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.

Amenities

"True" Ski-in/Ski-out - you can ski right to the back of the house off of bailout trail.  You can literally step out of your skis and in through the back door.  When you want to get back on the slopes, ski through the neighborhood and out a community trail right to the gondola or you take bail-out to the nearby Pioneer chairlift.

Large 8 person private hot tub professionally serviced and maintained between every rental awaits for those tired ski legs.  3 large screen TVs with Satellite TV service, DVD players and DVD library.  Gas fireplace and wood stove.  Beautiful views from all over the house looking over the Columbia river valley.  Game room downstairs has ping pong, air hockey and billiards.

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.

About Us

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.
 

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