Kicking Horse is known for its incredible vertical, its deep champagne powder, and a good mix of beginner and expert terrain. With the third-highest vertical drop in British Columbia, Kicking Horse has earned a reputation as one of the most exceptional ski resorts in Canada and a great destination for passionate skiers.
Kicking Horse is located just outside the classic ski town of Golden, B.C. on the Powder Highway and close to Banff National Park. The resort offers stunning natural beauty to explore, as well as a wide range of heli-skiing and cat-skiing options. Add to this a great ski-town vibe and you have the perfect recipe for a fantastic ski vacation.
