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 British Columbia Mountains

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.

This cabin is beautiful and spacious!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is beautiful and spacious! We stayed there for 2 nights for a Bachelorette party and had a blast. The hot tub and fire pit area were great! Lots of room and space for everyone. I'd defiantly go back but only in the winter when the bugs are gone.

The disappointing part was the bugs, we weren't aware that the misquitos were so bad in the summer there and had planned all of our activities outside. We got eaten alive(literally) and there was no warming or bug spray provided. We ended up having to stay inside for the most part and it was 30 degrees with no AC so it was smokin hot in there. We didn't let the bugs ruin our trip though and even tho we left covered in bites we all had a blast.

What a place

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location right up on the ski hill and close to the golf course. Couldn't ask for better service from Gabe first class all the way.

Loved it here!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a couple days in Kicking Horse at the Black Wolf Chalet. Very impressed with all the beds. Big and comfortable. Happy that we had enough towels in every bathroom. More then enough room for a couple of families to go together and the kids having room to play, without it being loud where the adults hang out. Very, very easy to communicate with Gabriel Higham, and he was very quick to get back to us whenever we needed something.

Large family friendly

  • 5 of 5

Rented this beautiful home from Gabriel for 5 nights as we needed a large home to meet and greet wedding guests and friends for our son's marriage . Could not ask for a better venue , house was spick and span when we arrived . Open beam concept , beautiful street view , and a great easy access . Smaller kids loved the hot tub and the bunk beds were the largest I have ever seen . We are planning a return stay next winter . Awesome says it all ...

Wonderful Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our multigenerational family stayed at Black Wolf Lodge during our recent trip to the Canadian Rockies. We found the house to be very comfortable. We appreciated all the small details from high thread-count sheets to laundry detergent and fabric softener to condiments/salt/napkins in the pantry. Gabriel was extremely communicative and responsive via e mail. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great stay. It's something we don't advertise much (perhaps we should) but we only stock 1000+ (usually it's 1200) thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and 900 GSM Egyptian cotton towels. Please stay again - we do give 10% off to returning guests.
