They call Kicking Horse Mountain Resort the ‘Champagne Powder Capital of Canada’ and it’s all that – and so much more! With a top elevation of 8,218ft featuring an average of 24ft of snow and diverse terrain that caters to all ability levels, Kicking Horse has everything from steep alpine chutes to wide open cruising green runs to make this mountain a family favourite destination, just 3 hours west of Calgary, Alberta.
Kicking Horse’s high altitude is home to five glorious alpine bowls, over 85 chutes and breathtaking ridge lines that provide skiers and riders plenty of adrenaline-pumping laps. Terrain is easily accessible by climbing aboard the high-speed, eight-passenger Golden Eagle Express Gondola at the base of the resort and easing you into its captivating environment. Kicking Horse is home to the fifth highest verti-cal in North America and over 3,400 acres of skiable terrain. The mountain is full of panoramic summit scenery and the 4 surrounding national parks.
The winter season is complete with a tubing park, skating rink and numerous restaurants, retailers and activities – plus, where else can you enjoy dining at the top of the world? Eagle’s Eye Restaurant (at the top of the Gondola) is Canada’s highest elevated restaurant and even offers rooms to stay over-night, with access to the most epic first tracks imaginable.
