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

Shelagh from Canada writes:

Wow, after a very mediocre season last year Kickie is off to a great start with over 300 cm snowfall already this season! Everybody and their dog was here last weekend for opening day so the line-ups were long (please RCR send us some lifts!), but today was even better pow than last weekend after 22 cm new in last few days, stellar conditions and NO line-ups! El Niño seems about to bless us with another spectacular season and it's barely December! Yeee-haw!
