Kicking Horse

Surrounded by towering peaks and six of Canada’s most picturesque National Parks, Kicking Horse is located in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountain powder country.  The Golden Eagle Express Gondola comfortably whisks skiers and riders to terrain that used to be available only to heli-skiers.  Once there, you will find the Rockies highest vertical descent of 1260 metres and over 2800 acres of superbly varied terrain that will raise the excitement level for everyone, from beginners right through to the most accomplished skiers and riders.  Family condominiums, boutique mountain lodges and award winning restaurants provide that après fun you’ve been craving.  Kicking Horse Mountain Resort sets the new standard in ski resort vacations.
