Ski Holidays in Kicking Horse

The Best of Kicking Horse

1. 30ft of snow annually and some jaw dropping steeps. This is an adventure seekers heaven!
2. A high speed gondola takes you from the base to the top of resort opening up the vast terrain of steep ridges and deep bowls, as well as countless off piste opportunities.
3. A compact, mostly ski-in/ski-out resort village right at the foot of the slopes means you’ll never be far from the apres or the lifts
This truly is an advanced skiers dream resort.
