Description of the Ski Area:The first resort to be built in the Canadian Rockies in the past 25 years opened December 8, 2000. 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.”
Located just 14 km from the town of Golden B.C. and the Trans Canada Highway, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort promises to become one of North America’s premier ski attractions and a year-’round, world-class recreational destination. From adventure travel to a family-oriented vacation, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort will offer something for everyone.
With the second highest vertical face in Canada and an abundance of natural amenities, your first visit to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort will be nothing short of inspiring. In fact, it will be an experience of firsts. Like your first meal at Canada’s loftiest restaurant at 7,777 feet. A ride on the Golden Eagle Express, Canada’s first level walk-in gondola. And the opportunity to make first tracks in heli-skiing terrain, all for the price of a lift ticket.
