NileGuide Expert tip:
Don't miss casual dining at the Eagle's Eye Restaurant, perched at the top of the mountain. The gondola ride and spectacular view make the experience all the more unforgettable.
- Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is where advanced and expert skiers find their match. With the fourth longest vertical drop in North America, its steep and at times challenging runs are a magnet for snowboarders, alpine and telemark skiers.
Just the same, there's no shortage of turf for the beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Its champagne powder commands the attention and is what makes Kicking Horse a favourite winter destination.
Located 9 miles/ 14 km outside of Golden, Kicking Horse sits just outside some of the best heliskiing territory that the BC Rockies region has to offer. It also has a well respected cadre of instructors who provide courses in avalanche training, and "big mountain" ski and board technology. If you're looking for a place to learn, or just to challenge your skills, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort likely has the terrain and vertical to do it.
