About the property

2 Bdrm, 1 Bath, True Ski In/out, Sleeps 4 Adults, Great Views From Hot Tub.

One of the nicest top floor townhouses in the award winning Aspens. This is a top row unit with no buildings above you. Ski to your door. Amazing views of the Columbia Valley from your private hot tub. All the things you'd expect from a great rental . . . premium bedding and linens, well appointed kitchen with all the tools to make a gourmet meal, heated kitchen and bathroom floors, fireplace, 42' flat-screen with cable and home-theater, high-speed wifi, an outdoor grill, lockable heated ski-locker and heated secure parking. The Blu-Ray AV system has Netflix access if you have an account plus an audio plug-in for your iPad/Phone/etc. For those wanting to catch the news before sleeping, there's a small second TV in the second bedroom with a separate cable box.

Winter offers you amazing skiing in knee-deep champagne powder or go for a cross-country kick on 33 km of groomed skate and classic trails. Take the kids skating or tubing at the village base, or just hang out by the fireplace and read that novel you've been trying to catch up on. During the Summer, challenge yourself to some of the best mountain biking in Canada or hike pristine wilderness at the base or from the top of the Gondola. Go visit Boo the Grizzly at the on mountain bear refuge, do some fishing, or play one of the nicest mountain golf courses--the Golden Golf & Country Club, just at the base of the mountain road. And, just for the fun of it, have lunch or dinner at the highest elevation restaurant in Canada, the Eagle Eye.

Winter or Summer, you'll love Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, enjoyed in style.

About Leo Liersch

We are two career people, both in the IT industry, that would rather be outside than inside.

Leo Liersch purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Leo Liersch chose Golden

We are avid skiers, hikers and golfers. For the last 5 years we've been spending more than a month every year at Kicking Horse, so we finally decided it was time to own a place here.

This is an amazing resort. In winter you can spend one day hiking to T1 and T2 to ski untracked, the next skiing incredible lift serviced runs, chutes and glades, and then the next skiing nordic trails at Dawn Mountain, just a 3 minute drive from the townhouse. During the summer we love golfing the Golden Country Club. It's super challenging, but fair and really well maintained. The hiking around here is beautiful. There aren't a lot of places where you can do so much all in one resort. Plus, go to town, it's got everything you could need, good places to eat, and the people are really nice.

We live at Pigeon Lake, just outside of Edmonton, and the 5.5 hour drive to get here is a tiny price to pay for such a great experience. We hope you fall in love with this mountain the way we have.

What makes this townhome unique

This unit in the Aspens is on the top row of the development. We paid a bit more for the true ski in, ski out location, the sun on the deck during the day and the quietness of being tucked up next to the trees. We love the smell of the forest at night.

Don't think twice- book this place!

  • 5 of 5

Simply gorgeous apartment with absolutely everything you could want. Photos do not do it justice. Beautiful views of the valley below from the deck and a great place to explore Kicking Horse Mountain, Golden and Yoho National Park.

Apartment is meticulously clean and organised, Leo was very helpful with recommendations and accommodating us with a later checkout.

Will be back without hesitation if in Golden again!

Great ski trip

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal for our family of three. The location was great (it is ski in and only a few hundred steps to ski out). Very quiet and comfortable. The property includes underground parking with ski locker (I drive an SUV with roof box and it fits in the UG parking), full kitchen with all the supplies (includes washer, dryer, fridge, stove, dishwasher), sit up eating at the counter or full dining room table, couch, loveseat, TV, DVD player (plus some movies), sound surround, good wifi, 2 bedroom (with comfortable beds) and full bath (the bathroom and kitchen have heated tile floors), the spacious deck has a hot tub and BBQ.

The suite is on the second level of the building so you need to climb some stairs but on the other hand you don't have anyone looking in your window or onto the deck.

The owner responded quickly and provided clear instructions and correspondence.

I would definitely recommend the property and will use it again if available when I return to Golden.

All in all we loved the property and had a great time.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 days at this condo and it was apparent that these owners take great pride in the place. Two things rentals are always lacking is a good bbq and a knife sharpener, this unit had both good knives for cooking and a brand new bbq. We will stay here for our next visit for sure. The hill is very quiet in November which made for a relaxing romantic getaway.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the condo. It is exactly as advertised, the pictures are very accurate and it was clean. The view of the mountains while sitting on the deck or in the hot tub is beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked with all the basic so we could prepare all our own meals. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet by staying outside of town but you are still close enough that you could get anything you needed. We went white water rafting, drove the ice fields parkway, toured Yoho National Park and visited Boo the Grizzly and took the gondola and hiked at Kicking Horse Mountain. If we are ever coming back, we would defiantly return. Thank you for a fantastic stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks Danielle, very kind of you. Always nice to hear good things about our place. We come up and hang out once a month and make sure things are nice for our guests. We'd be happy to host you again if you decide to come back up and play at KHMR!
