Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Golden

4.3
#1 of 15 in Parks in Golden
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.

  • I was in the September 2017 with a 13-Member German tour group there. We drove refuge only with the cable car to the bears and enjoyed the views of Boo there and listened to the very knowledgeable explanations of GUIDs. Then we went even further to the Summit restaurant and there were a delicious meal which was included in the price of the car rides. Overall a great experience, especially since it during our time in the restaurant even to snow began.

  • Room was very nice. Water in the shower was not very hot though. The resort has great sightseeing opportunities such as the Grizzly bear refuge and the Eagles Eye restaurant. Definitely worth the money to check those out. When I booked it said there was laundry and hot tubs in the room but neither of these are true.
  • Beautiful resort. We took the gondola ride to the grizzly reserve and watched their grizzly playing while we learned about the status of the bears in North America. We also took a ride to the top of the mountain and hiked to one of the mountain peaks. I wanted to eat a meal at the eagles eye restaurant on the mountain peak, but it was extremely busy -- be sure to book a reservation. Plenty of trails to bike down in the summer as well.
  • This is one of the greatest skill hills in the BC/AB Rockies. Amazing terrain selection for all levels. When it snows there are few places that compare. Crowds disperse throughout the hill even if the line for the Gondola is long. One of the best views ever from the top of the mountain. Novice to expert, there is something for everyone here.
  • We did via ferratta, saw boo, and hiked T2. All a fantastic experience and staff was crazy nice and friendly everywhere we encountered them. Our guide Jackie on the ferratta was great. We we're staying in Golden but popped up here two days for some adventure.
  • Nice Gondola ride to the top. Lovely walk down. Great mountain bike trails in the summer.

Where to stay in Golden

For convenience and proximity to local shops, stay at one of the lodges or bed and breakfasts located within the grid-like streets of the town center. If you want a bit more space to enjoy the natural settings, look out of town to nearby Edelweiss, where you'll find a range of inns and lodges just off the Trans-Canada Highway. If skiing is your main game, look west along Kicking Horse Trail, where you can stay at the base of the nearby ski gondolas.
