Formerly a heli-ski operation, resort construction began in fall of 1999 and Kicking Horse opened its doors on December 8th, 2000. Build-out should be reached in 2010. Kicking Horse is the first entirely new resort to be built in Canada in the last 25 years. An 8-passenger state-of-the-art gondola, the Golden Eagle Express, takes skiers from the village to the top of the mountain and a mountain top restaurant called the Eagle's Eye. A lodge is located in the Gondola Plaza providing ski-in-ski-out accommodations for visitors. The skiing at Kicking Horse is, as they say, awesome. Townhouses are available on the mountain. B&Bs, cabins, chalets, hotels, lodges, and motels available nearby. But, it is in the middle of nowhere so don't expect to be in a big town with shops and clubs!

Resorts close to Kicking Horse include: Purcell Mountain Lodge (19 km), Great Canadian Heli-Skiing (36 km), CMH Bobbie-Burns (40 km), Battle Abbey (41 km), Amiskwi Lodge (45 km),

Visitor Reviews of Kicking Horse

DKong from Canada writes:

Kicking Horse is a great hill when they have fresh snow but when they don't it's not really worth the 3 hr drive. And that's their biggest problem! When it snows the hoards from Calgary show up and since they only have one gondola to take you to the top the line ups can easily be 45 min to an hour. Once you're finally at the top you have to ski all the way to the base unless you cycle Stairway to Heaven chair, which gets boring after a few runs and inevitably you'll head into Fuse bowl for some fun, which is great, but now you're forced to ski the cruddy runs to the base and stand in the gondola line up again!

Bottom line is they need chairlifts servicing the top half of the mountain in all the bowls!
