Living in Golden
At present, KHMR does not have staff accommodation facilities. However, Employee Experience does offer a Housing Newsletter to new employees seeking housing. The newsletter includes short and long-term accommodation options including hostels in town and is sent to all new hires.
The Town of Golden is located only 20 minutes from the Resort and offers several options for accommodation. We recommend the local newspaper, The Golden Star, for rental and property listings. There is high demand for local accommodation in December, so it is suggested that housing be secured early. More information about renting in British Columbia is found at Residential Tenancy BC.
At present, there is no public or private shuttle offered to make your way to and from the resort. We strongly encourage our staff to car pool and there is a local spot at the corner of Kicking Horse Trail and 9th St N. where you can hitch a ride from traffic heading up to the resort. Having your own method of transportation is ideal, but not necessary.
Golden & Area
Golden is a mountain town of over 4,000 residents, located in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. It is nestled in the valley along the Trans-Canada highway and is close to the BC-Alberta border. Golden is a vibrant, rapidly diversifying town with a profound sense of community spirit. With tourism playing an increased role in its personality, Golden is attracting people who want to experience a real, authentic B.C. community in a natural, unspoiled mountain setting.
