Having first skied and snowboarded at Kicking Horse in 2006, we fell in love with the mountain. The snow here is second to none, the terrain diverse and we generally have the mountain to ourselves, even during peak times. Now, a few years later, we are able to fulfill our dream of owning a home on this fabulous resort at which our two children will definitely grow up to love skiing and boarding.
Arranny and John purchased this chalet in 2014
Having skied and snowboarded at Kicking Horse every year with family and friends, we thought it was time to make it easier to vacation here by setting up a home.
This home is not just in the mountains - being here makes you feel like you are amongst the beauty of nature from the smell of pine needles outside the door to the A-frame timber construction and mountain home décor.
We were a group of 7 friends (3 couples +1) who came up for a weekend of skiing. Our stay at Pioneer Lodge couldn't have been better. It is spacious, comfortable, clean, and modern with all of the amenities you could want and true ski-in/out access to Kicking Horse Mountain. The boot and glove warmers in the garage were an extra treat! John was incredibly helpful, quick to answer emails and available by phone for all of our questions leading up to and during the weekend, and made sure our check-in process was smooth. He even sent us snow reports!
Thanks for the fantastic stay!
Beautiful place, very roomy. Well-designed with separate rooms for ski equipment and wet bathing suits post hot-tub, ensuring the place stayed clean and dry for the duration of our stay. Would love to stay here again!
Our family have been going to Kicking Horse for years but this was the first time we stayed at Pioneer Lodge. There was more than enough room for our large group of 11. At no time did we feel cramped or crowded. The ease of access to the ski slopes, ski storage/boot drying area in the garage and ability to walk about the village meant we rarely used the cars while we were at Kicking Horse. Pioneer Lodge had all the amenities of home, a BBQ on the veranda, and a well equipped kitchen that even included a spice rack! We all enjoyed the hot tub at the end of our day on the mountain. Pioneer Lodge felt like our home away from home! We will definitely be back next year!
What a fantastic chalet to get away from it all! We had two very little ones and they loved staying here with lots of space to run around. We loved how there were so many living areas that you could find space to yourself even with a lot of people. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, baking dishes, etc. so it was easy to cater in.
