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
PS from Canada writes:
The pictures you post of KickingHorse Resort are not in the boundaries of KickingHorse Resort. So it is very misleading that this is the terrain you'll be skiing if you come to to KHMR. Not so.
