Ski Holidays in Kicking Horse, Canada

Steep, deep, powder-filled Canadian gem.

Located above the town of Golden and 90 minutes drive from Lake Louise. 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.

Kicking Horse has serious cred among avid skiers and the area is renowned for its big snowfalls.

The resort itself is on of the newest in British Columbia and has an old town feel in a newly build surroundings. You might be able to throw a snowball from one side to the other, but there is still plenty of fun to be had. The aprés scene offers live music and lively locals, it's the kind of resort where people are more interested in talking up their day on the hill as opposed to seeing how much beer they can drink.

This quaint resort has a good selection of bars and restaurants and the usual choice of ski shops, though the larger town of Golden is only a ten minutes drive down the road. There is ski in/out accommodation in the resort itself, with more to chose from down the mountain.
