Ski Holidays in Kicking Horse, Canada

Steep, deep, powder-filled Canadian gem. Until now a small area with a lone rinky-dink double chair-lift, the resort now boasts six more chair-lifts, a flash eatery, the Eagle Eye, at the gondola top station and more than a smattering of condos and chalets clustered at the base. Spectacular views of the Rocky, Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges will be found at the gondola summit.

The endless selection of expert black runs filter down to wide open green and blue runs below the four main bowls and near to the resort hub. The four main bowls are a powder hounds home from the awesome ridgeline along Terminator Peak and newly accessed steep, deep chutes, in the Super Bowl, to It's A Ten, a perfectly groomed 10 km piste. This resort was formerly only accessed by heli-skiing, so like its local rival, Revelstoke, it truly is a backcountry skiers delight. This is one resort where it really is worth hiring a guide and taking on the incredible, easy accessed, backcountry skiing.
