Kicking Horse Mountain Resort sits at the confluence of the Kicking Horse and Columbia rivers, surrounded by both the Purcell and Canadian Rocky Mountain ranges. As the dramatic surrounding landscapes change with the seasons, so does this quaint alpine village; it’s hard to imagine a bigger difference between winter and summer. One of the only constants in the area is the Eagles Eye Restaurant, which is known as Canada’s highest dining experience for its location at the top of the Kicking Horse Gondola.
In the winter, with its legendary snow and steep terrain, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is one of Canada’s most popular ski areas. The skiing stops when summer arrives, but gravity sports don’t miss a beat. The resort is home to an extensive lift-accessed downhill mountain bike park with adrenaline-fueled fun for cyclists of any skill level. The gondola also remains open after winter and carries hikers above the trees for some truly memorable views. Lower down on the mountain is Grizzly Bear Boo’s 22-acre home, where visitors can take an interpretive tour to learn more about this spectacular species.
Day trips activities near the resort include golfing on the edge of the Columbia River, paragliding from the surrounding peaks and soaking in the nearby Radium Hot Springs.
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is located near Golden, British Columbia, 93 miles (150 km) west of Banff, Alberta, along the TransCanada Highway. Kicking Horse Pass is a high mountain road; snow and ice can be encountered at any time throughout the year.
Address: 1500 Kicking Horse Trail, Golden, Alberta, Canada
