The house is located in Kicking Horse Resort above the town of Golden, British Columbia. Golden is on the main Trans Canada Highway - the primary east west route - about two and a half hours drive from Calgary. Vancouver is seven to eight hours drive further west. Golden is on the Columbia river at the confluence with the Kicking Horse river. The valley runs north south and is part of the Rocky Mountain trench. The location is ideal for easy access to other resort areas; Banff, Lake Louise, Canmore, Radium Hot Springs, and Invermere, all with one and a half to two hours drive time.
The house itself is located on Golden Avenue, a cul de sac of just 15 houses, approximately 300m from the base of the gondola, the main lift access from the centre of the resort to the top of the local mountain and the Eagle's Eye restaurant. Golden Avenue is the third turning on the right after passing the gondola.

Other Activities: Wolf sanctuary. Grizzly Bear refuge. Day trips to Banff, Lake Louise
Golf: www.golfgolden.com. Excellent golf course in Golden, close to the Columbia River.
Golden's 11th hole rated best par 4 in BC.
Other great courses nearby at Invermere and Canmore
Ski: Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has the second highest vertical in Canada (after Whistler), but because it is inland has better snow - champagne powder.
The resort is better suited to the competent skier/boarder as many of the runs are challenging, but there are good beginner areas and a very capable snow school.
There are cross country and snow shoeing trails. Dawn Mountain Nordic Club
The Eagle's Eye restaurant at the top of the gondola has won the award for the best mountain restaurant in North America for three years in succession - great food, but not expensive.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Retired airline pilot, formerly with British Airways. Living in Sussex, England. Married with wife and three children. Two children living in the uk, one in Sydney Australia. Misspent youth as a ski instructor in Mayrhofen, Austrian Tirol
Why the Owner Chose Golden, BC, Canada:
I wanted to be involved in the design, so bought the land and then engaged an architect. It is often described as one of the best houses in Kicking Horse - judge for yourself. Open plan living with fabulous uninterrupted views
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Sit at the valley end of the great room and watch the sunrise. Ski back to the front door after a day on the slopes.
