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

For mountain bikers, the greens are fairly challenging, but not all that busy so you can take your time. Huge mountain if you go way up the top on the gondola-very rocky up there though.

If you're staying or passing trough Golden you have absolutely to ho to kicking horse mountain resort. The tour around Boo's refuge in order to find him is really funny and the guide will explain everything about bears. The gondola ride is wonderful and once ok top the view is breathtaking.

Before this trip, I wasn't even aware of Kicking Horse Mtn Resort, but heard about Eagle's Eye restaurant on a website reviewing the worlds coolest restaurants (it's Canada's highest restaurant @ 7,700 ft), and thought it looked worth checking out. And worth checking out it is! We booked two nights stay at the Glacier Mountaineer Lodge, and can easily say... More

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
