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.

Family Ski Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 days and nights at this beautiful home on a family ski weekend. This home had everything we needed and more. The hot-tub and steam room were used extensively to ease sore legs from skiing in knee deep powder. The wood burning fireplace in the great room was a great gathering spot to tell tales about the days activities. We prepared all meals with the exception of a Saturday night visit to the Eagle Eye Restaurant and had everything required to prepare as needed. Everyone in our group agreed that this was the best weekend away for a number of years mostly due to the Black Wolf Chalet as a base.

A lovely home right on the hill.

  • 5 of 5

The property was large and had all the amenities we were looking for. We came with a large family group and had a wonderful stay. The coffee maker wasn't working and we were able to contact the owner and got a replacement coffee maker ASAP. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking for many people as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. And thank you for highlighting your experience with the coffee maker. Sometimes things go wrong but what we pride ourselves on is how we will try to make it right. We don't just leave a guest in a take it or leave it scenario but will make our best effort to resolve it in a satisfactory manner. Thank you for being understanding and recognizing that and highlighting it in the review. Gabriel

Awesome home. Well equipped and very comfortable.

Management is quick to respond and very straight forward to deal with.

We rode right up to the house - This is a true ski-in ski-out.

I would highly recommend renting this home.
