About Gabriel Higham
Glenn and Tim’s adventure on Race Place is a long story but it will suffice to say that at the end of a very long ski day on Christmas Eve, 2005 Glenn was trying to keep up with our daughter’s new boyfriend when he had a wipe out on Race Place. It was knee deep powder conditions, both of Glenn’s skis came off, he slid for several hundred meters, and ended up having to walk most of the way down Race Place with no skis. It took several hours but Tim stuck it out with Glenn and we always refer to it as Tim and Glenn’s first bonding experience. Tim married our daughter the following year. Tim and Glenn are ski buddies to this day and great friends. We never did find the lost skis but we all look for them every time we ski Race Place. To keep the memory alive (although some of us would rather forget it) we decided to name our home Race Place Lodge. We hope you will have an adventure at Race Place Lodge that you will be able to look back on with fond memories just as we do.

Great property! Great location!
Amazing property and a great, quiet location! Thank you!
Thank you for the great review Jamie and highlighting the quiet location.
Nice, clean, and large kicking horse lodge
The lodge was very clean and tidy upon our arrival. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the size of the lodge plus the layout. The property manage was very responsive and easy to talk to.
Thanks for the great review Michael. Glad everything met expectations. Hope you come back again soon.
Beautiful property in a nice quiet location. Clean but there seems to be a lot of spider webs on the ceilings. Needs more new dish cloths. Also one of the bedrooms downstairs does not have windows and we are wondering if that is legal.
Thanks for the review Susan. There is actually a drawer in the kitchen full of dish clothes and tea towels. I think it just didn't get noticed during your stay. So glad you enjoyed the home.
The condos were spacious and elegant. The location was excellent—between two beautiful national parks.
Thank you for the review Greta. So glad you enjoyed the Canadian National parks.
Beautiful house in a perfect location
Gabriel was extremely responsive in all communications regarding our rental. Beautiful house in a perfect location. We will be back.
Thanks for the great review James. Hope you come back next year and get that Cat Skiing in.
Great ski in and out for a big group
House was a great space for a big group - kitchen and main living area perfect setup for apres, dinner and socializing.
Very clean, beds were comfortable. True ski in/ out location and the space was sunny and west facing with lots of light. Hot tub was great as well.
Just a few items that need improvement to make this a five star:
- there needs to be a better gear area, no garage and only a small space by the front door to dry boots and store skis. Had to use our cars or keep stuff outside (which was ok as it was above zero)
- main floor toilet did not always flush and presence of plunger right beside it makes me think it's not a new problem
- bathtub in basement drain plug leaks, which made bathtime with the kids a challenge
I'm sorry the home didn't meet your full expectations.
Unfortunately not much we can do about gear storage - the area by the second front door is the best option with a closet and lots of open space.
We'll get the mainfloor toilet looked at - it is not a problem we have had before - we leave plungers by all the toilets at the home.
We'll also get a new drain plug. Hope to have you back again. We'll have everything except a gear room rectified.

Golf: 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.
Ski: 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). Come try it (again) and we think you'll agree.
