Trip Planner: Canada / British Columbia / Kootenay Rockies / Golden / Nature / Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
From skiing to mountain biking, horse riding to alpine sightseeing, there's something for everyone at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Enjoy panoramic mountain views and ever-changing flora as you explore the area. A gondola takes you up to the grand mountains as high as 1,260 m (4,100 ft), where you have access to slopes comparable to those used for heli-skiing. As a result, the terrain is better suited for advanced skiers, as the slopes can be quite steep. To visit Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and other attractions in Golden, use our Golden family vacation planner.

Kicking Horse doesn't have much terrain for beginners or intermediates. If you're an advanced or expert skier, you'll love it. It's only four lifts but those lifts serve a huge amount of terrains. The... more »
Such a great day! Smooth gondola ride and even spotted the bear on the way up. Great trails, friendly staff and good lunch! Had the best beers after a great day. Kicking horse did not disappoint! more »
Could ski very well before but definitely improved after 3 weeks on this mountain. Got some great powder and nice groomed runs. Absolutely gorgeous vista which takes your breath away. Would love to ge... more »
Went here for a day of lift riding. Spectacular scenery, good facilities. Bike was poorly set up however, and resulted in a couple of crashes despite stopping into the shop for adjustments, so that was a bit of a let down for how much money I spent on the rental. Trails are fast and rough (not ideal for beginners) and there are enough to spend most of the day riding new runs. Gondola goes right over Boo, the resident grizzly, which is so cool to see.
I love skiing here in the winter. They have some amazing steep chute runs. Not the best place for beginners but they do have some areas for newer folks to the slopes. I would recommend going up the gondola if you are a green type skier. Blue skier should be fine but might find it a bit intimidating. Lots of great difficult runs to push your ability if that's what you are looking for. Really long longs top to bottom as well.
Visited when the summer activities were closed and winter hadn't started. Very nice ski resort, very new and not overwhelmingly big. Nothing was open when I was there, but the place has potential. Via Ferrata was closed... we went to Banff instead.
KHMR is a must do on my list for Golden. As a group of 8 that had never been to the Canadian Rockies, we were tempted to drive all the way to Banff for the Banff Gondola and views. Luckily, we chose the KHMR Gondola and I am SO glad we did. The views are outstanding, lunch at Eagle's Eye restaurant was a blast, and we were even able to fit in a hike while at the top. The Gondola and available packages are not well advertised on the KHMR website, but I highly recommend for those visiting Golden.
Love to ride at K Ho! Its an amazing hill with wicked terrain. In the summer i love to hike and shoot weddings on the mountain. It has a huge variety for shooting!
