Corks features an unparalleled mountain dining experience that has reinvigorated the culinary scene at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. The restaurant has been under new ownership and creative leadership since November 2014 and has quickly created a loyal following of foodie fans. The incredible kitchen team has created a carefully chosen, inspired menu that is as refreshing and memorable as the area's stunning mountain backdrop. Corks has a passion for locally sourced food and wines from British Columbia. Here you can sample all the comfort food classics such as elk, beef and pork all served with a unique Corks twist while sipping on a perfectly paired pour from the Pacific Northwest. Corks Restaurant is conveniently located at Copper Horse Lodge, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort's only boutique hotel. The warmth and character of the lodge spills over into the restaurant and makes you feel as though you have just stepped into one of your closest friend's homes for an evening of great conversation and even greater food. Copper Horse Lodge and Corks Restaurant is the perfect combination for intimate events including weddings, family gatherings and corporate retreats.

Choices for food on this mountain are limited. Corks is standing out from the rest. The only non bar restaurant with a well put together menu. Not as many choices as most of us are used to but all food groups well represented including game. I finished my dinner off with NY cheesecake and it was a very respectable rendition.... More

I have a few non-severe food allergies, and was looking for a good place to eat on my ski trip at Kicking Horse. This restaurant was recommended to me by many people, and it sounded like a great place to eat. When I arrived and looked at the menu, everything was very expensive. I ordered the Ziti, and told the... More

Worth the 20-minute drive up the mountain. The Salmon special which was a delicious mix of familiar and the unexpected. The Brie appetizer was an excellent alternative to a dessert. I would drive up there again for the Brie!

A lil difficult when we tried to book reservations because they were only open from 5pm-10pm. The food overall was pretty good and service was great. Very friendly staff? But not a very intimate setting.

After experiencing the "entertainer" at Peaks in Kicking Horse Village, we were looking for a place for dinner without the drive to Golden. We were pleasantly surprised to find Cork's just up the hill. Excellent food served by awesome staff in a semi-casual atmosphere. we highly recommend free range chicken and the Greens salad. Felix Belczyk has a winner here.

Having arrived late and exhausted from 16 hours of travelling and perilously close to closing time, this restaurant still delivered a yummy meal without hurrying the guests along. That's professional service! Food was pleasing to both eye and pallet.

We had our wedding reception catered by Corks Restaurant and could not have been happier! The food was exquisite, thoughtfully prepared and creative. The chef is incredibly talented, and his dedication to his art showed in every single dish. His handmade semifreddo, cranberry/goatcheese/pistachio salad, and elk sirloin were huge crowd favourites. We were accommodating a variety of dietary needs and... More

I ate here Friday, and wow. The food, and presentation was everything you could ask for. This place is at the base of the mountain, with surrounding views everywhere you look. The wonderful waitress recommended a glass of red wine which paired perfectly with my burger. The produce are high quality and you'll taste the difference. I can't say enough... More
