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

Great ski area, but not for the faint hearted, although there is always an 'easy out' route! Good on mountain facilities, tThe food in the coffee shop was lovely! The road up to the resort was fine, and there was plenty of parking.

Really only 3 lifts but one is a 4000+' gondola. In terms of terrain, narrower but taller than Snowbird, Utah with the same kind of challenge. Justifiably proud of its many double black chutes, but know before you go! Many of them contain surprises that can't be seen from the top. Most of the Intermediate runs here would be marked... More

close to the TransCanada Highway. Powder and black diamond runs unforgettable. Could use another lift on busy days, but during the week it is like your own private ski resort.

The town of Golden has no rentals for childern. So the only place to do it is at the resort. Having known the pricing arangements for their equipment before hand I would have rented somewhere else as for the problem I encountered. It was that the equipment I needed for my newhew was being charged out as an adult. They... More

Wonderful expert terrain. This place challenged me to new levels! So exciting to see it on a bluebird day as well and appreciate the beauty of the landscape. I recommend this for intermediate and better shralpers. The "easy" from top of the gondola is rather narrow and flat, get good enough to drop off the cat track into steep chutes... More

Monday to Friday this is skiing heaven, one main lift and a few chairs are ample during the week but expect qeues at the weekend. During the week the resort caters well for all levels. Superb ski school, one of the best in the world. Excellent hire stores and cafes. The restaurant at the top of the gondola offers good... More

Not many lifts but lots of routes down via piste bashed or au nature runs and access to some steep 'chutes' and black tree runs made easy from the two ridges. How many of these laps you can do in a day became the objective after a while. No snow hostinh

Picturesque drive under two hours from Banff. Small town resort with big vertical! Here the black diamonds are equivalent to double blacks anywhere else, blues = blacks, greens = blues. Must visit the restaurant at the top. Expensive but worth it. Can go just for drinks (highest bar in North America!) or enjoy some great food. Lifts are slow and... More

KHMR offers a ski experience high-level it is essential to experience in his life. In 3 days we received 52 cm of snow, you can not imagine more beautiful scenery. The restaurant at the top, Eagle's Eye Restaurant offers an experience and a sight not to be missed. At the foot of the mountain, coffee and pub offering good meal... More

OK, I will admit that KHMR has some great terrain and could be an epic resort if it weren't for its inadequate lift system, absence of grooming, lack of facilities, and poor customer service. First, the only terrain really worth skiing here is located on the upper mountain. However, to access the terrain, you only have two options via a... More
