2600 square foot 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 down to the front 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 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. Only if there is a lack of snow then sometimes you may have to walk across the road to the house. But it is a short distance of less than 75 feet.

Heated floors, tile floors, wood floors, granite countertops, big screen TV, 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 Property, Improvemnt Needed on the Details

  • 4 of 5

The house is amazing, beautiful structure with a beautiful view. Gabriel was amazing to deal with in the lead up to our stay. Our only disappointment as a group were a couple of details that are easily corrected. The kitchen was missing the basics (no salt, no oil), when we have stayed at other luxury (and this house is luxury) VRBO homes the cooking basics have been in the cupboards and fridge. The other issue we had during our stay is the BBQ ran out of propane on the 2nd night of our stay and a replacement tank was not on site. We were fortunate that the tank ran out just as our food was done. We replaced the tank at our cost (had to go to town to do it) and were not reimbursed despite leaving a receipt on the counter and contacting Gabriel via e-mail when the issue occurred.

Owner's Response: Hi Terrence, I am sorry about the propane tank. I did not receive the e-mail about it for some reason or we would have pointed you to the spare tank. I did refund the cost of the tank back to you as soon as I got the review. We leave the homes stocked with whatever (non perishables) is left behind but too often renters simply remove everything when they leave so we don't continually stock salt, oil, condiments etc. I'm sorry this didn't meet your expectations. Note that this review is actually for VRBO 320017, not this home. This home is hooked up to the house propane so you don't have to deal with propane tanks.

Beautiful Place for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent wonderful days in the Golden and Kicking Horse BC area with our adult children. The chalet is exactly as described on the website. It is clean and wonderfully outfitted with everything needed to feel comfortable away from home. The chalet is spacious and will easily sleep 10 people. The kitchen is nicely equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, and some basic supplies (coffee, sugar, salt, pepper). We even noticed equipment for children (high chair, baby gate, playpen).

Upon arrival, the beds were set up with comfortable sheets and comforters. We were happy to find some condiments in the fridge that helped to get us started with meal preparation. The hot tub was a wonderful way to warm up after our white water rafting excursion. The location is perfect for all activities in Kicking Horse. It is within walking distance to the gondola and several restaurants. Gabriel was very efficient in assisting us with booking and payment.

This was our first trip to Golden, BC. There is so much to do and experience. We will definitely return again, with plans to stay at this property!

Beautiful mountain retreat, perfect for our family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for our family to call home for our five day family reunion in Kicking Horse. The house is lovely--beautifully furnished and maintained, and the location is ideal. We kept busy with white water rafting, wild mountain biking adventures and scenic hikes for the entire family. After a busy day of extreme sports and all that Kicking Horse has to offer, we thoroughly enjoyed soaking in the spacious hot tub. This is a marvelous mountain retreat that we definitely plan on returning to.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We concluded a 10 day vacation hiking in the Canadian Rockies by spending 3 nights at the Chalet and it was absolutely wonderful. There were three couples, and each had our own bedroom and bathroom to use (even though only the master bathroom is en suite, one couple stayed downstairs right next to a bathroom and the other stayed in a room next to the upstairs bathroom, so we had enough privacy that it wasn't much different than having them all be en suite). The media room had a big screen tv to watch sports on, the kitchen was well furnished and large enough for us all to have contributing to making meals, and the hot tub was a great source of relaxation after lots of miles of hiking. We also appreciated the high-end Weber gas grill for the night that we cooked at home. The other two nights we took an easy walk to the saloon and a restaurant in Kicking Horse for dinner and it was nice that no one had to worry about being a designated driver since it was just a 5 minute walk back. Everything about the reservation and payments was also flawless. I give it my strongest recommendation -- you will feel at home here (ok, maybe even a bit nicer than at home).

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review, Kathryn. We just replaced the grill - so glad you got good use out of if. And the recommendations about walking to everything are invaluable for future guests. Sometimes you put things in the description of the home but people tend to value it more when guests mention it. Would love to have you back. Thanks again.

Beautiful Mountain Chalet at the Heart of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely Beautiful Home at the Kicking Horse Resort, within a 10 minute walk to the Gondola, chairlifts, restaurants and shops. We came to Golden for a family wedding in June, this home easily accommodates 10 though we were a party of 6 adults and 1 teen. Everything required for a comfortable stay is provided, we especially enjoyed the hottub and wood burning fireplace. (Plenty of wood is provided!)

We loved our stay and would definitely choose this property again. Kicking Horse is truly a four season resort. Having stayed at many VRBO properties, we appreciated the ease of booking, arriving and checking out.

We hope to return and enjoy the skiing this coming Winter.
