Kicking Horse

Kicking Horse is located in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountain powder country.  The Golden Eagle Express Gondola comfortably whisks skiers and riders the full 1260 metres vertical in just 12 minutes.  Once at the top you will find over 2800 acres of superbly varied terrain that will raise the excitement level for even the most accomplished skiers and riders.  Pick your way down a steep chute and then head to the bumps or fly down the smooth groomers.  The base area offers family condominiums, boutique mountain lodges and award winning restaurants to provide après-ski fun.
