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

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

What a great thing to do while in Golden. Give yourself a good 4 hrs at least to allow some walking time while up top. Some nice easy trails to walk around and great restaurant to sit outside and have a beer.

We got married in July at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and it was absolutely spectacular! Everything, from the service we received prior to the wedding, the food and the service on the day of was continuously impressive. And that's not even mentioning the view! 360 degree of stunning mountain peeks made for the most incredible wedding experience and photos! Their... More

So worth going out of the way to see. This was far better than Banff as it was much less busy, cheaper, better view, more paths, and more freedom to move about. If you are even considering visiting here, don't hesitate. It was the most beautiful thing I have seen. Paths were stroller friendly yet also had options for experienced... More

We did the combined the gondola and grizzly bear refuge. It was great! We went up to the top in the gondola (saw "Boo" the bear swimming on the way up), hiked around a bit, came down went up the chair lift (new experience for the kids) to the grizzly bear refuge. Missed the tour time but the lady working... More

We have never been to the resort during the winter. I have heard many wonderful things about Kicking Horse but have always thought it a bit far from Edmonton. We decided to spend a couple of days in Golden before heading to Banff this summer. We arrived at the Resort, purchased our passes and made our way up a very... More

We have spent many Winter days skiing the challenging chutes and knee deep powder, not to mention the great Nordic centre, but Summer here is just as much fun. First off, this isn't Banff or Jasper, it's a quiet resort with people hiking, mountain biking, and just generally enjoying the Summer. We stayed at the same place we do during... More

The resort relatively new and is still 'settling down' although there were actual building works during our stay, areas looked newly finished. The resort is mainly aimed at skiers so the summer months are quite retreats or mountain biking. Due to this, there was a lack of atmosphere but as our stay was over Canada day there were celebrations within... More
