In the winter, skiing, snowboarding at Kicking Hose Resort is unparalled. In the summer the hiking in Yoho National Park, Glacier National Park(Canadian version) is a short drive away.

Where you’ll be

Golden, British Columbia, Canada

Vagabond Lodge is located in a adventure playground with skiing, (nordic and downhill), snowboarding and snow shoeing in the winter in our back yard in the winter. And in the summer there are some of the best hikes in the Rockies within easy reach(30 minutes) in both Yoho and Glacier National Parks. Banff is 1 and a half hours, Lake Louise is 1 hour and Jasper about 3 hours. There is a nice restaurant next door as well as a pub a few seconds walk away which also serves some pretty good pub food. The town of Golden which is a great little working-class town(logging and railway) is just 10 minutes away. Golden has a lot of culture with live music almost overnight somewhere or another and some great restaurants and pubs. The town is full of young people who are here to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. Golden is blessed with a great hospital and other services for the community.
