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 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

Some people that I met and ended up skiing with for part of the day said that their tour leader had referred to Kicking Horse as "the most mountain-y ski resort they may ever see." I completely understand this sentiment. The ride to the top in an 8-person gondola is nothing short of spectacular (puts the Banff Sulphur Mountain gondola... More

I tried this mountain for the first time with a group of friends, 15 of us in all. we were all at a different level so our preferences were different. I love challenging terrain and prefer black diamond or double black diamond runs almost exclusively. To be fair the snow conditions were not very good when we were there as... More

If you are looking for the best that Canada has to offer, this is truly a must for Skiers as well as downhill mountain biking. I have now been in the summer as well as winter and I can give this resort 4 stars. I wish the weather could Cooperate so that Rcr could expand the village. I love the... More

This resort has the best collection of steep terrain I have found anywhere. Great chutes and steep walls. We had "the worst February in 40 years" to deal with, but still had fun. Intermediates and beginners would need better snow to have fun.

P1 and P2. The chutes in all of the lovely bowls. Very nice people running the place. The restaurant on top is elegant and fine dining, but happy to have you in for a latte or a beer! You gotta go!
