“Amazing Ski Hill”

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

Certificate of Excellence

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.

“Amazing Ski Hill”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Best hill in canada. Best terrain! I wanna live there. Snow is awesome. Mostly, it's nice to have a hill with terrain that can challenge. Needs a couple more lifts. The bottleneck at the gondola can be rough.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

What a beautiful place to enjoy the Christmas season with your family like myself, and my three adult children did in December 2011. It ended in a tragic accident when my son came down on the bunny hill in a tube and hit a post, and died instantly. Then of course we read about what wasn't the truth in the newspaper. That post was not covered with any protection and had no reason to be there. I just want to say to this day almost two years later I have NOT had a single word of condolence, or contact from anyone at Kicking Horse. It is so sad and uncaring for the resort and the corporation not to acknowledge the death of our son. I certainly hope Kicking Horse has now done everything to check out the safety of their resort.

“Great”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Something for Everyone, Birds of Prey show was great this summer, boys went kids downhill biking, bungy trampoline at base, ladies went hiking, and lunch for everyone at the top or the base. I recommend lunch at the base, I think it was called Peaks, service and food was good.

“Steep and well maintained”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I only ride this hill in the summer but for downhill biking it is awesome. All the features are very well thought out and maintained. The trails are well kept and if you are looking for steep challenging runs Kicking Horse has everything you want. They don't have all the terrain Whistler offers but what they have is second to none.

“Great out of the way ski resort”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Went here on a business trip to participate in the Canadian Avalanche and Rescue Dog Association school. I am an avalanche dog handler and came with my dog to Kicking Horse. Spent the week training and learning and enjoyed the facilities and staff, especially the Kicking Horse Ski Patrol. Great guys and gals with loads of experience including backcountry rescue and emergency medicine. Good updated lift facilities and some pretty good snow. Could use a couple more restaurants but the stay was amazing and I learned a lot.
