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.

  • Feb 15, 2020: “My husband and I love biking, decided to try biking down the mountain. The rental place is very expensive. But beautiful, high quality bikes. The gondola ride is amazing. Great views, long ride and the top is stunning. The biking trails are exciting but a little advanced for us. You could definitely get injured if not run over by another biker. I wouldn't suggest it for inexperienced ppl. The cafe was very nice great latte. Overall a beautiful area, gondola is worth it and better than Banff or Jasper. Very nice day trip.” 0
  • Feb 12, 2020: “Kicking Horse Mountain Resort can be classified as a tough resort with over half the runs rated as advanced. But there is always an easy way down. Five bowls offer so much terrain. The view from the top is a show stopper. And new this year....New outhouses at the yert! Yes...that's good news! In the summer you can visit the local grizzly bear or ride the gondola to the top for an amazing picnic.” 1
  • Feb 11, 2020: “We really like Kicking Horse and generally only have good things to say about it. We were lucky with snow and some bluebird days, the runs do not disappoint. The only downside was that the gondola seemed very fragile and frequently stopped, this limited our access to the hill which was disappointing.” 2
