With an express gondola accessing over 4100 ft (1260m) of vertical, you’re bound to ski and ride an impressive feat of terrain comparable to only that of heli-skiing. Coupled with summer activities such as mountain biking, wildlife education, and alpine sightseeing, this is a place where the stories are almost too tall to believe. « less

We did the combined the gondola and grizzly bear refuge. It was great! We went up to the top in the gondola (saw "Boo" the bear swimming on the way up), hiked around a bit, came down went up the chair lift (new experience for the kids) to the grizzly bear refuge. Missed the tour time but the lady working... More

We have never been to the resort during the winter. I have heard many wonderful things about Kicking Horse but have always thought it a bit far from Edmonton. We decided to spend a couple of days in Golden before heading to Banff this summer. We arrived at the Resort, purchased our passes and made our way up a very... More

We have spent many Winter days skiing the challenging chutes and knee deep powder, not to mention the great Nordic centre, but Summer here is just as much fun. First off, this isn't Banff or Jasper, it's a quiet resort with people hiking, mountain biking, and just generally enjoying the Summer. We stayed at the same place we do during... More

The resort relatively new and is still 'settling down' although there were actual building works during our stay, areas looked newly finished. The resort is mainly aimed at skiers so the summer months are quite retreats or mountain biking. Due to this, there was a lack of atmosphere but as our stay was over Canada day there were celebrations within... More

the price was reasonable for the adventure package which included the chair lift to see Boo the 10 year old grizzly bear who lives there and a trip up the mountain on the gondola, it was a 2 day pass for $36. There were a lot of mountain bikers on the lifts and the hiking paths also looked wonderful, it... More

Brilliant, we go every year. 3 attractions: The restaurant on top of the Gondola, the Gondola ride, and Boo the Grizzly. Love it all, we feel like we're on top of the world! Go in the morning to see Boo, then have lunch on top of the world. Decent food, looks fancy but not 5 star taste.

We had not planned to stop here at Kicking Horse, but we decided it might be nice to check it out since we were staying nearby. The view from the top is great, on a clear day you can see several national parks. As a bonus you can add to your ticket Boo, he is a 600 lb. Grizzley. The... More

We found a terrific deal on line for $75.00 per night for a fully serviced one bedroom condo. It had a dishwasher, washer, dryer, etc. but the furniture was beat up and two of the dining room chairs were too big for the table - don't fit between the table legs. There are weeds growing through the bricks on the... More

We stayed here for two nights. (hotel review separate) . On our first day we took in the Gondola ride. It was a little pricy but the views are amazing and we could see mountain bikers making their way down the hill. Amazing stuff! Seriously, If you're a mountain biker or into hiking this place has a lot to offer!... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Glacier Lodge & our trip up the Gondola. Beautiful 1 bdrm condo but, the only drawback, no air conditionning! Fan helped but our stay would have been almost perfect if they had had a/c. Amazing views as well!
