Overview
More
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 loved it here. Only stayed 2 days but would definitely stay longer next time ! We found it a little hard getting to the resort as we didn't have our own transport. Definitely need your own transport for this resort.

We're grateful to have had you visit! May and early June are particularly great times for sightseeing; big blue skies and warmer temperatures but the surrounding peaks are still capped with snow! Thanks again for visiting, and hopefully we'll see you again soon!

The snow is excellent when conditions are just right, lots of good terrain for intermediate/advanced ski/boarders. If conditions were equal I’d personally head somewhere smaller and with less hype to avoid the ridiculous price hikes in lift tickets and get the same ski experience. KHMR...More
