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.

  • Sep 12, 2019: “We bought a ticket just before 3pm - from the ticket office. Headed straight to the gondola. They were busy chatting. Eventually saw us, came over and the lady running it barks ‘I’ve done my last upload!’. The last upload is at 3pm apparently. We go back and forth and I say it’s not yet 3. ‘It is now!’. Which it was by the time she’d argued the toss. Maybe running a tourist attraction like a parking warden isn’t such a good idea. Avoid. ” 0
  • Sep 8, 2019: “If you pass by Canadian highway 1, you should've not passed this. I was surprised at that it was not crowded like lake Louise or Japser skytram... If you get to the eagle's eye, the scene reaches to your eyes will make your jaw drop! Though there are lots of pictures of the scene, your eyes are matchless. And don't miss the grizzly bear's refuge. ” 1
