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

The scenery was awesome. The hotel is clean and modern except no AC and older TVs. WiFi was free and worked well for checking emails.

It is an excellent place to learn about the grizzly bear with their resident bear named Boo. Taking the gondola to the top provides for so e breathtaking views of the Rockies. The restaurant at the top is a nice place to eat with great views all around. The trails at the top are for the serious hikers but are... More

This was an experience I wish to forget even if it was only 1 night. It was summer and hot. A place without ac was a bad idea! I thought a fan would be provided but none was until requested. The fan that we did get was huge, noisey and realy never worked. When I looked behind the TV for... More

we came with the kids to see the view by taking the gondola to the top of the mountain, the view is amazing, better than lake louis and banff gondola. the food needs to improve a little though.

Loved the scenery and range of activities, from mountain biking to mountain hiking. Was caught unawares with the early closing of the cable car (4.45 pm), which was quite a disappointment.

We had a great time here and there is something for most people. We took the Adventure day pass (about $40 cad each) and we got to meet Boo the resident Grizzly bear which was outstanding and two Gondola rides (one to Boo's habitat and one to the top). The guides who showed us around Boo's habitat were very passionate... More

Did the gondola ride at kicking horse mountain up to the top. Was a nice ride up, walked around up there for a good 20 minuetes , then came back down. Definitely some nice places to hike around, bike, etc. Nice little chalet up there to eat. Check it out if you are in the area.

Great skiing in the winter, great mountain biking in the summer! Varied, and fun, terrain! This is one of my favorite spots! The Eagle's Eye restaurant on the summit is outstanding and the views are magnificent! There are lots of great lodging options...but be careful, becasue once you try this place, you'll be hooked! : )

Okay to save your knees and time take the gondola up and then you have the option to hike terminator ridge and also dogtooth ridge. I was fortunate enough to see a Grizzly (no not the one in the pen) but midway up the hill so that was another bonus. On Terminator ridge climb to the T2 summit and there... More
