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. One guest, in fact, shared that she'd "sent the architectural plans to St Peter, so when I get to heaven he will already have a start on my dream chalet."
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.
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. Six 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.
While each room captures views of the slopes and/or of the majestic Monashee Mountains, the views from the Great Room, from the Kitchen, and from the Dining Room are absolutely breathtaking. When cooking, dining, or relaxing, thirty feet of floor-to-ceiling windows provide unprecedented panoramas upon which the eye may endlessly feast. The master ensuite, which overlooks the Great Room, is advantaged by that same view.

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.
Waterfront and/or Beach
Property is NOT waterfront or within 30 minute drive of a lake, ocean or river.
Snow Skiing & Boarding
Ski/Board Out is directly to a downhill run from the property. Ski/Board In is directly back to the property (no walking).
Only steps to the village, and at the very corner of Hummingbird Run and Gondola Way, simply stated, this unit's location is second to none. Oh, did I say location? Not only does the unit boast true ski-in/out access (right to your door); but it is also virtually a stone's throw to the main village.+ More
