Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

Discover It Before Everyone Else Does

Kicking Horse is known for its incredible vertical, its deep champagne powder, and a truly unique mix of terrain.  Add to that its natural beauty, heli-ski options, and a great ski-town vibe.  With the fourth highest vertical drop in North America, Kicking Horse has become one of the most exceptional ski resorts in British Columbia.

Resort Overview

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is situated along the Powder Highway in the heart of Canada's Rocky Mountains.  This hidden gem is nestled between the Rocky, Purcell and Columbia Mountain ranges. The Golden Eagle Express Gondola comfortably whisks skiers and riders to terrain that was previously out of reach, except by helicopter. Once there, you will find a vertical drop of 4,133 feet and more than 2,800 acres of varied terrain that will raise the excitement level for anyone. Kicking Horse is the perfect choice for an exclusive experience: small crowds + great skiing + a great variety of après ski choices. Rental vehicle included.

For Kids

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort takes snow school to an entirely new level with the "Horse Play Corral". Spanning over 10 acres, this children and family-specific area features contour grooming, a slow skiing and learning area, and kids play trails that weave in and out of the main runs. The entire area has a wildlife theme that provides hours of fun for kids of all ages. The tubing park and village skating rink are also available as après-ski activities.

Resort Activities

Kicking Horse Activity Guide

Congratulations on selecting Kicking Horse as your Skican vacation destination!  Although Kicking Horse is best known for its terrific skiing/riding, the area offers plenty of additional activities for you to enjoy during your stay.

Dining

At 7,700ft, the Eagle's Eye is Canada's highest elevated restaurant.

Cross Country Skiing:

Just north of the Kicking Horse Village you will find the Dawn Mountain Nordic Centre. The centre features over 30km of groomed trails that wind through the stunning Kicking Horse Wilderness.

Snowmobiling

The beautiful scenery and terrain make Kicking Horse and Golden a natural choice for snowmobilers. Conditions are so fantastic that the Snowriders Choice Awards have named Kicking Horse as one of the best places for powder and scenic terrain.

Wolf Centre

The Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre is located 15km away from the resort. Learn about wolves and their role in a healthy ecosystem through the pack of Grey Wolves that live in a 2 acre enclosure, interacting with each other much like they would in the wild!

Ice Climbing

Kicking Horse and Golden have some of the best Ice Climbing in the world. Areas like Kicking Horse Canyon, Blaeberry River Valley, and Mount Hunter are quickly becoming an Ice Climbing Mecca unlike any other.

Snow Tubing

The Kicking Horse Tube Park is located in the heart of Kicking Horse Plaza and is accessed by the Jelly Bean Surface Lift, which makes this both a convenient and fun activity for the whole family!
