Kicking Horse

Kicking Horse has attracted rave reviews after just ten seasons for its awesome vertical, deep powder and spectacular terrain mix. The Calgary Herald called it “the best skiing in the world – no kidding”. With an express gondola accessing most of the 4100 ft (1260m) vertical, you’re bound to ski and ride an impressive feast of vertical comparable to only that of heli-skiing. The on mountain village is growing steadily and the all round experience keeps getting better year after year.

  • Unbeatable ski-in/ski-out lodging
  • Canada’s most elevated dining experience, Eagle’s Eye
  • Ski Kicking Horse before the crowds discover this hidden secret.
