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.

This stop was part of a day tour from Banff. I thought the views in Banff were beautiful - well the views at the top of the gondola at Kicking Horse are just jaw dropping. The visit to see Boo the grizzly is also a must. The guides are so informative and Boo was particularly active that day and hung... More

Four adults and two children (1 and 3) shared a self contained loft style room which worked ok with the requested crib. Disappointed with finding most things closed including the chair lift and gondola at 4pm then finding nowhere to get coffee or even a muffin within the resort at 7.30 am. Coffee maker in room was broken. Views were... More

We rented a house as a group in the area of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. The house was perfect for the seven of us and had everything you could need while traveling. We bought a seasons pass before our trip to ride the gondola and chair lift and made full use of it visiting Boo at the Grizzly Bear Refuge... More

There are two Gondolas, one to visit the bear refuge and another to the top of the mountain. Both are a must! We spent a long time at the bear refuge watching the bear roam around, swim in a pond and playing with fencing. At the top of the mountain there are excellent views and a great restaurant. Ask for...

This is Canada's best kept secret. The view from the top is breath-taking. We had lunch in the restaurant and it was wonderful -- better than dinner on the Eifel Tower! Every Canadian should see this place!

In spite of the weather we continued with our plans to have lunch at the Eagle Eye restaurant. Up the gondola we went in the storm. The location of the restaurant is incredible..service was good and our lunch was not great but not bad. Unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy the amazing views that this location has to offer. Based... More

Great challenging trails for out teenage son to master whilst we visited the grizzly bear. Not too busy in the summer and relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

After visiting Jasper and Banff, Kicking Horse Mountain was unexpected! Although a different mountain range, this was definitely the highlight of our road trip.

I went up last week to see Boo the bear and hike some of the trails. It was fantastic! The Bear Lady did an excellent presentation on Boo and I learned so much. I then took the Gondola up to the top and hiked Terminator, T2 and the Bowl. It really was stunning. The path up to Terminator and T2... More
