Six Reasons to rent our home:

Longer stays get a bigger discount. Get $100 off for each additional night you stay.

"True" ski-in/ski-out home - We've rented places the 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, look to the left and see the back of the home. Turn you skis off the trail, ski down 40 feet and you are at the back door. 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. Our home is the closest house on the mountain to a ski trail. Every other home at Kicking Horse is further away.  Check-out the video showing the ski-in/ski-out access from a skier POV.

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.

Hot tub - the hot tub is a must after a long (or short) day of skiing. The hot tub easily holds 8 people, is quiet and secluded tucked at the back corner of the house just 10 feet from the back door. No sharing the hot tub with a whole lodge full of guests. No neighbors next door looking right at the hot tub when you're using it. Turn on some music, have a glass of wine and submerse yourself in the warm water while breathing the cool mountain air (maybe snow is falling). The hot tub is checked and maintained every week so you don't have to worry about chemicals, if it's hot enough or if it's even working. It's ready, just add you.

Beds, Beds, Beds - We have lots of beds. Not pullout couches or air matresses but actual beds. And what beds they are. Three beautiful, huge King beds (poster and sleigh), a double trundle that can convert to a King, a double and if you still don't have enough, a futon that folds down to a twin. You'll have a great night's sleep and awake refreshed for a day on the mountain.

The View - The front dining area, balcony and Master bedroom window seat all have panoramic views of the Columbia river valley and the Canadian Rockies. Watch the sun rise up through the huge front windows while having your morning coffee. The home sits at the top of a circular road, at the highest point in the neighborhood so you command the best view.

In case you needed some other reasons:
- Heated wood and tile floors. Wake up, step off the edge of the bed to a warm, comfortable floor. No more freezing your feet running to the bathroom in the morning. No more putting on socks or shoes to go get breakfast.
- High Speed Internet, whole home wirelss and a computer and printer for your use. Surf the internet to see how much powder is going to dump tonight, check in for your flights and print your boarding pass, check out what band is playing at the local bar or shop for new skis...all from any room in the house, or on the computer that's included in the office.
- Entertainment. Air hockey, table tennis and pool table await you down in the den. Start a nice wood fire in the stove and everyone hang out and play games. We have lots of board games, cards and puzzles for your use. We also have a collection of movies and three TV's throughout the house all with sattelite TV service. Maybe go sledding with the whole family. You won't be bored.

Location & Map

Location

Kicking Horse Mountain - We love to ski and we love this mountain.  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, Canada and the World and chose Kicking Horse because it is the total package. Come try it (again) and we think you'll agree. 

And in the summer the resort turns into a hiker and biker playground with an incredible number and variety of mountain bike and hiking trails.  Take a ride to the top and have a 5 star lunch or dinner at the Eagles Eye restaurant with an incredible 360 degree view for miles of the incredible Canadian Rockies.  Or go golfing at one of the most beautiful courses in Canada at the Golden Golf Club just 5 minutes from the home. And perhaps the coolest attraction is the Grizzly habitat.  Take the chairlift and meet "Boo", Kicking Horse Resort's famous resident grizzly.  Get within a few feet of him, taking wonderful pictures and learning about this magnificent natural wonder from the preserve's funny and knowledgeble staff.

Columbia Rivery Valley - An incredible outdoor activity wonderland. Golden is just 10 minutes down the road that leads up to the mountain.  At the junction of the Kicking Horse and Columbia rivers, this is a water lover's paradise with jet boats, rafting, canoing, fishing or just walking along the river's edge in peace and solitude. Golden is the para- and hang gliding capitol of Canada.  People have launched off of Mount Seven and flown all the way to the US on the valley's thermals.  Golden has great shopping and restaurants all while maintaining a small town charm and friendliness.

Local Tips

About Us

A warm welcome to the Grizzly Chalet from us to you. A warm welcome to the Grizzly Chalet from us to you.

We are two avid skiers who bought our house for ski trips with family and friends and eventual retirement. To help pay the bills we rent it out when we aren't using it. We first skied at Kicking Horse in 2004 as part of our yearly ski trip with friends - that year trying out the eastern side of the Canadian Rockies. We had skied Whistler a couple of times and knew we loved Canadians. They are so nice, cheerful and friendly people. Our day at Kicking Horse was the favorite of everyone on the trip. We couldn't believe how great the snow was, how big the mountain was and how few people there were. My wife and I actually got engaged at the top of Lake Louise. She asked me to marry her and I said yes and she presented me with candy lollipop rings (we later upgraded them). Anyway, we looked at buying at the time but weren't in a financial position to do so. But in 2009 we were in a much better position and so we decided to come back to double check if everything we remembered about it was true. It was and we happened to stumble upon a great deal on this home and jumped at the opportunity. With any life changing event there is always a little voice that wonders if you are doing the right thing. That voice went away and never came back after we had to stop for a black wolf in the middle of the road between Banff and Golden. We knew this was the place for us. We hope that you will consider experiencing our wonderful home and get as much enjoyment out of it as we do.

Vacation Rental Reviews by Flipkey

wondeful ski in/out house


Cdnskier from Toronto, Canada
Date: Mar-31-2013

This place is big, comfortable, with all amenities neccesary for a wonderful ski holiday. Make sure you bring all of the neccesities i.e. food and beverages up with you from Golden. My local convenience store in Toronto has more selection than the on hill General Store. Minor complaint . This place has all required for a large group. Highly recommended

Perfect Mountain Chalet


Cheryl H from Calgary, Canada
Date: Dec-19-2012

We were invited to a wedding in K-Ho and ended up enjoying so much more. Grizzly Chalet felt like home, every detail attended to. Comfortable beds, warm...heated floors everywhere. Beautiful granite counters, top of the line kitchen utensils. Although the snow fall was desired it was a bonus to park in the garage. Plenty of parking on the driveway as well. The snow boarders in our group boarded right up to the chalet at the end of the day. The amenities were exactly as listed and the owners are quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Everything worked perfectly, Satellite TV, Internet/Wifi, computer and printer, hot tub etc. The damage deposit was promptly returned in full the day after we left. From start to finish a wonderfull experience and the owners a pleasure to deal with.

