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 stayed at the Glacier Mountaineer Lodge for 3 nights and went on the Via-Ferrata tour which is just great and a must unless you are afraid of heights.

A must do for travelers and locals wanting another unique view of Kicking Horse and the Columbia Valley/River. Guides are great and focused on making sure you stay up beat, motivated, and that your experience is first class (Jackie rocks!). My wife, who normally is afraid of heights felt safe the entire time. Probably being hooked into a big fat... More

Such a great location. The views where ever you are on the mountain are amazing. We took the gondola to the top and enjoyed lunch at Eagles Eye restaurant. Several great hikes at the top. Then we went to see Boo the Grizzly Bear, which was fab: Boo stayed next to the visitor center for ages and the ranger's talk... More

Visited the resort and refuge with my two adult daughters, and had a really lovely day. This is a really interesting, and fun, place and I only wish we had the time to try out the mountain biking – it looked really great. On arrival we started by visiting the gift shop as we mistakenly thought that is where the... More

Our whirlwind tour of Western Canada had us on the lookout for wildlife. We were not very successful so we're glad we decided to make this stop to see Boo the Grizzly bear. He seems to be quite happy, considering he's escaped twice and returned on his own both times.

Conquered Terminator Peak via the new KHMR Via Ferrata last week. Absolutely spectacular!!! The suspension bridge at the outset guarantees an early adrenaline rush, and if you are on the Ascension Route, there is no let up for the next 3 hours. Our guide was all unbridled enthusiasm, mirth and a sprinkle of sass. Thx for making the trip exhilarating... More

On our driving holiday we decided to visit Golden and the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. We arrived and bought the tickets that included the Grizzly Bear Refuge. We caught the gondola up the mountain and were awarded with stunning views of the ski fields and surrounds. At the top we had a delicious and surprising reasonable lunch surrounded by amazing...

We had a brilliant experience with KHMR in planning our mountain-top wedding at the Eagle's Eye. The staff (especially Steph!) were friendly, professional and responded to all inquires quickly and thoroughly. The location, of course, was simply stunning! We had our ceremony on the terrace and our reception at the Copperhorse Lodge. We really appreciated that KHMR did not nickel-and-dime... More

This is the most amazing summer mountain experience I have had. A friendly, enthusiastic guide led my small group up cliff faces and along high mountain ledges where I thought I could only dream of traveling. I am not a mountain climber by any stretch of the imagination, but this system of cables and ladders, foot holds and bars allowed... More
