Set in the spectacularly beautiful area of Golden, between the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the Columbia Mountain Range, Kicking Horse is an incredible resort, and perfect for those looking for something a little more exclusive and exciting than some of the more popular resorts.
The deep champagne powder snow is epic, and Kicking Horse is especially famed for the immense verticals and terrain mix. The mountain resort really has edge, and what makes it so different from other resorts in the area is the raw ruggedness, and the ridiculously steep, long runs literally from the top to the bottom of the mountain. This resort is perfect for groups of friends, couples and real lovers of great ski and snowboarding looking for something a bit different and perhaps a new challenge.
The mountain resort has a wealth of accommodation options from compact apartments to huge private log cabins with hot tubs out on deck. There are a handful of fantastic bars and restaurants on the mountain to enjoy, and you can always head into the town for a wider variety of dining options.
To encounter breathtaking scenery, take the Golden Eagle Express Gondola up 11, 266 feet up to Eagle's Eye Restaurant - Canada’s most elevated restaurant. It is a truly special dining experience; with snow-covered mountain peaks 360-degress as far as the eye can see. No visit to Kicking Horse is complete without a visit to Eagle’s Eye.
