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 really enjoyed skiing here. In the morning we used the catamout chair and we spent the whole afternoon on the gondola runs. The green runs were just fine for us. We never did any blue. We also did not use the magic carpet area. Everyone was very friendly and the view was amazing. We will return!

My adult kids spent a great day on the slopes with great snow and sunshine! They didn't want to come off the runs too often because there were so many runs to experience!

Kids and myself have fun on the mountains after a problem with tickets purchase. They will sell online tickets 20% cheeper then at the site . I paid 188$ for one day and two children but 2 days on site will be 550$ crazy expensive I will not be back anytime soon.

An uncommercial Canadian ski resort. Expect it to be busy at weekends and on powder days. But brilliant snow and lots of vertical to ski. Back country is good here with all sorts of gems tucked away but accessible with a short hike and still within the ski boundary. You can get here from Banff on the powder express for... More

Kicking horse has some of the best in bound terrain ive ever been on. if you like steep, if you like snow, if you like adrenaline, this is your place. Groomers do a good job as well, so kudos to them. By far our favourite mountain!
