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.

This is one awesome ski hill. The snow is terrific, the bowls are north facing and preserve the snow, especially up top. The Gondola protects the skiers from the elements and allows for 4,000 vertical feet each lap. 95% of the time the resort is...More

Skied with four friends Apr.10, 2018. My first time at Kicking Horse. Big mountain but mostly Black runs. Well maintained but a hour away at Lake Louise the skiing is 10/10. I would not return. Sorry

The mountain is very picturesque and the runs are super steep. This is not really great for beginners. But there is a gondola that takes you to the very top and a nice restaurant. So if you don't ski well, you can at least enjoy...More

The two extremes of ski levels may appreciate this hill more than those in the middle. The bowls and steeps are amazing here and the beginner chair at the bottom will provide enough to interest the beginners. The blue skiers however end up doing a...More

This resort is pretty great, it was my first time going and I cannot wait to go back. The gondola is fairly quick compared to other mountains (like sunshine). The downside is the lack of high speed chairs. Some of those rides feel SUPER slow....More

We had 3 days here and really enjoyed the whole experience. The lift staff were very friendly and the resort appealed to locals more so than tourists from overseas. None of the crowds and stress of French resorts. The snow was good and piste conditions...More

We’ve been to a lot of resorts and this one ranks right up there. Could do with a new lift or two however!

If you're an expert skier and appreciate good food, Kicking Horse may be your paradise. About 75% of the runs are Black Diamond or Double Black Diamond (Difficult to Very Difficult) and crowds are not huge. It's one of the few ski resorts within reach...More

Best ski area in the Rockies - but don't tell anyone!!! Crowds are at a minimum, the views are spectacular and you don't have to go far to thrill yourself.
