2600 square foot 'True' ski-in/ski-out Luxury ski home - We've rented places that called themselves ski-in/ski-out and find ourselves disappointed when the owners took liberty with the term. This home is a 'TRUE' ski-in/ski-out home. You can ski down 'Bail Out' trail, ski on the access trail labeled Purcell Woods and ski the back door of the home. And when you want to get back on the slopes, put the skis back on and ski out the neighborhood down to the gondola on a trail next to the road. You NEVER have to take a step except to cross the back door threshold going into the home. You don't have to ski the trees, you don't have to sit down or side step and you don't have to be an expert skier.

Heated floors, tile floors, wood floors, granite countertops, big screen TV with whole house speaker system, XBOX 1 system, washer and dryer, ski to gondola, ski right to the back door, 5 minute walk (or ski) to 5 restaurants, 3 bars, gondola, day lodge, rental shop, lift ticket office, general store, mountain bike trails and horseback riding outfit. Just a short gondola ride to world class Eagles Eye Restaurant. Short chairlift ride to Grizzly Bear refuge. 20 km of groomed Dawn Mountain cross country ski trails are 100 yards from home. The Purcell Woods Ski-in trail goes right behind the home. The home has incredible views of the Columbia and Kicking Horse rivers and the Purcell and Dogtooth mountain ranges through the floor to ceiling windows in the living room.

Kicking Horse Mountain : We love to ski and we love this mountain. The only mountain with better terrain (in our opinion) is Jackson Hole. The only mountain with better snow is Alta. The only place with a better view is Lake Louise. This mountain is the total package. It's huge and always has soft powder somewhere (even in spring). It has bumps, chutes, bowls, trees, glades, cornices, cliffs, terrain parks, back country and even bunny slopes, magic carpets, long meandering blues ('It's a 10' - 10 km long). We take several ski trips a year all over the US and Canada and chose Kicking Horse because it is the total package. Come try it (again) and we think you'll agree.

Golden Golf and Country Club: The Golden Golf Club is just 7 km away from the home on the main road to the house. It offers one of the most enjoyable golfing experiences you will find in Canada. The natural beauty of the Columbia Valley, makes the golf course an instant classic. Architects Bill Newis and Les Furber have done some of their best work in sculpting this fun, but challenging layout. The stunning Rocky, and Purcell mountains are uniquely framed, and each hole tells a great story.

Amazing luxury ski Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this high end chalet was outstanding. It is well organized and comfortable.

The kitchen had every utensils you would ever need. The chalet is situated on a beautiful quiet street. A hot tub is located on the back deck overlooking a peaceful forest. There are even heated floors. This is a true ski in ski out. We had the best ski holiday at Kicking Horse and will be coming back for another visit.

Great Accommodation at a Great Resort

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this resort March 7-11, 2018. The accommodation was excellent and matched what the description on VRBO. My group particularly enjoyed the sound system that is house-wide, and the hot tub on the back deck just off the kitchen. The chalet slept all 10 of us very comfortably. The service was also excellent, as there were a couple cases where we ran out of supplies (toilet paper, etc.) and the housekeeper came by within an hour of us emailing.

It is true ski-in/ski-out, but you do need to ski/board down a quiet road (if there's still snow on the road) and take your gear off to cross a more major road on the way to the lifts.

Overall I would highly recommend this chalet to anyone.

Couldn't have asked for a better home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We, 3 couples stayed at the beautiful trail back lodge for 3 nights while attending a family wedding.

The home was very spacious and very well equipped with everything needed to prepare meals and beverages!

Decor and furnishings were top notch adding to the stunning views surrounding us.

Hot tub was a popular spot in the cool evenings for good times and conversation.

I strongly recommend staying in this house if you are planning on staying at kicking horse. As does the rest of the party that accompanied me.

Thank you for a dream getaway!!!

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
Car: recommended

Kicking Horse Resort - 10 minutes from Golden, British Columbia - 3 hours from Calgary, Alberta Airport. Ski-in/Ski-out home. Downhill skiing at your front door. Cross Country ski trails are only 100 ft away. Moutain bike right from home to mountain trails. 5 minute walk to base area, bars, restaurants, shops, horseback riding. Take a Gondola to the world famous Eagle's Eye Restaurant. Take a chairlift to see 'Boo' the grizzly in the Grizzly habitat area located on the mountain. Golf, hang glide, paraglide, raft, fish, hike, climb, canoe, kayak all within 30 minutes of the home. Lake Louis is 1 hour away, Banf is 1.5 hours, Lake Invermere is 1.5 hours, Revelstoke is 2 hours away. Easy drive to Lake Louis Ski Resort, Norquay Ski Resort, Sunshine Ski Resort and Revelstoke Resort. Take a 'wolf walk', hiking with wolves in their natural environment at the Northern Lights Wolf Center.

Other Activities: Boating, snowboarding, wildlife viewing, basketball, parasailing, snowmobiling, rock climbing, kayaking, health/beauty spa

Golf: The Golden Golf Club is just 7 km away from the home on the main road to the house. It offers one of the most enjoyable golfing experiences you will find in Canada. The natural beauty of the Columbia Valley, makes the golf course an instant classic. Architects Bill Newis and Les Furber have done some of their best work in sculpting this fun, but challenging layout. The stunning Rocky, and Purcell mountains are uniquely framed, and each hole tells a great story.

Ski: Kicking Horse Mountain - We love to ski and we love this mountain. The only mountain with better terrain (in our opinion) is Jackson Hole. The only mountain with better snow is Alta. The only place with a better view is Lake Louise. This mountain is the total package. It's huge and always has soft powder somewhere (even in spring). It has bumps, chutes, bowls, trees, glades, cornices, cliffs, terrain parks, back country and even bunny slopes, magic carpets, long meandering blues ('It's a 10' - 10 km long). We take several ski trips a year all over the US and Canada and chose Kicking Horse because it is the total package. Come try it (again) and we think you'll agree.
