Meet the Team


Going the distance and exceeding expectations.

Darrin DeRosa , your host at The Cedar House Chalets, was captured  by the majestic mountains of British Columbia over 20 years ago. His strong passion for adventure matched with his natural hospitality is the foundation of this unique resort. Darrin has had a ‘hands on’ approach from the beginning, designing, building and furnishing all of the gorgeous chalets personally. When the opportunity for some personal time presents itself Darrin indulges in mountain culture and can usually be found biking in summer and skiing in winter.  With plenty  of experience as a guide in the area Darrin is a wealth of knowledge to guests looking to explore the land.


Kristen enjoys snowboarding, hiking, camping and rock climbing all of which are more easily accessible living in Golden. Along with outdoor activities she also enjoys live music, spending time with family & friends, travelling and trying new food & activities. Kristen is easy going and has a great desire to make your stay at Cedar House memorable and relaxing. She is very happy to be in Golden and looks forward to riding Kicking Horse this year. See you on the slopes and at Cedar House Chalets!
