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.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Our trip consisted of a bunch of old friends meeting up to enjoy a ski weekend at Kicking Horse. The house was the perfect home-base, giving us quick access to the mountain, the restaurants at the base, town, and the Purcell heli-skiing lodge. Gabe was also very organized and easy to work with for payments and check in.

Clean, open, well-appointed kitchen, and a great location - this house was perfect for our stay. I hope to be back soon!

August Bike & Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights. House is well equip to entertain more guests than it sleeps, though the dinner table would only hold about 10. Lovely wood decorations, guests were happy with the feel of the place and enjoyed their sleeps. Plenty of driveway parking and garage access. I would recommend you consider this home for your future vacations.

Fantastic Rental! Very well equiped. The dryer could use an upgrade, but perfect otherwise.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house in a lovely spot. Very well-equiped kitchen, with lots of room even with two or three cooks! The beds were very comfy and rooms were spacious. The bedrooms could use a little more storage, but otherwise they were great! The house has a very warm feel and is well suited for a large family. Would definitely stay here again!
