Q&A: If accommodation isn’t included, where should I stay?

We have a singular focus. Delivering the best heli-ski experience of your life.

But we know your holiday has other moving parts, and we can help set the stage by connecting you with local resources and local knowledge, so it’s the trip you’re looking for from wheels down at YYC.

Here’s what I’d recommend for places to stay in Golden or at Kicking Horse.

Which sounds like you?


Heli-skiing is my only focus too. I want max convenience and integration with your program.

Our meeting point is on Lafontaine Road, opposite from Kicking Horse on the edge of town. Not five minutes from our door you’ll find Home Lodge, a luxury B&B just a few minutes from the town centre. Secluded, scenic and luxurious, it can be booked out privately by groups or by the room.

Private ensuite for every room, hot tub, great food… what more could you want?

My trip includes frontcountry days at Kicking Horse, and I want ski-in/out access to the lifts.

Who doesn’t love NOT carrying your gear?

You can choose efficient and affordable one- and two-bedroom condos at the Glacier/Mountaineer (the views in all directions are great), higher-end and quieter at the Palliser, or enjoy the high-end personal touch and cozy vibes of Vagabond Lodge.

I want space and amenities beyond the typical hotel experience. A kitchen, a living room, a private hot tub.

If you’re a group of three or more, a private chalet is likely within reach. Stone fireplaces, gear rooms, gourmet kitchens, deluxe walk-in showers – make your home on the mountain and have all the space you could ever need.

Some places are nearly ski-in/out, some will be a minute or two drive from the gondola and our meeting point.
