What's it like at Kicking Horse resort?
Formerly a heli-ski operation, resort construction began in fall of 1999 and Kicking Horse opened its doors on December 8th, 2000. 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!

Visitor Reviews of Kicking Horse
Keith from Canada writes:
Have skied over 70 days at Kicking Horse this season and it's been fantastic. Lots of snow, great coverage and the groomers have been a lot of fun. Usually don't ski groomers but have been using them for rest days. Even with the covid restrictions it's been easy to get well over 20,000' vertical in just over a half day. If you're a beginner, save money and get a Catamount only lift pass. Lots of terrain for a beginner until you're ready to up your game. If you've never been to KH, talk to or take a tour with a Ski Host. It's a great way to learn the mountain quickly.
