Living in Golden
At present, KHMR does not provide 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 joining the Golden Classifieds group on Facebook, or checking the local newspaper, The Golden Star, for rental and property listings. There is high demand for 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.
In the winter season, our Staff Shuttle Bus runs daily between several stops in Golden and KHMR. Also, we strongly encourage our staff to carpool up to the resort. We recognize one staff member each month with a Carpooling Award, which is a free oil change at Fountain Tire!
