KICKING HORSE

Canada, British Columbia

KICKING HORSE

A must for thrill-seeking skiers

Why go there ?
For passionate and advanced skiers
Variety of terrains
Quiet village

Each year, on average, we receive over 7m of some of the lightest, driest and deepest powder snow on the planet. The mountains which surround us and our unique snow pack are the reason that our local area has such a historic mountain culture and why we are surrounded by the greatest concentration of back country lodges and mechanized (cat and heli) ski operations in Canada.

Formerly a heli-ski operation, resort construction began in fall of 1999 and Kicking Horse opened its doors on December 8th, 2000. Build-out should be reached in 2010. Kicking Horse is the first entirely new resort to be built in Canada in the last 25 years. An 8-passenger state-of-the-art gondola, the Golden Eagle Express, takes skiers from the village to the top of the mountain and a mountain top restaurant called the Eagle’s Eye. A lodge is located in the Gondola Plaza providing ski-in-ski-out accommodations for visitors. The skiing at Kicking Horse is, as they say, awesome. Townhouses are available on the mountain. B&Bs, cabins, chalets, hotels, lodges, and motels available nearby. But, it is in the middle of nowhere so don’t expect to be in a big town with shops and clubs!
