Kicking Horse Resort, British ColumbiaLive the Adventure....Live the Dream
A place where winter's bounty is like nowhere else on earth with snow so sparkling, light and dry it's been labeled "the champagne of powders."
The face of Kicking Horse and indeed the mountain itself is ideally positioned to accommodate an outstanding ski resort. Northeast facing slopes allow for excellent snow retention.
Mother Nature chips in to provide enough high-level moisture, sun, temperature and super-dry, low-level air to create and preserve Kicking Horse's perfect powder. The quality of this fine, dry Purcell Powder has for years been the closely guarded secret of the region's local skiers.
From adventure travel to a family-oriented vacation, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort will offer something for everyone. Kicking Horse features the second highest vertical face in Canada and an abundance of natural amenities.
The Golden Eagle Express is the vehicle for four-season fun, so it's scheduled to operate year-'round. The gondola features the first level walk-in coaches to be used in Canada.
Located just 14 km from the town of Golden B.C. and the Trans Canada Highway.
