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.

  • Mar 13, 2019: “Excellent snow. One 6 seater gondola takes you to the top of 4 wide and long bowls. Groomed and mogul runs side by side in some cases” 0
  • Mar 12, 2019: “Kicking Horse is a very good place to ski for people who enjoy the challenges of mountain downhill skiing, or for beginners looking for a beautiful view and shallow slopes. Lots of bowls for experts and lots of easy routes. Anywhere you go, there is an easiest way down, so beginners are not trapped on a side!” 1
  • Mar 3, 2019: “What a great ski resort. Some 1200 m (4,000 feet) drop from top of gondola to bottom. Choose your style hills - fresh snow or groomers. Wow, the choices are increadible. We do 7 to 8 gondies and get more than 10,000 (32,000 feet) vertical meters in a day of resort skiing.” 2
