Overview

About the property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-12)

Dogtooth Vista is ideally located on Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and has great ‘ski-in ski –out’ access. Watch the sunrise over panoramic views of Mt Seven , Yoho National Park and the Blaeberry through floor to ceiling gable end windows. The west gable with its large window onto the ski hill and the Dogtooth Mountain range becomes the centre of attention in the late afternoon. The sunken hot tub offers a great place to gather after an exhilarating day skiing or imagine simply lounging on the sun-soaked expansive rear deck.

The Chalet uniquely combines the old world rustic qualities of a mountain retreat with modern convenience and technology. The centerpiece of the house is a grand great room which is divided by a two-sided wood burning fireplace into a large spacious kitchen and central island perfect for apres ski festivities, and a comfortable living room. Through the centre of the house runs a large impressive timber frame truss, an architectural reflection on the early 20th century activities of the logging railroad, which is still evident traversing through the Dawn Mountain Cross Ski trails just to the rear of the chalet. In contrast 21st century amenities are in abundance and include Wifi internet, streamed tv and movies, HD satellite tv, large private outdoor hot-tub, wet-dry Finnish sauna, gourmet kitchen, granite counter tops, great room with 20 foot ceiling, second living room, dining room, geothermal radiant heat on all floors, two-sided wood fireplace and wood-stove, drying area and ski storage, tasteful furnishings.

The chalet is very spacious (3400 sq ft)with four bedrooms and 3 bathrooms,and sleeps comfortably 6- 12 people. It is perfect for couples and families with flexible rates available.

This idyllic retreat is truly the best of both worlds; perfectly positioned for winter and summer vacations.

Situated in a natural, rural setting amongst the trees, you can enjoy privacy while relaxing in the hot tub on the deck. Ski in-ski out downhill access, and cross-country ski, mountain bike, hike or walk - off the beaten track - directly from your door. For the more adventurous world class back country skiing and mountaineering can be experienced at Roger’s Pass and the Bugaboos. Summer activities include 18 hole golf, horseback riding, para gliding, swimming, canoeing, fishing, rock climbing.

Located in very private surroundings with access to some of the best skiing in North America and the many fine restaurants, stores, and entertainment available at the Kicking Horse.

Specific details regarding sleeping accommodation include:

Four spacious bedrooms with king size beds that can be divided into singles;

a master bedroom with an additional single bed and pull out trundle perfect for a single family;

two extremely comfortable queen size pull out sofa mattresses situated in the loft area and 4th bedroom.

Great stay near Kickng Horse

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying near kicking horse. Plenty of space for larger groups. The hot tub, ping-pong, fooseball, and sauna definitely help keep everyone entertained and relaxed. The owner very responsive- within an hour or two every time had a question about the booking or the house. We'd definitely like to come back again.

A stellar house that easily fits 12 people!

  • 5 of 5

I just wrapped up a 3 night stay at Dogtooth Vista with a group of 12 guys.

The beautiful home offered lots of space, secure storage for our ski/snowboard gear, and everyone had their own bed.

We were able to ski right to the door at the end of the day and in the mornings it was a short walk to the ski in trail down to the base lodge.

The central fire place plus the hot tub and sauna provided ample therapeutic remedies after long days on the slopes.

This is a great place for larger groups.

Beautiful home - Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property for a group of 12 adults for a ski weekend and we were definitely not disappointed! The property was absolutely beautiful with more than enough room for all of us. The kitchen area was incredibly well stocked and we never ran out of the items you usually do with a larger group (cups, cutlery and plates). The sauna was a great addition to the hot tub especially when all 12 people arrive back at the house after a day of skiing at the exact same time. Garage was heated with a ping pong table - wonderful evening activity! Danielle was very accommodating in meeting our needs including setting up the beds in an arrangement that worked for our group and always answered all questions in a timely manner. Beds were very comfortable and sound didn't travel into the rooms if people chose to go to sleep earlier than everyone else. The walk to the base of mountain (gondola) is a little bit far, about 10 minutes but there is a path and some parts that you can ski down. A huge bonus was the abundant hooks in the boot room and garage for ski gear to hang dry. Each room also had several hooks. Only downside was that the speaker system installed throughout the house did not work, but a smaller iPod speaker was supplied which was a nice addition. Overall, would definitely recommend this property to a friend! We had a fantastic time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review about our chalet. We are pleased to hear that your group enjoyed their stay and that the chalet met your needs. The single family homes are situated above the main gondola area and for future reference there is a ski in trail, a short 200 metres walk from the property that serves as access to reaching the base of the gondola. I trust that you found the ski out trail that exits directly at the back of the property. In terms of the music system, the inbuilt stereo is only available for the personal use of the owners and is switched off. However a portable speaker is for rental use and allows plug in of your own personal music device. Thank you for your business and hope that you visit us again.

Girl's Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Danielle for a wonderful home away from home - a group of friends stayed for a weekend and had a wonderful time. Dogtooth Vista comfortably hosted our group of 6 and has comfortable beds, a lovely dining and kitchen area, well stocked kitchen, a nice living room with a fireplace that can be enjoyed with cooking or relaxing, and a wonderful hot-tub and sauna. There are neighbours around, but it still felt private and peaceful. We appreciated your advice on outdoor pursuits and enjoyed hiking and checking out Kicking Horse, and also appreciated your thoroughness, promptness with answering our questions and flexibility with our group's particular needs. I would highly recommend staying here- we stayed in early autumn, I am sure it would also be an amazing haven in winter!
