Clean, Spacious, Right on Hill

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 and there was more than enough room for all of us. Property had lots of parking, space for sleeping and lounging. Kitchen was large enough to handle all the food for 4 days. The fireplace was also a nice added touch. Things got slightly squished in the entrance-way with 9 sets of coats/skis/boots, but overall is not a problem at all.

As a property owner/manager Gabriel is very upfront about the rules and laid things out very plainly. It was nice to have things clearly communicated in such a way (I don't appreciate ambiguity when booking a trip). Gabriel was also very timely with his responses, accepting transfers, and providing us with trip information. The checkout process was also very simple.

I definitely recommend this property. I'll be staying here next year for sure!

Fire place smokes up the condo when u start it and this made us nervous so we did not use it. With no fire place it is dradty with temperatures in minus 20. We would come back to the exact same place as the rest - Foose ball, hot tub, kitchen, beds, ski in where amazing.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review Ian. I wish we would have known you were cold in the media room. We would have addressed it as there is in-floor heat and it should be warm down there. Gabriel Higham

Great Location and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

An awesome location for hitting the hill. It was so close to the gondola that we skied in/out for lunch!

Kitchen is well stocked and there was plenty of space for our large group. The basement was warm and comfortable and had a lot of space to let ski stuff dry.

The entire house was clean and cozy, with warm blankets for the beds and lots of towels.

Plenty of parking in the driveway for our multiple vehicles. We will be returning again in the future!

Family ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 3 generation family ski vacation at Kicking Horse. After a day on the slopes, we skiied into our cabin, enjoyed dinner together, relaxed in the hottub, and warmed up by the real wood fire. And lots of beds with crisp sheets, so we slept well, and were ready for another day on the slopes. We hope to be back next year!
