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.

Love it

I loved this resort. Quite big and popular, yet not overflooded with people. The lodge is a wonderful place to sleep, just by the slopes.

We all had an awesome time, honestly it is really fun for all levels of experience. Our group had 3 people with varying levels of climbing background and 1-2 people with no experience at all, and everyone loved it. It's physically easy enough that most people should have no problem, but still exciting enough for seasoned climbers, not to mention... More

We had a great day of mountain biking at Kicking Horse Resort. We bought a package which included full-day lift tickets, full suspension/downhill bikes and all of the kit (arm/leg pads and full-face helmet). Riding up on the gondola is a bonus -- for the views and because you don't get cold on the very long ride up. The trails... More

First order of the day was a gondola ride to the top of the world. Here we had a fabulous lunch with magnificent views and great service, good prices and wonderful friends. We watched the mountain bikers go screaming down the trail and marvelled at their bravado. After a look around and a little trail walking, we descended to the... More

We can only comment on our visit to see the rescue bear as this was all we did. We thought we were unlikely to see a wild bear on our holiday, but thought this would be the next best. How wrong we were. This was a fantastic experience in its own right. Our Australian guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic,... More

This is a "must do" if you are visiting Golden. Our guide Lisa was professional, encouraging and informative. It was challenging, exciting and the views were excellent. Do not miss out on this experience!!

Totally recommend the Via Ferrata! My friend and I lucked out and had only us 2 in our group. Jackie, our bubbly guide, led us on a unforgettable adventure starting with the suspension bridge. I know that we are attached to a cable system but man that definitely got my adrenaline up! After that we climbed the vertical side of... More

Excellent Hill! Challenging and exhilarating riding. Wouldn't recommend for beginner to novice riders, more of a intermediate to advanced hill.
