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

We enjoyed the views of the mountains and the valley and especially loved seeing 'Boo' the grizzly bear! One of the highlights of our trip!

We were staying in Golden and decided to go and see Boo the Grizzly bear. Boo lives in a 20-acre enclosure where he has plenty of room to play, forage and enjoy dips in his pond. Boo is 11 years old and weighs around 275 kilograms. The cost of visiting Boo and the gondola ride is $ 45.95 in summer.... More

We didn't stay at the resort, we just visited for the mountain hikes and Boo. After seeing the place though, we would love to return and stay during ski season. These look like some of the best slopes I've seen, and apparently they get a really deep coverage of snow. That aside, the hikes across the ridges, and down the... More

We were only here for 2 days, but while we were there it was wonderful. The condo's are really nice and new. The staff is great as well as the view. The only thing that wasn't that great was the bed :( It was small and not real comfortable.

The staff at the saloon were very friendly and the selection of beer, wine and food was surprising. It was a great relaxing afternoon.

We took a trip to see Boo the Grizzly Bear at the refugee. He walked close by the fence which was a great feeling. The guides told us a lot about him as well as about grizzlys in general. They had a lot of knowledge and told us very interesting facts. Worth a visit! We took as well the gondola... More

I had booked lunch at the Eagle Eye restaurant at the top of the mountain - the gondola ride gave us an overview of the area and the views at the top were spectacular. Lunch was lovely (I had warned them in advance that we were vegetarians). We also visited rescued Grizzly bear 'Boo' - he has a huge space... More

I was extremely happy with the view of the mountains that came with my room which was the only great part of my stay at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. My room along with all of the wedding parties rooms were extremely disgusting from the dirty dishes in the cupboards to the dust, to the crushed Cheerios's all over the... More
