About Gabriel Higham

My husband and I fell madly in love with Kicking Horse on our first visit in 2002. At that time all that was available was the gondola and the Eagles Eye restaurant. Before we left Golden, BC we had purchased a lot and were one of the first families to build a home on the mountain. Kicking Horse is still relatively unknown and there are many days when my husband is the only other person I can see on the ski trail. With a 15 min gondola ride to the top of the mountain there are plenty of chutes, trees and open fields to keep you entertained. At the end of your ski day you can ski right up to the garage door and kick off your skis/snowboards. In the summer we find taking the gondola up to the top and hiking the ridges to be one of our favorite adventures along with a stop at the Eagles Eye for a gourmet lunch. We hope you enjoy our home and the mountain as much as we do!

Gabriel Higham purchased this house in 2004

Kicking Horse property review

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and comfortable home with everything we needed. It was set up to make us feel very welcome and it was extremely funcional for our family. The booking experience and quick responses by the manager were top notch. We felt very comfortable in this home, the hot tub was perfect and regularly checked by a professional and courteous staff member. I would highly recommend this property.

Stunning, cosy, comfy and a lovely place to be after a hard day of skiing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the chalet - very open, spacious and bright. Well stocked and cared for. We had 2 families sharing the space - 7 of us in all and everyone loved the place! Gabriel was very helpful on all accounts. You cannot go wrong renting this gorgeous chalet!

Contemporary home with a log cabin feel

  • 5 of 5

This chalet has an unusual design with a massive open concept kitchen right surrounded by four massive wood posts, situated in between two living rooms, each with two-story windows. The beds were very comfortable, and the ski in / ski out access was about as good as you can get for a single family stand alone home at Kicking Horse. The house was well-kept in good condition; we'd be happy to stay there again.

Great stay in this fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families staying in this property for a weekend. The home itself is very spacious with a lot of windows to let in natural light. The kitchen was fabulous and well appointed. All bedrooms were very comfortable and clean. The big screen TV and hot tub were important to us and didn't disappoint. All in all, I would highly recommend renting this home, as we will definitely do so again. Lastly, the owner Gabriel has fantastic communication and our damage deposit was returned to us within 48 hours.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Great location and beautiful house. The house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and the gas grill worked too. The light bulbs on the stove hood were burned out and the coffee pot was rather old and slow but everything else was good.
