Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

Tucked among soaring peaks in the Rocky Mountains, Kicking Horse is all about big mountain skiing and champagne powder. Kicking Horse is also home to four alpine bowls and chutes that keep skiers exploring for days. More thrills? The surrounding heli-skiing terrain is seemingly limitless.

With an impressive ski-in/ski-out village, Kicking Horse rocks the après scene too, from cosy pubs to fine dining. Case in point: The Eagle’s Eye Restaurant is Canada’s most elevated dining experience, thanks to its lofty 2,346-metre (7,700-foot) perch.

  • May 29, 2019: “Well worth taking the gondola and then Having lunch on the mountain top. Good menu and service with fantastic views.” 0
  • May 21, 2019: “As one of the few Gondolas that I had not been up in the Rockies, we finally went up here. The views are fantastic from up top. If you are wanting to do a little bit more, when you are up there, you can also do the Via Ferrata which is a guided tour of the mountain top via some hardcore climbing. The views from the top of the Kicking Horse Mountain resort are pretty much 360 degrees. One one side you have the Rocky Mountains with the town of Golden below, and the other side you are looking at the Purcell mountains. There is also a grizzly refuge here, which is part of the package when you purchase a ticket. On the particular day we where there, it was extremely hot, so the grizzly was quite elusive.” 1
  • May 8, 2019: “Brought my son the the IFSA North American Junior Freeride Championships at Kicking Horse. Knew almost nothing about the place when we arrived. April isn't champagne powder season but there was plenty of coverage. The mid-mountain lifts serve good terrain for intermediates and (normal) families. The top of the mountain is seriously steep impressive big mountain skiing. Views forever and the vertical will get your heart pumping. Skied for a week and never ran out of new challenges.” 2
