Local Family of Four (now living all over BC) bought unit in 2008 as a family retreat to take advantage of the great opportunities at KHMR.
Our condo is located at the South end of the ski resort, close enough for easy access but far enough away to have some peace and quiet to relax after a long day on the mountain. We purchased the unit due to the location in the development, north facing and for the views of the Columbia Valley, a jewel not to be missed is the morning alpen glow on the mountains! KHMR is an amazing mountain with great early and late season skiing and snow coverage. This resort continues to grow and develop offering you the best in skiing, a wide variety or steeps and chutes for the experts and the development of a broad beginner and intermediate skier area. Take advantage of skiing at KHMR other than the Christmas season and you will find that you will have the ski hill to yourself!
In the summer time, a truly unique experience is the Grizzly Bear Refuge - where you can learn and watch a grizzly bear within a natural enclosure. Boo was orphaned when his mother was shot by a poacher and the Refuge offers Boo a second chance at life, is working to help future orphan cubs and educates the public - an opportunity that will invoke a deeper connection to our majestic wild animals!
This is a great place to ski, relax, and vacation. Golden is a great little town with tones of personality and KHMR offers a unique winter and summer experience!

Winter At KHMR...things to DO...
Eagle's Eye Restaurant
Golden & Surrounding Area....
Hot Springs - Radium and Fairmont Hot Springs
Golf: The Golden Golf Course - Only 8km from KHMR
The course was built in two phases. Bill Newis designed the front nine, a stunning course which opened in 1986. In 1996 Les Furber created the back nine, which is arguably his finest 9-hole layout. Although different architects designed the two nines, they complement each other perfectly.
Our signature hole, the eleventh, showcases the beautiful environment and the fair challenges that make the course so enjoyable. The tee overlooks the refreshing waters of Holt Creek, powerful enough that the calming sound resonates through most of the back nine. The Rockies are a spectacular backdrop as you watch your ball sail down the tree-lined fairway and across the creek, a picture-perfect setting.
As a club, we take great pride in the fact that there are no residences on, or around the golf course; instead, each hole is almost entirely lined by natural forest. The course has no boundary markers or out of bounds. If you can find your ball, it is in play.
Be sure to bring your camera. It is very common to sight wildlife such as eagles, osprey, coyotes, deer, and black bears during a round of golf.
The playability and natural beauty of our course provide the ideal setting for a memorable experience. For the best of BC, golf at the Golden Golf Club--the perfect spot to get away from it all.
This beautiful and serene location is 2,592 feet above sea level.
Ski: At Kicking Horse, we’re proud to garner rave reviews for our incredible verticals, deep ‘champagne’ powder and a truly spectacular and unique terrain mix. With ridiculously long downhill runs, and the option to heli-ski, Kicking Horse is a place where the stories are almost too tall to believe.
The fourth highest vertical drop in North America, the raw ruggedness of our mountain, our amazing always-fresh powder, and the sheer beauty of our pristine scenery set Kicking Horse apart as one of the most exceptional ski resorts in British Columbia.
