2600 square foot 'True' ski-in/ski-out Luxury ski home - We've rented places that called themselves ski-in/ski-out and find ourselves disappointed when the owners took liberty with the term. This home is a 'TRUE' ski-in/ski-out home. You can ski down 'Bail Out' trail, ski on the access trail labeled Purcell Woods and ski the back door of the home. And when you want to get back on the slopes, put the skis back on and ski out the neighborhood down to the gondola on a trail next to the road. You NEVER have to take a step except to cross the back door threshold going into the home. You don't have to ski the trees, you don't have to sit down or side step and you don't have to be an expert skier.
Heated floors, tile floors, wood floors, granite countertops, big screen TV with whole house speaker system, XBOX 1 system, washer and dryer, ski to gondola, ski right to the back door, 5 minute walk (or ski) to 5 restaurants, 3 bars, gondola, day lodge, rental shop, lift ticket office, general store, mountain bike trails and horseback riding outfit. Just a short gondola ride to world class Eagles Eye Restaurant. Short chairlift ride to Grizzly Bear refuge. 20 km of groomed Dawn Mountain cross country ski trails are 100 yards from home. The Purcell Woods Ski-in trail goes right behind the home. The home has incredible views of the Columbia and Kicking Horse rivers and the Purcell and Dogtooth mountain ranges through the floor to ceiling windows in the living room.
Kicking Horse Mountain : We love to ski and we love this mountain. The only mountain with better terrain (in our opinion) is Jackson Hole. The only mountain with better snow is Alta. The only place with a better view is Lake Louise. This mountain is the total package. It's huge and always has soft powder somewhere (even in spring). It has bumps, chutes, bowls, trees, glades, cornices, cliffs, terrain parks, back country and even bunny slopes, magic carpets, long meandering blues ('It's a 10' - 10 km long). We take several ski trips a year all over the US and Canada and chose Kicking Horse because it is the total package. Come try it (again) and we think you'll agree.
Golden Golf and Country Club: The Golden Golf Club is just 7 km away from the home on the main road to the house. It offers one of the most enjoyable golfing experiences you will find in Canada. The natural beauty of the Columbia Valley, makes the golf course an instant classic. Architects Bill Newis and Les Furber have done some of their best work in sculpting this fun, but challenging layout. The stunning Rocky, and Purcell mountains are uniquely framed, and each hole tells a great story.

Great Accommodation at a Great Resort
Stayed at this resort March 7-11, 2018. The accommodation was excellent and matched what the description on VRBO. My group particularly enjoyed the sound system that is house-wide, and the hot tub on the back deck just off the kitchen. The chalet slept all 10 of us very comfortably. The service was also excellent, as there were a couple cases where we ran out of supplies (toilet paper, etc.) and the housekeeper came by within an hour of us emailing.
It is true ski-in/ski-out, but you do need to ski/board down a quiet road (if there's still snow on the road) and take your gear off to cross a more major road on the way to the lifts.
Overall I would highly recommend this chalet to anyone.
Solid Place. Awesome to literally ski to the back door.. I recommend you stay here. The management was also very responsive.
Thank you for the great review Jason. Hope to have you back again in the future.
Couldn't have asked for a better home away from home!
We, 3 couples stayed at the beautiful trail back lodge for 3 nights while attending a family wedding.
The home was very spacious and very well equipped with everything needed to prepare meals and beverages!
Decor and furnishings were top notch adding to the stunning views surrounding us.
Hot tub was a popular spot in the cool evenings for good times and conversation.
I strongly recommend staying in this house if you are planning on staying at kicking horse. As does the rest of the party that accompanied me.
Thank you for a dream getaway!!!
Thank you so much for the detailed and informative review. And appreciate all the feedback you gave us. It really helps us ensure every guest continues to have the top notch experience you did. Hope you come back for some skiing sometime soon.
Beautiful home with all the amenities. Lots of activities to enjoy. Thank you for sharing.
Awesome. Great location with all the essentials.
Thanks so much Carla. Would love to have you back for the ski season.
Beautiful location. Well kept home
Couldn't ask for a better experience
Beautiful Mountain Getaway
This was a wonderful place to stay at the top of Kicking Horse, very well maintained with a wonderful open concept that was a delight to come back to after adventuring around Golden and the parks around it. It has all the amenities you could want, including a nice big hot tub overlooking the saskatoon-berry laden backyard (we were there just as they were ripe and managed to grab some before the wildlife got to the rest). The XBox One was a nice touch and provided entertainment for the kids while we enjoyed the hot tub. The small stream running behind the house put us to sleep most nights, and it was great being able to walk down to the resort and have a great cup of coffee and amazing Eggs Benedict at the Double Black cafe in the mornings. We always looked forward to coming "home" after a long day.
I should also say that after a small incident with some smoldering mulch one morning to the side of the house, response and aid from neighbouring residents and property caretakers was fast and efficient, and the neighbours were all extremely nice people that would make anyone feel at home. Property instructions were all very clear and well-defined as well, which is always appreciated.
We couldn't recommend this home enough, and hope we can come back for ski season soon. Being able to ski down to the lifts from your front door sounds fantastic!
Wow Ian. Incredible review. Makes me come want to stay at the place :)
Thank you so much for all your help with the mulch fire. It appears that someone walking back from the stream decided to use the path by the house and was careless and threw a cigarette butt into the mulch. Thanks to your quick response it didn't cause anymore damage. It is very sad that people can be so careless especially when the fire danger is so high right now.
Would love to have you back in the winter.
