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.

Great day out

We spent most of the day here. We got a pass for the gondola to the top and the half way lift to see Boo the bear. We went to see Boo first. We'd only been there a few minutes and... read more

We spent most of the day here. We got a pass for the gondola to the top and the half way lift to see Boo the bear. We went to see Boo first. We'd only been there a few minutes and we were all looking for him. He then came out and we saw him for about 5 minutes then... More

Participated in the Via Feratta Discovery tour today. It was awesome. For a novice "climber" it was exhilarating. Our guide, Jackie, was great - so enthusiastic. The scenery was amazing. Bring warm layers, grippy gloves, sturdy shoes, and pants even in summer. The weather at the top of the mountain is much different than down the mountain and you'll be... More

My 12 year old son and I conquered "the Terminator" at Kicking Horse Resort in Golden, BC. Our incredible climb was called "The Discovery": a 2 hour Via Ferrata trek scaling the walls of Terminator mountain. Absolutely amazing. And I (45 years old) felt extremely safe while teetering on ridges and rocks. I completely trusted this system - my harness... More

A great spot but badly managed. Things are really at 6's and 8' and the rental rates are ridiculous.

We found this gem by recommendation of our rafting guide. It's off the beaten path, but totally worth it. We didn't stay there, but did ride the gondola to the very, very top (7,700 feet), where we had a beverage at the restaurant. We had just eaten; otherwise lunch at the top would have been amazing. The views are spectacular... More

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