Beautiful and clean home nestled in the most picturesque neighbo

My friends and I do an annual trip out to Kicking Horse to get some mountain biking and white water rafting done. Usually we rent condos right on the resort at Kicking Horse. However, this year we tried renting this house and I will never go back to renting condos ever again. This house was amazing! Something straight out of the movies. All the furniture and bedding were new and super comfortable. All the technology in the house was a huge bonus, which included wifi internet for smartphones and laptops, Ipod dock, LCD Tv's, very nice speaker system, heated floors, and aC! Not to mention the games room with ping pong, billiards, and air hockey! The cleanliness was a 10/10. As a huge germaphobe I went to every room and checked all the sheets and bedding and they were to the point I thought everything was brand new. The bathrooms were immaculate and handsoap, towels, and even slippers to wear inside the house and hot tub were provided! The owner of the house was very accomodating for our group and replied emails very quickly. I questioned his damage deposit of $1000 cash (sent via email money transfer) but completely understood why he asked for this as the house is immaculate and has thousands of dollars worth of technology and amenities that most rental units do not have (personally I would ask for more than just a $1000 deposit!!). After the house inspection was completed by his staff I was promptly returned my $1000 deposit (via email money transfer) the very next day after I got home from the trip with a confirmation email from the owner. He provided emergency local contact information for every situation that could possibly go wrong and even included his personal cell. All in all I will definately be returning to this house and have absolutely nothing negative to say about my stay here. My entire group has now asked me to book this house every year! Thank you!

Great times at the Grizzly Chalet & Kicking Horse


JonnyK from Texas

Grizzly Chalet is a beautiful ski-in/ski-out home located at the base of Kicking Horse. It accommodated our party of 10. Check-in is easy and convenient. The kitchen opens up to a nice view of the mountains (opposite of Kicking Horse) and a large nook that can seat 8 comfortably. Lots of appliances and cooking utensils for home cooking. Clean bed sheets and couches with spare sheets available. Plenty of towels for each bathroom and hot tub, as well as flip flops to get to the hot tub. Hot tub is very close to the house which makes easy access. Bathroom near the hot tub/back door. Hot water was fast and didn't encounter any issues. Floor heating and Hvac made for comfortable temperatures. Location is great with true ski-in/ski-out. Ski-out requires snowboarders to walk across intersection, but that's it. Ski-in may take you down a few houses if you exit from green trail. A more secluded cut from the trail takes you straight to the backyard. Security key locks worked for the most part (did act strange a couple of times). Light panels have labels for ease of use. Garage has pegs for ski and snowboard equipment as well as shovels in case a lot of powder hits Kicking Horse (over 2 feet during my visit). Gas fireplace with vents to warm up the living area which is well lit in the day. Huge LCD TV for movies and Xbox for games. Game room downstairs has small air hockey/billiards table for entertainment. Hot Tub and Game Room could use speakers, but no complaints since I enjoyed the conversations during my stay. Futon is comfortable. Gas grill on the front side patio. Study has a desktop for internet access and printer. Laundry room has supplies and two dryers. The normal horizontal load and a closet style. Both work great to dry up soaked inner wear from a day full of powder runs in the bowls. Couple blocks from pub/restaurant/grocery store. Great, beautiful, cozy place for 10 powder hounds skiing Kicking Horse.

Awesome ski in, ski out lodge

What a treat to put your skis on in the driveway and ski right to the lifts. Then, ski right down to the house at the end of the day. Beautiful and spacious house for a group. Snow was fluffy, plentiful, and made for great scenery from the outdoor hot tub. Special dryer for gloves and other gear was a nice touch. We walked to nearby Corks restaurant for fun apres ski and $10 pizza & beer special. If you have a group in the winter, don't miss the tubing!

Fabulous accomodations

The home was well appointed and spacious and felt very comfortable for all of the people that were staying there. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking in, and the beds were most comfortable. I loved the hot tub right out the door with the flip flops and towels provided as you went out. There was lots of room for two cars in the garage, and for skis, boots, and gear right inside the lower entrance door next to the garage. Very handy! The views were wonderful, and we could ski right down to the lift and get tickets and ski right back to the house at the end of the day. Kicking Horse mountain is wonderful, and we had a wonderful week of snow and skiing. I highly recommend this home for your next visit.

Beautiful Chalet with lots of room to strech out and relax

We spent a weekend skiing at Kicking Horse. The Grizzly Chalet was the perfect accommodations for our group. There were plenty of beds for everyone. The hot tub was great after a fun day on the hill. Being able to ski in and out was very convenient. The location couldn't have been any better. We'll be back for sure.

Leave the vacation planning to the owners of the Grizzly Chalet!

Our week stay at the Grizzly Chalet was one of the most stress free vacations I've had. My husband and I didn't know too much about the area, so we put our trust into the owners of the Chalet, who put together an impressive array of information and recommendations of things to do. Every place we dined and activity we chose to do was excellent! The home they have created is beautiful yet comforting and is stocked over and beyond with living essentials. For example, we've rented a few different vacation homes in the past and most times when we go to make a meal at home, there is always some kitchen gadget or utensil that we need and have to go buy or bring ourselves. At the Grizzly Chalet there is no reason to pack for cooking at home! The city of Golden is delightful and the views from the house and at the top of Kicking Horse are breathtaking. I highly recommend staying at the Grizzly Chalet, Golden BC.
