About Gabriel Higham

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 decided to name the house after that black wolf we saw. We hope that you will consider experiencing our wonderful home and get as much enjoyment out of it as we do.

Gabriel Higham purchased this house in 2010

Why Gabriel Higham chose Golden

We love to ski and Kicking Horse has some of the best skiing in North America. We absolutely love the snow and varied terrain of Kicking Horse. And the views are to die for.

Great Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our four adult kids and their significant others for a week of skiing. All ten of us give this house 5 STARS!! Absolutely everything you need is there. Kitchen was wonderful, with spices, cookware, small appliances(2 coffeemakers!), the slow cooker was great for cooking chilli all day while on the slopes. We loved skiing in for lunch and catching up with each other. The locals say this year is the worse snow they have seen in almost ten years, and yet we still had a great time. Beautiful scenery and we felt like we had the slopes to ourselves most of the time. Everyone we came across in Canada, Golden and Kicking Horse were sooo nice and friendly! The owner was super helpful and got back with us immediately when we had questions. He also gave us great ideas for activities and restaraunts. The snowmobiling was unbelievable. There was instructions for everything in the house and all the lights and thermostats were clearly marked. Check in check out was super easy. The hot tub and steam room felt wonderful, the outdoor grill was great, loved the heated floors and fireplaces. Even a heated deck with a beautiful view!! Plenty of room for all of us and then some. Can't say enough good things. We are definitely coming back, just trying to decide on summer or winter(or both)! Thanks, Gabe!

Great Place to Stay - Kicking Horse is Awesome

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. The architecture and decor was superb, and the house had everything we needed from appliances, cookware, spices, linens, and everything else under the sun. The check-in and check-out process was easy and there were instructions for everything so we didn't have to guess or figure anything out for ourselves. The owner was very professional and courteous. We couldn't have had a better experience. I will note that if you have toddlers or disabled travelers in your party that might have trouble getting up and down stairs then this might not be the best place for you. Toddlers would be fine if they listen and someone escorts them up and down the stairs.

Kicking Horse is a great ski mountain. The house was easy to ski into, and required a very short walk to ski out to the base (with enough fresh snow cover on the road you could ski out straight from the front door).

We will definitely return to Kicking Horse and when we do we will definitely rent this place again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review and so glad you got to experience the Kicking Horse we love. Please note that we can provide toddler gates to prevent young ones from using the stairs without supervision. Please consider us again - we 10% off to returning guests. Gabriel Higham

Perfect Properties

  • 5 of 5

I booked properties, the black wolf chalet and the grizzley chalet for a guy's golf/rafting weekend. The owners were very helpful answering questions and exchanging information. The places worked out very well for the number of guys we had. The Black wolf worked great for the catered meal we had on Saturday night lots of space to set up and eat. The back yard was perfect with the fireplace for a casual evening. Thank you very much Gabriel for two great places that added to a great weekend.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great stay in Golden. Having both homes is a big plus when it comes to handling large parties. And you get 10% off when you rent both. Hope you come back again.

Long Weekend Ski Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Black Wolf Chalet was the icing on the cake to our annual couples ski weekend getaway. The chalet is excellently equipped and stocked with kitchen utensils, towels, linens and slippers. You can't beat the location; ski right into the backyard and a short walk from the front door to the corner from which you can ski down to the gondola. The hot tub and steam room relax the achy knees after a great day of skiing.

Thank you for renting your home to us, it was a memorable weekend! I would recommend this place to anyone and it's in my books to go back next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review Morgan. We'd love to have you back again next year. The hot tub and steam shower really rejuvenate you for another day of skiing.

Gorgeous house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house that was in the perfect spot on the mountain. The ski in/ski out due to the house location was excellent, and being able to end the day by skiing straight to the back of the house was perfect.

The house itself is gorgeous, and pictures really don't do it justice. Lots of space, and everything you could need to have a comfortable and fun stay in Kicking Horse.

Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. When we looked at buying we specifically looked for a "true ski-in/ski-out" location because so many places take "creative license" with the term in their house descriptions and over the years we had experienced a few frustrations renting some of those places. I'm glad you can agree with our use of the term :)

Fantastic find!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic property for larger groups of family's! Everything exceeded expectation, from cleanliness to amenities. The kitchen was huge and in 4 days we didn't even eat out once. The sauna is a great bonus too. We were there in beautiful October too, in the off-season, and the mountain was half deserted! It was wonderful just hiking on the ski hill through the leaves turning color as the snowy covered peaks kept creeping down the mountains a bit more every day. We definitely plan to make a return trip!
