Golden, British Columbia, Canada
(Property location is approximate)
Additional Location Information
Nearest Airport : Calgary at 250 Kilometres

The house is located in Kicking Horse Resort above the town of Golden, British Columbia. Golden is on the main Trans Canada Highway - the primary east west route - about two and a half hours drive from Calgary. Vancouver is seven to eight hours drive further west. Golden is on the Columbia river at the confluence with the Kicking Horse river. The valley runs north south and is part of the Rocky Mountain trench. The location is ideal for easy access to other resort areas; Banff, Lake Louise, Canmore, Radium Hot Springs, and Invermere, all with one and a half to two hours drive time.
The house itself is located on Golden Avenue, a cul de sac of just 15 houses, approximately 300m from the base of the gondola, the main lift access from the centre of the resort to the top of the local mountain and the Eagle's Eye restaurant. Golden Avenue is the third turning on the right after passing the gondola.
Other Activities: Wolf sanctuary. Grizzly Bear refuge. Day trips to Banff, Lake Louise
Golf: www.golfgolden.com. Excellent golf course in Golden, close to the Columbia River. Golden's 11th hole rated best par 4 in BC. Other great courses nearby at Invermere and Canmore
Ski: Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has the second highest vertical in Canada (after Whistler), but because it is inland has better snow - champagne powder.
The resort is better suited to the competent skier/boarder as many of the runs are challenging, but there are good beginner areas and a very capable snow school.
There are cross country and snow shoeing trails. Dawn Mountain Nordic Club.
The Eagle's Eye restaurant at the top of the gondola has won the award for the best mountain restaurant in North America for three years in succession - great food, but not expensive.
