About Gabriel Higham

We are two avid skiers who bought our house for ski trips with family and friends and eventual retirement. To help pay the bills we rent it out when we aren't using it. We first skied at Kicking Horse in 2004 as part of our yearly ski trip with friends - that year trying out the eastern side of the Canadian Rockies. We had skied Whistler a couple of times and knew we loved Canadians. They are so nice, cheerful and friendly people. Our day at Kicking Horse was the favorite of everyone on the trip. We couldn't believe how great the snow was, how big the mountain was and how few people there were. My wife and I actually got engaged at the top of Lake Louise. She asked me to marry her and I said yes and she presented me with candy lollipop rings (we later upgraded them). Anyway, we looked at buying at the time but weren't in a financial position to do so. But in 2009 we were in a much better position and so we decided to come back to double check if everything we remembered about it was true. It was and we happened to stumble upon a great deal on this home and jumped at the opportunity. With any life changing event there is always a little voice that wonders if you are doing the right thing. That voice went away and never came back after we had to stop for a black wolf in the middle of the road between Banff and Golden. We knew this was the place for us. We decided to name the house after that black wolf we saw. We hope that you will consider experiencing our wonderful home and get as much enjoyment out of it as we do.

Gabriel Higham purchased this house in 2010

Why Gabriel Higham chose British Columbia Rockies

We love to ski and Kicking Horse has some of the best skiing in North America. We absolutely love the snow and varied terrain of Kicking Horse. And the views are to die for.

A perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house in a perfect place of Kicking Horse in Golden. We had plenty of room for our 6 kids (all teens and young adults) and they had lots to do close by. Gabe was a great host and answered all of our questions with long, complete answers about things to do in the area. And as the mom, I was thrilled that there was so little expected of us to leave the property on our last day. I didn't have to start cleaning on my last day of vacation. And I was thrilled to get my deposit returned SO quickly! Thanks again. We hope to see you again soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, It was wonderful to have your family at our home. And so glad you got to experience all that Golden has to offer. That is an awesome point about your vacation not being spent cleaning up on your last day. We will clean up after you. You can just relax and enjoy yourselves. Gabriel Higham

Spring Trip To Golden/National Parks

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from one fantastic family vacation.

The home is magnificent and well positioned for visiting the National Parks.

(Good communication with owners)

Using it as a launching point we:

1. White water rafted on the kicking horse river

2. Visited Wapta falls

3. Hiked Lake Agnes - Big Bee Hive - Plain of 6 Glaciers

4. Stopped at many of the sights on the Iceland parkway up to Jasper

5. Saw a moose - a lot of deer - two black bears - big horn sheep - one grizzly bear (albeit Boo who is on the Kicking Horse preserve) up close

Perfect weather - free entry to all parks given 150 year anniversary...

Great time, great place and thanks again!!!
