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.

“Big Boys hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

I loved the short lift lines and the helpful lifties.
The Hosts were brilliant too, they are so important. Why dont we have this in Europe?
I didn't like the fact there were places on this hill I just didn't have the balls to to ski down.

“Staff need to up their game”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Great resort with very good on the mountain accommodation. Excellent terrain. The negative that all 5 of our party commented on was that the staff on the lifts in particular were sour. This contrasted dramatically with the 4 other resorts we visited in the area where everyone was really welcoming and positive.

“Great skiing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We love this mountain! Although there are basically only four lifts you can access a vast amount of very varied skiing from steep chutes, blue cruisers, bumpy blacks and steep open faces. No queues at all except perhaps on a new powder day or weekend.

“Best Hill worth the extra Drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

Best hill between Calgary and Revelstoke, way rather drive the pretty extra hour and skip Louise for far better snow, less people and far better runs.

“KH a tough hill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Kicking Horse very challenging, bottom of mountain has good selection of green runs, top is all black and very few intermediate runs. Gondola is a bottle neck with long lines at times. They badly need another lift to get skier to top of mountain.
