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.

If you can ski, this is THE place. The terrain here varies from wild to scary but the lower mountain (in season) is family friendly. And a trip here without at least lunch at Eagle's Eye would not be complete. Incerdible slack country skiing too!

Sadly this resort was closed. Unsure why so early in the season. Looks like a great place tho. Would have liked to do a walk but no one about to advise.

With European family in tow, we toured BC, and saw lots of smoke, but no bears. If you are in this predicament, take your visitors here. The day ticket was reasonably priced, the scenery awesome, and Boo the unfortunate Bruin was co-operative. The OZ lift...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.
