About Kicking Horse Mountain ResortKicking Horse is a mountain resort, a playground with something for everyone. Our village and homes are solid and simple; our accommodations, cozy and luxurious. We have the highest and one of the best dining experiences in Canada. Nowhere else can you ride a single gondola right to the summit, providing stunning views of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding national parks, as well as easy access to alpine ridges and bowls. These same ridges and bowls keep the snow stashed deeper and longer, which is why we’re the Champagne Powder Capital of Canada™. From steep and gnarly chutes, to fast and fun glades, and even smooth and gentle groomers. The on snow experience at Kicking Horse is exceptional for the whole family. Keep reading and you’ll find more stats and details about this amazing mountain and the facts that set us apart. Come and see for yourself.
