Kicking horse is a great uncrowded mountain with terrain to suit everyone. We rented a two bedroom apartment with private hot tub. The apartment itself was spacious and well equipped . Many reviewers mention the lack of on site checkin and staff and it really is a problem. From the time we arrived there were problems with card keys and... More

In 2007. we stayed here for a first time: we stopped on the way to West Coast. We're going back ever since at least once a year. 2 bedroom corner suites are so well equipped that you can feel like you're at home. 2 spacious king size bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom, bath tub as well as shower and...

We rented a 2 bedroom unit for one week in August and it was very nice for a great price. It had granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, luxury faucets, beautiful views and even a private hot-tub on one of our two balconies. We didn't find it to be an issue to check-in at the main lodge, as others seemed to... More

Thank you for your valued comments and feedback from your recent stay at The Palliser Lodge. Being in a central location with multiple National Parks, many lakes and hikes, and being at the base of a mountain makes Kicking Horse an ideal central base location for outdoor adventures. We are glad you had enjoyed the condo and private hot tub.... More

We stayed at this resort to attend a wedding. Our email indicated where to pick up our room key, and we found the building no problem. We had a corner two bedroom suite on the main floor of the Palliser Lodge. Access was great as everything (gondolas) were within a short walk. The room was clean, spacious and more than... More

First off i have to say Kicking horse mountain resort is a newly developed ski resort that is up and coming and so far really great. We attended a wedding at the top of the mountain and it was truly the most incredible views and location for a ceremony. The gondola allowed access for everyone and anyone can enjoy the... More

We stayed at the Kicking Horse Palliser Lodge on July 23, 2013. We noiticed this lodge on the internet, when searching for a place to stay on our trip to BC.

We knew in advance that most (if not all) of the facilities in the Kicking Horse Resort are closed in June. However, it was more difficult to check in than we could have ever imagined. We got to the hotel and there was no one at the reception desk - the area was in total darkness. There was, however, a... More

Excellent spring skiing conditions during easter weekend. Our family spent three nights at palliser and a well appointed two bedroom suite. The place was spotless and the hot was a great bonus. The front desk staff were very polite and helpful. Overall this was a great family experience and will defiantly return next season.
