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.

We have done quite a bit of climbing on the Via Ferrara routes in the Italian Dolomites, so weren't sure how this route would measure up to the best in the world. We were pleasantly surprised that it does! 465 meters of pure bliss as they say. A nice rope bridge crosses from the ridge-line to the T1 face. The... More

This tour was very informative. The guide is extremely knowledgeable. It's an amazing experience to see a Grizzly bear eatting and playing in his pond. Just be warned you go up on a ski lift and if you have never been on one before it's an experience all on its own!

Just returned from a week-end celebrating our 5 year anniversary at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, where we had our wedding 5 years ago to the day. Both my husband and I were delighted to discover that despite changing ownership, the Resort and staff were just as wonderful this week-end as they were 5 years ago. What a wonderful surprise to...

After reading the other reviews we went on the 10 o'clock Boo the bear tour. They had hidden food in his enclosure and we watched him as he hunted for his breakfast. It is a great way to learn about grizzley bears. The tour guides truly love him. I could have stayed all day. He was in view at least... More

This mountain resort is a beauty. Superb views of two mountain ranges. Quiet and peaceful retreat, yet close enough to the town of Golden.

We first did the chairlift to see Boo the Bear. We then went on the gondola to the Eagle's Eye Restaurant. It started off as a cloudy day and as the restaurant is at 7700ft we were in the clouds for what seemed forever until we finally reached the top (still in the clouds). For lunch at the Eagle's Eye...

Ski trip:This hill is great from beginer to expert skill, not to far from Alberta so worth the drive. Gondola is nice in the cold days

Our visit had one purpose - to view Boo the Grizzly bear at the Refuge. The resort in itself is small, good for a bit of MTB, but the key summer attraction is the bear. Of course there is no guarantee that the bear will come out to play, but he did for us, and the commentary of his carers... More
