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.

MASTERPIECE

This all hand built timberframe bridge is a work of art. Built by volunteers and fine craftsmen, it is a must see in Golden

We stayed in the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and it was like a little piece of heaven. We were there in the fall their shoulder season and it was wonderful. Our accommodations were perfect with a two bedroom two bath condo with a beautiful kitchen and large living room with fireplace. But the best was outside on the deck with... More

Kicking Horse surpassed all expectations. I went there for the first time to do some spring skiing this year... and it blew my mind! I grew up skiing the steeps in Alaska, so I have a bias opinion of what most resorts call black diamond. 60% of the over 122 runs at Kicking Horse are Advanced or Expert, and they... More

We spent four weeks at KH in February 2014, staying in a one bedroom condo at the base of the gondola. I rate ski hills on the terrain, snow quality and lift lines and KH blows away the competition in all three categories. In reality you’ll probably ride the gondola and one other chair (the lift infrastructure is minimalist), but... More

I went to Kicking Horse with my friend for the first time in March 2015. I really like it and I want to return often. This is not a place for beginner. I skied at the summit, where are the bowls and it is really impressive. Everything is so big. There are black and double black at the summit.

By far my favorite ski hill in Western Canada. For years I'd yearned to find a mountain where I wasn't constantly dodging beginner skiiers who felt they could handle difficult runs, or making my way through moguls which weren't scraped to pieces by those who didn't know how to handle them. Kicking Horse presented just that. As a more advanced... More

My kids and I visited Kicking Horse for one day of skiing mid-March. As others have noted, the lower mountain looked like end of the season spring skiing but we had a great day up top and I'd love to return to this mountain under better conditions (next year has to be better, right?). My main reason for writing is... More

We had a great time @ KHMR! The ride to the top was breathtaking in the Gondola. Boo, the Grizzly Bear, was awake for us as an added bonus. The snow conditions up top were awesome. Super customer service from the staff @ KHMR. We couldn't have asked for more and will definitely be back.

This mountain resort was amazing despite the lack of snow at the base of the hill. The gondola ride to the top was thrilling and you ride over a grizzly bear reserve. The terrain and views at the top were spectacular-the best I've seen. There was a lot of steep terrain but there were also easy ways down as well.... More

Kicking Horse always delivers and this was shown this year on a particularly bad snow year. The lower third of the mountain was dismal, but considering what mountain ops had to work with, they did a fantastic job attempting to keep a clear route down to the bottom. I chose to stay in the alpine because the snow was the... More
