Surrounded by six national parks, Kicking Horse Mountain has one of the longest vertical in Canada. Tucked among some of the highest peaks of the Rockies, this resort is all about big mountain skiing.
Long runs and deep powder are what Kicking Horse is all about. It’s home to one of Canada’s longest verticalS at 1,260 m (4,133 ft), which earned it a spot on Ski Canada's Magazine list of the Top 5 Biggest Verticals (West) in 2009. Advanced skiers find lots of challenges here, but there’s plenty for beginners too, including a centrally located Learning Centre. A state-of-the-art lift system will have you at trail top in no time and with nearly 130 runs there’s room for everyone.
More thrills? The surrounding heli-skiing terrain is almost limitless. With an impressive ski-in/ski-out village, Kicking Horse rocks après too, with fine dining and cosy pubs plus tubing, skating and meeting the resident wolves at the nearby Wolf Centre. Savour Canada’s most elevated dining experience: the Eagle’s Eye Restaurant, with spectacular views from a lofty 2,350 m (7,710 ft).
