Attraction details
Owner description: Kicking Horse has attracted rave reviews after just seven seasons for its awesome vertical, deep powder and spectacular terrain mix. With an express gondola accessing over 4100 ft (1260m) of vertical, you’re bound to ski and ride an impressive feat of terrain comparable to only that of heli-skiing. Coupled with summer activities such as mountain biking, wildlife education, and alpine sightseeing, this is a place where the stories are almost too tall to believe.

“The best resort skiing in the west”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

I have been skiing Kicking Horse mountain resort ever since it opened.
We actually moved from the Bow Valley to Golden because of it.
Between the terrain, the snow accumulation, and access to the back country for some ski touring this resort is world class. My favorite for sure. :)

“Amazing Ski Hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

Best hill in canada. Best terrain! I wanna live there. Snow is awesome. Mostly, it's nice to have a hill with terrain that can challenge. Needs a couple more lifts. The bottleneck at the gondola can be rough.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

What a beautiful place to enjoy the Christmas season with your family like myself, and my three adult children did in December 2011. It ended in a tragic accident when my son came down on the bunny hill in a tube and hit a post, and died instantly. Then of course we read about what wasn't the truth in the newspaper. That post was not covered with any protection and had no reason to be there. I just want to say to this day almost two years later I have NOT had a single word of condolence, or contact from anyone at Kicking Horse. It is so sad and uncaring for the resort and the corporation not to acknowledge the death of our son. I certainly hope Kicking Horse has now done everything to check out the safety of their resort.

“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Something for Everyone, Birds of Prey show was great this summer, boys went kids downhill biking, bungy trampoline at base, ladies went hiking, and lunch for everyone at the top or the base. I recommend lunch at the base, I think it was called Peaks, service and food was good.
