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.

  • Jan 16, 2020: “Great hill with lots of different runs, great little cafe/restaurants. The kids loved the tubing hill and the smaller runs. It was our first time at Kicking horse as we are new to snowboarding, but we can’t wait to come back again! ” 0
  • Jan 13, 2020: “Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is not for the tame at heart. Admittedly, we do not have lots of beginner terrain but if you can ski KHMR including the chutes, White Wall T1/T2, you can ski anything. Currently we have champagne powder, excellent coverage, no crowds and we are no where near as cold as Banff/Lake Louise. We do not generally get the rain at lower elevations that can plague Fernie or Revelstoke. People are extremely friendly, always some slopes groomed and so often Blue bird skies! Summer time offered the Via Ferrata, excellent hiking, downhill biking and the Eagel's Eye restaurant is 360 degrees of wow!” 1
