The 'champaign powder' of Kicking Horse has made it an instant favorite for Western Canada.

NileGuide Expert tip:
In Golden with a rental car you're about 1.5 hours from four of Canada's best ski hills: Kicking Horse, Revelstoke, Lake Louise, and Panorama. Enjoy!
Kicking Horse is famous for its snow. The 1200 meters of vertical height on the ski hill makes it a great location for enjoying long, uninterrupted runs through the powder. It's almost exactly the same distance from Golden to Revelstoke, Lake Louise, and Panorama, making this potentially the place to settle in for an epic ski holiday. Of course, you may decide it's not worth leaving Kicking Horse, though!
