As a mountain resort, Kicking Horse is a playground with something for everyone. Nowhere else can you ride a single gondola right to the summit, providing stunning views of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding national parks, together with easy access to alpine ridges and bowls. It’s a sweet setup that sets Kicking Horse apart.
Kicking Horse Village is a small town, but is growing fast due to its attractive skiing conditions. For entertainment after a full-day on the mountain, you can take a 15 minute car or bus ride to Golden, the nearest city. Kicking Horse is also located 3 hours from Calgary, only 90 km west of Banff National Park and a two hours drive from Revelstoke ski resort. It’s all yours for the taking once you become a ski instructor in kicking horse!
