The Best of Kicking Horse
Deserted slopes and fine dry powder normally give the perfect holiday, but Kicking Horse goes the extra step with some of the best and steepest terrain in North America. From the gondola, a variety of blue slopes gently wind down the mountain to warm you up before you head to the bowls and ridges on the top side. A twin stay with Revelstoke, the newest and most exciting resort in Canada, will create the perfect holiday.!
The Canadian Rockies are renowned for great snow, but that means it is COLD, so spring is a great choice for good weather and great snow. Heli skiing is also at it's best at the end of the season so grab a bargain in April and explore your adventurous side...
Centered around the base village of ski shops, cafes, restaurants and bars are a collection of ski accommodation. Most are ski-in/ski-out, although you can make a decent saving by opting to stay in apartments that are a mere 2 minute walk from the lifts
Some independent B&B hotels operate in resort, which has a very local 'home from home' feel generally. Hotel accomodation is much of a muchness, and the best options are to plump for a slopside suite from studio to 3 bedrooms in size. The best have balconies, BBQs and private hot tubs in addition to the standard full kitchens, plenty of space and open fireplaces.
Apres in Kicking Horse is limited, but the bars and restaurants that can be found at the hill are good ones. Eagle’s Eye at the top of the gondola is definitely worth a visit, as is Corks. Head to The Local Hero to enjoy a livelier scene with its outdoor deck, fire and music, letting you relax perfectly after a day on the slopes. In near by Golden the Kicking Horse grill is highly rated, along with Golden Taps to party on into the night.
When it comes to heli-skiing, the Trans-Canada Highway is the perfect guide to finding some of the best.
