2600 square foot 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 down to the front 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 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. Only if there is a lack of snow then sometimes you may have to walk across the road to the house. But it is a short distance of less than 75 feet.

Heated floors, tile floors, wood floors, granite countertops, big screen TV, 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 location & nice property!

  • 4 of 5

The owner was a pleasure to book with, and was helpful throughout our stay.

Wonderful location, and welcoming home. Loved the wood burning fireplace. Hot tub was extremely convenient, with a shower immediately inside the back door.

Bedrooms were comfortable.

Would definitely stay here again!

Stunning chalet

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a beautiful chalet that is well kept and very comfortable - this is it. We stayed for 2 nights with 8 adults and 5 babies/kids and it was plenty of room for our large group. The beds were very comfortable and the house was gorgeous. This will ensure an authentic on-mountain chalet experience :)

Amazing Property, Improvemnt Needed on the Details

  • 4 of 5

The house is amazing, beautiful structure with a beautiful view. Gabriel was amazing to deal with in the lead up to our stay. Our only disappointment as a group were a couple of details that are easily corrected. The kitchen was missing the basics (no salt, no oil), when we have stayed at other luxury (and this house is luxury) VRBO homes the cooking basics have been in the cupboards and fridge. The other issue we had during our stay is the BBQ ran out of propane on the 2nd night of our stay and a replacement tank was not on site. We were fortunate that the tank ran out just as our food was done. We replaced the tank at our cost (had to go to town to do it) and were not reimbursed despite leaving a receipt on the counter and contacting Gabriel via e-mail when the issue occurred.

Owner's Response: Hi Terrence, I am sorry about the propane tank. I did not receive the e-mail about it for some reason or we would have pointed you to the spare tank. I did refund the cost of the tank back to you as soon as I got the review. We leave the homes stocked with whatever (non perishables) is left behind but too often renters simply remove everything when they leave so we don't continually stock salt, oil, condiments etc. I'm sorry this didn't meet your expectations. Note that this review is actually for VRBO 320017, not this home. This home is hooked up to the house propane so you don't have to deal with propane tanks.

Beautiful Place for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent wonderful days in the Golden and Kicking Horse BC area with our adult children. The chalet is exactly as described on the website. It is clean and wonderfully outfitted with everything needed to feel comfortable away from home. The chalet is spacious and will easily sleep 10 people. The kitchen is nicely equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, and some basic supplies (coffee, sugar, salt, pepper). We even noticed equipment for children (high chair, baby gate, playpen).

Upon arrival, the beds were set up with comfortable sheets and comforters. We were happy to find some condiments in the fridge that helped to get us started with meal preparation. The hot tub was a wonderful way to warm up after our white water rafting excursion. The location is perfect for all activities in Kicking Horse. It is within walking distance to the gondola and several restaurants. Gabriel was very efficient in assisting us with booking and payment.

This was our first trip to Golden, BC. There is so much to do and experience. We will definitely return again, with plans to stay at this property!
