As a beginner to skiing and snowboarding this year, Kicking Horse was very challenging for me; in the best possible way. If you are willing to push yourself and commit to the challenge, the terrain offered here allows you to improve your skills and confidence to exceptional levels quickly.
The level of talent in the people skiing/boarding here is exceptional. And from when I have been hearing, they are not disappointed with the terrain. A full run to the bottom and the hike to T2 is worth every step. I feel like this is the kind of mountain that could mislead you if you only came up for a weekend, there is so much area to explore and the next dump of snow will arrive at some point, and when it does it will blow your mind.
A better lift system to access this terrain would be great, but I also think it would open the door to people who might over-estimate their ability; the hike makes you think twice! Something from the mid-mountain would have been great this year, especially, though.
As for the night life, there are a few options. If you are the type of person that makes your own party, you can have an absolute blast on the mountain. Locals are fantastic, laid back, friendly and really helpful.
As I said, I'm a beginner and I don't have a lot of experience elsewhere. I do know that despite the unfortunate snow conditions this year, lift system and "lack of night life" (as some have put it) I have had a fantastic season and I think I'll have a hard time finding another resort that will compare.
Next year, Whitewall.
