Kicking Horse has attracted rave reviews after just seven seasons for its awesome vertical, deep powder and spectacular terrain mix. 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.

We didn't stay at the resort but did take the gondola trip up the mountain. As one afraid of heights, I loved it! The operators of the gondolas were great about stopping it when they noticed my cane & wouldn't take a tip. The view on top was wonderful. While the restaurant wasn't open when we arrived, they allowed us... More

My sister and I rented a condo here for 4 days at the end of August. The resort has a very homey, local feel to it (much more than the complex we stayed at in Canmore). In fact, the next door neighbors were the owners of their condo. They warmly greeted us and grabbed our luggage and carried them up... More

This is a must in this area. The 22 acre park with the Grizzly is unique. The view from the restaurant at the top is an extra event to the good food.

We got a great deal on our room, which if I were being completely honest definitely increases my rating. The room was nice and all we needed, but a little small. It was absolutely beautiful on the mountain though. Make sure to go up the gondola, take a hike and have lunch in their restaurant! Nothing beats a local craft... More

The Via Ferrata is new at Kicking Horse and, like all things Kicking Horse, they ratchet up the technical challenge! We made this a family affair (kids 14 & 17), taking on the four hour option instead of the two, and it was thrilling for everyone! There are lots of different elements, from the suspension bridge to challenging pitches. The... More
