Overview

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.

A great place to ski for an advanced-intermediate skiier. Not a great place for beginners though there is some more manageable terrain at the lower mountain. The views from the peak are breathtaking and the conditions are perfect. Good mix of chutes, trees and bumps...More

I love KH - whatever snow conditions it doesn’t disappoint. It has steeps shoots bowls and never ending bumps. If you are not at least strong intermediate skier don’t come - you will not enjoy the best KH has to offer. Steep runs are relatively...More

One of the best places in Canada for back country type skiing and great bowls to drop into. The lift system takes you around really easy and the terrain is demanding if you want. Great snow depth and tempteture perfect most or the time.

Could use a better lift system, great on power days, hit all the bowls you want with no limits. The lodging needs improvement.

Great area. Everyone was friendly and helpful - especially our guide, Gary. He showed us a variety of tree runs, steep chutes and fun groomers. We will be back.

While other resorts are great, kicking horse is the best because it's never busy, it has great facilities and the terrain is unreal! But best of all, it has the softest snow that constantly dumps down throughout the season. Not a good place for inexperienced...More

Got out to Kicking Horse for the first time and enjoyed it. It was snowing lots all weekend but wasn’t too cold. The line for the gondola was long and moved slow so that was a bit of a bummer but all in all, it’s...More

We were just out on a trip out west, visiting a few resorts and Kicking Horse stood out with amazing and challenging terrain right off the lift. Especially loved dropping into headwall (Very short hike) but wish their was another lift option so we wouldn't...More

I agree. I don't know how busy it will be but as you know your plans it's better to get it booked in. We had to make a reservation and the mountain itself wasn't that busy when we went.
