Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

The skiing was great as the hill had a good base of snow!
You must check out " Stairway to Heaven ".
You also need to check out the restaurant at the top of the mountain.Worth the money.

the season was a little odd in Alberta as sunshine and lake Louise were too icy, so we spent a couple hours in the car from banff to get to kicking horse. the mountain felt like it had double the snow and the softest powder in some of the back country. the drops are awesome and steep. the only downside was some ice towards the bottom but it allowed for a good show to people waiting in line to get back up there.
thanks

We were at Banff first, skiing at Lake Louise and Sunshinewhich were both great but every time we mentioned Kicking Horse other skiers looked nervous and said ' it's steep'. As an intermediate who lacks confidence i can say that a good instructor along with the wide and deep snow covered slopes make skiing at kicking Horse more than just a possibility, it is a pleasure.

Just returned from 1 week at KHMR and had a fantastic trip. My 2 boys 11 and 13 had a great time, starting out as novices the first few days and skiing black diamonds and the great bowls by the 3rd day. I was a little worried before I arrived that the terain was going to be too dificult for my sons as they had only skied about 5 times but ther was lots of blue and green terrain to practice on before they built their confidence and progressed to the black diamond runs. Very little traffic and the wait lines were minimal. If you are looking for challanging terain this is the place but i was suprised to find there was lots of easier runs available for all skillevels.

Great skiing and beautiful resort. Eagle's eye restraint is the place for Sunday brunch. Also a nice place to visit in the summer.
