Excellent snow. One 6 seater gondola takes you to the top of 4 wide and long bowls. Groomed and mogul runs side by side in some cases

Kicking Horse is a very good place to ski for people who enjoy the challenges of mountain downhill skiing, or for beginners looking for a beautiful view and shallow slopes. Lots of bowls for experts and lots of easy routes. Anywhere you go, there is...More

Really a world class resort with one lift to the top of the hill! Quaint, eccentric, traditional back bowl skiing yes but at a ticket price only seen in the biggest resorts. Do something about it or your reputation will be irreparably damaged. Great skiing...More
