Kicking Horse Mountain Resort located outside Golden, B.C., is in the Canadian Rockies at the juncture of the Continent's three most majestic ranges: the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains and Rocky Mountains, and the confluence of the Kicking Horse, and Columbia Rivers.

The Resort overlooks five spectacular National Parks: Banff, Glacier, Kootenay, Yoho and Mount Revelstoke. It is a place of rare natural beauty and an unbelievable array of activities for all seasons!

This award-winning design, well-appointed and welcoming slope-side condo is beautifully furnished in hard wood and nature themes throughout the master bedroom (queen bed), second bedroom with TV, full kitchen, sit-up bar, and comfortable living room with a 32' flat screen TV and pull-out couch. To ensure the comforts of home, and a little extra pampering there is Wi-fi, internet, underground parking, heated tile floors and your own private luxurious outdoor hot tub with fabulous mountain views!

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is known for it's Champagne powder, and has everything from steep chutes for the powder hounds, to green runs for the kids, as well as snow-tubing runs, a skating rink, and both cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails. The gourmet Eagle's Eye Restaurant at the top of the gondola (elev. 7700 ft) offers heavenly meals and views, while other great restaurants and pubs, grocery/liquor sales, equipment rental and purchase, and lessons are available at the base area.

In winter there is easy access to back-country ski touring, heli-skiing, cat-skiing, snowmobiling, dog-sledding, tobogganing, ice-climbing and ice-fishing in the area.

Kicking Horse is a truly great place to visit in the summertime too - as the gondola and chair lift are open for sight-seeing, hiking or downhill mountain biking access, and the scenery is simply fantastic! For even more excitement plan a visit to see 'Boo' - the resident adult male grizzly bear who was orphaned as a cub and now lives in a 22 acre enclosure in the middle of the mountain where naturalists give talks about bears and their habitat throughout each day.

Other activities to do nearby in the summer include: whitewater rafting, hang-gliding and paragliding (for which Golden is famous), Canoe/kayaking, fly-fishing, ATV tours, Jet boat tours, horseback riding, cross-country and downhill mountain biking, Wolf Interpretative center, swimming in nearby Cedar Lake or in town at the outdoor pool.

In the town of Golden, 15 minutes drive from the Resort, the vibrant local culture is featured in the many local festivals, as well as tennis courts, skateboard park, groceries, spa services, shopping, excellent restaurants, and walking trails along the river, complete with local art.

On the way down to Golden, (only a 10 minute drive away), is the Golden Golf Course boasting an 18 hole championship course, that is consistently rated 4/5 by Golf Digest Magazine, with Hole # 11 ranked as 'the Best Par 4 in BC' by Score Golf TV and magazine, and boasting unparalleled mountain views from each hole!

And don't forget to bring your camera for possible wildlife encounters - as on a recent drive from Calgary to Kicking Horse: deer, bighorn sheep, a moose, two young grizzlies, and two black bears were all spotted in one evening!

About the owner: Owner lives in Calgary and is an avid skier and hiker, loves to enjoy the area with friends and family. Kids love it here!

Why the Owner Chose Columbia-Shuswap A, BC, Canada:
Owner has skied most resorts in Western Canada, and this is by far the best place to be! This ski hill is unbelievable in terms of snow quality and amount, variety of terrain, and opportunities for resort-based powder skiing. The scenery is amazing and it is wonderful to be able to walk out your door to ski, and relax in the hot tub at the end of the day! This condo is really comfy, with a large selection of DVD's, Wi-fi, great decor, and very private hottub. There's great restaurants, pubs, and other fun things to do in the area, and summer here is great too! It's our happy-place!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Very comfortable, nicely designed and decorated unit. Great views from front and back decks. Quiet and super-relaxing in hottub at night!
