service was amazing, and the property managers were a call away and showed up promptly when needed. Crescendo is a pretty cool place, and I recommend staying here.
Heads-up to those visiting in the summer. Crescendo is on a mountain, so the nights can get rather chilly. Great for using Crescendo’s Jacuzzi, but one should be prepared by bringing along more than just merely shorts and t-shirts. Another tip is to gas-up before leaving Kelowna, as there are no gas stations between there and Big White (you’ll need at least 80 kilometers of fuel to get to and from Crescendo).
Thanks Mitch for supplying the location for our memories.
Everything from the initial email about booking was fantastic. Mitch looked after our group from start to finish, taking the time to ensure that we had everything we needed. Our group was 11 professional guys, up there in August and it was absolutely incredible. The AC kept the house a nice temperature, and the perfect giant hottub/small pool could be hot or cold. The space in the house was fantastic, and the place is absolutely top notch. There was an local handyman available to fix anything that was needed (we didn't need him). He has been looking after the house for almost 10 years and knows it inside and out.
I've never been on a more comfortable bed, and the sleeping accommodations gave all 11 guys their own beds (plus two small kids beds to spare).
The entire group was absolutely wowed, and felt it was worth every penny.
To sum it up, stunning home, incredibly well equipped with everything, and top notch service from the owner.
