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.

Dialing up for this coming winter, Kicking Horse’s new terrain includes the legendary Ozone South face (made famous as the competition venue for last year’s Freeride World Tour event) and Middle Ridge, offering fantastic turns into both Feuz Bowl and the adjacent Rudi’s Bowl. This is Canada’s biggest expansion in skiable terrain—a loud and large 660 acres offering challenges to all skiers and riders.

  • Oct 15, 2019: “Kicking Horse staff took excellent care of our yoga retreat group! We scheduled the Via Ferrata for end of September and due to ice up top had to move it one day later. The change was communicated perfectly and they gave us gondola passes instead to keep everyone busy! Everyone loved walking around up top, visiting Boo, and exploring the shops at the base. The following day the Via Ferrata was a go! It was an awesome experience and everyone wants to come back and try the 4-hour climb! Guides were great at keeping spirits high in the cold and were attentive about keeping everyone safe.” 0
