I spent 4 days here in 08. Amazing terrain, excellent facilities with non-crowded and very nice expansive beginners area at the foot of the mountain. However this mountain is definitely for those who want to test themselves a bit more, with areas aptly named Redemption Ridge and terminator, you get the picture. The town of Golden isn't as pretty as most and the mountain from a distance looks small. However, this perception soon disappears on the mountain when you take the first ride on the lifts and look at the runs on either side of you. There are also fantastic back country opportunities in the area. Will be returning this year and doing a Heli ski trip.

Powder Express! - 22/11/2012

If there was one place I'd love to come back to on a powder day, it would be Kicking Horse. We skied here as a day trip from Banff, on the Powder Express coach tour - just $99 for a day out including transfers & lift pass - happy days! Being able to ski trees, cornices & cliffs all in-bounds is incredible. This used to be heli-ski terrain - so you can only imagine how epic the mountain is. There are runs for intermediates, but advanced skiers will have a lot more fun. Areas such as "Stairway to Heaven" will make your adrenaline pump... If you like steeps, the name is very apt! If you get a chance to go, jump on it before the cat is out the bag and the masses turn up.

Apres Ski: 2/5
