About Jonathan Nesbitt
I went to Golden and Kicking Horse Resort back in 2006 on what was supposed to be a one off trip. I was so taken with the place that I started building my house in late 2007!
Having extensively traveled the world I still find myself yearning to get back to my 'home away from
This truly is a Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. From skiing and snowmobiling in the winter months to biking, golfing and hiking in the summer, there is something for everyone and you don't have to put up with the crowds of some other year round ski resorts.
I have taken immense pleasure in building what I consider to be one of the most unique and enjoyable homes on the mountain.
It is my wish that you enjoy Kicking Horse and the surrounding area as much as I do. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via the 'email owner' tab above.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Jonathan Nesbitt purchased this house in 2007
