Golden _ the kingpin of the Canadian mountains

Let the Kicking Horse River and its rapids jolt you back to life. Or, feel the feral breezes of the soaring glaciers. Or, don the skis for carving sessions down the pistes of Banff. That's all possible in Golden, which nestles in a fold of the BC Rockies, between a whole sextuplet of wonderful national parks. The highland charms infuse Golden vacation rentals, too. You could bed down in timber-clad cabins surrounded by lanky pine trees. You could bag ski lodges with snowshoe routes from the doorstep. You could get cozy lodges with views of the rising glacial ranges.

Things to do

Going outdoors in Golden

Swinging gondolas and 106 powder-doused ski runs await just to the east of Golden. Enter the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, where carvers and boarders while away whole vacations during the winter months. It's not just about the mountain pistes there though, because that adventure playground also has panoramic lookouts from the top of its chairlifts, and a sanctuary for the endangered grizzly bear. For glimpses of the more untamed wilds of Canada, the Yoho National Park and the Glacier National Park are just a little further afield.

Activities

Cranking up the adventure in Golden

Vacations in Golden will often take a turn for the intrepid. Just check the roaring whitewater rivers that crash through the forests just a stone's throw from the door of many Golden vacation rentals. Take the snow-doused ski fields, where riders carve the pistes in winter, view seekers dangle on the chairlifts during the summer, and grizzly bear sanctuaries herald a safari with a difference. Hang-gliding down from the Rockies is another pastime, unless you prefer the dramatic hikes that take you to the lookouts in the first place.

Weather

Golden _ snow to sunshine

Golden's little cleft between the Purcell Mountains and the Rockies gives it a real highland climate. Come winter, the clouds drop huge amounts of snow onto the surrounding slopes, which means the months between December and March are the best time to go in search of ski lodges close to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. The spring starts the hiking season proper. That brings loads of people with boots in tow to Golden vacation rentals between May and September, all eager to hit the trails of the nearby national parks.

Natural features

Great peaks abound in Golden

Few cities in the world could claim the same proximity to national reserves as Golden. No fewer than 6 individual parks lie within striking distance. The most famous include Banff and Jasper, which are quintessential swaths of Rocky Mountain wilderness _ think grizzly bears, elk and dense forests of spruce and fir. Others come in the form of the Glacier National Park, where blooming wildflower meadows give way to creaking ice fields. Then there's Kootenay National Park, complete with mirror-like mountain lakes and rugged canyons.
