Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We lived in the KHMR/Goden area for 15 years and built our house at the resort 6 years ago. We are avid outdoors people that enjoy skiing/ snowboarding at the Kicking Horse Resort, ski touring and ice climbing in the local area. In the summer it's mountain biking, hiking, and cycling and swimming at Cedar Lake. The area offers amazing rivers for rafting and kayaking and winter or summer, it is rarely crowded (especially mid-week).

Why the Owner Chose Kicking Horse Mountain Resort:
We used to own a helicopter access ski-touring lodge and loved waking up in the mountains every morning and skiing from our front door. With a ski resort home, we still wake up and ski out from the front door. It's tough to beat morning coffee watching the sun peak over the mountains, or evening sunsets with your favourite beverage in the hot tub.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have one of the best views from our hot tub in the entire Resort! It is on the main level deck with amazing views of both the Rocky and Selkirk Mountain Ranges. Extremely flexible bedding configuration to accommodate individuals, couples and mixed groups, especially families. We have everything you need to make the trip easier when traveling with young kids! We have a crib, extra pack and play, booster seat, plastic cups, kids books, toys (LEGO, Duplo, Thomas the Train sets, toy cook set, cars, books, etc.). Apple TV and PVR in the basement media/play area.
