The awards keep pouring in for Big White Ski Resort.

One of the resort’s chalets, Crescendo, was voted “Canada’s Best Ski Chalet” at the seventh annual World Ski Awards in Austria on Saturday night.

Crescendo was up against six other chalets, including four Whistler properties and two in Revelstoke. The award was done by a public vote, which had Crescendo owner Mitch Perlman in tears when he learned his chalet had won the award.

“Not because the award is such an honour, which of course it is, but because of how honoured I felt that my guests—those who’ve stayed at Crescendo and who love Crescendo as much as I do—made this happen, first by nominating Crescendo for the award and then by casting their votes,” Perlman said in a press release.

“In total, over 1.6 million votes were cast, so being the 2019 winner was no small feat and a testament to the loyalty of Crescendo’s discriminating fans.”

Crescendo, which is located at the corner of Hummingbird Run and Gondola Way, is one of the most sought-after chalets on the mountain. The 5,200 square-foot retreat can comfortably sleep up to 22 people, and it is fully automated and geothermally heated.

“We’re so honoured to be home to the number one chalet in Canada,” Big White senior vice-president Michael J. Ballingall said. “We’re so proud of Mitch and his vision for the property. It’s one people have grown to love, respect and want to be part of.”
