Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

Skiing & Snowboarding


Kicking Horse offers incredible verticals, deep ‘champagne’ powder and a truly spectacular and unique terrain mix. The fourth highest vertical drop in North America, the raw ruggedness of our mountain, the amazing always-fresh powder, and the sheer beauty of the pristine scenery set Kicking Horse apart as one of the most exceptional ski resorts in British Columbia.
