About Gabriel Higham

We are two avid skiers who bought our house for ski trips with family and friends and eventual retirement. To help pay the bills we rent it out when we aren't using it. We first skied at Kicking Horse in 2004 as part of our yearly ski trip with friends - that year trying out the eastern side of the Canadian Rockies. We had skied Whistler a couple of times and knew we loved Canadians. They are so nice, cheerful and friendly people. Our day at Kicking Horse was the favorite of everyone on the trip. We couldn't believe how great the snow was, how big the mountain was and how few people there were. My wife and I actually got engaged at the top of Lake Louise. She asked me to marry her and I said yes and she presented me with candy lollipop rings (we later upgraded them). Anyway, we looked at buying at the time but weren't in a financial position to do so. But in 2009 we were in a much better position and so we decided to come back to double check if everything we remembered about it was true. It was and we happened to stumble upon a great deal on this home and jumped at the opportunity. With any life changing event there is always a little voice that wonders if you are doing the right thing. That voice went away and never came back after we had to stop for a black wolf in the middle of the road between Banff and Golden. We knew this was the place for us. We decided to name the house after that black wolf we saw. We hope that you will consider experiencing our wonderful home and get as much enjoyment out of it as we do.

Gabriel Higham purchased this house in 2010

Why Gabriel Higham chose Golden

We love to ski and Kicking Horse has some of the best skiing in North America. We absolutely love the snow and varied terrain of Kicking Horse. And the views are to die for.

A perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house in a perfect place of Kicking Horse in Golden. We had plenty of room for our 6 kids (all teens and young adults) and they had lots to do close by. Gabe was a great host and answered all of our questions with long, complete answers about things to do in the area. And as the mom, I was thrilled that there was so little expected of us to leave the property on our last day. I didn't have to start cleaning on my last day of vacation. And I was thrilled to get my deposit returned SO quickly! Thanks again. We hope to see you again soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, It was wonderful to have your family at our home. And so glad you got to experience all that Golden has to offer. That is an awesome point about your vacation not being spent cleaning up on your last day. We will clean up after you. You can just relax and enjoy yourselves. Gabriel Higham

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

"Luxurious Ski in/Ski Chalet" accurately describes this house. Our family of 8 stayed here for 4 nights and it worked perfectly for us. There is lots of room for living and sleeping, it has a very functional kitchen and dining room and the hot tub and steam shower were much appreciated. The massive timber frame construction is very impressive and there are lots of windows. And at the end of an excellent day of skiing we skied to the front door. Wonderful!

Comfortable, well set up home

  • 5 of 5

Had a ski weekend with 3 families at the property and it was a hit. Property has lots of common areas to relax in and nice, spacious bedrooms. House was well stocked with all the household items and games one would require for a stay. Ski in/out location is a huge bonus as well. Communication of property manager/owner was excellent. Would come again.

Great stay in a terrific house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at the house on a 3-generation family ski trip. We loved the space and layout. The decor is fabulous and it had a well-stocked kitchen with everything we needed. The heated floors and hot tub were particular highlights! We did encounter a few minor maintenance problems with the dishwasher and range, but the owner said he would take care of them after our stay and they didn't interfere with our enjoyment of this gorgeous house! Only thing to note is that, while it is definitely ski-IN, it's only ski-OUT when the road is snow covered (which it wasn't in March). To get to the nearest lift, you need to ski down a road a couple of blocks, cross a larger road, then you can get on a trail to the lifts. I'm sure this is fine through most of the season, but with bare pavement on the road for us it meant either a somewhat lengthy walk with your skis down the road OR a climb/scramble up a steep hill behind the house. Overall, still a terrific stay and Gabe was a very responsive host!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review Katy. Hope to have you back again. Sorry for the issue with the dishwasher and range. I'm flying up right now to take care of them - and do some skiing. Gabriel Higham
