WE LIKE

  • Great terrain for experts and some for adventurous intermediates with bowls and tight chutes everywhere
  • Big vertical served by a fast lift system which opens up the whole mountain all day long
  • Splendid mountain-top restaurant with a green run to finish off with afterwards

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Gondola to the top can get really busy and therefore you have long queues to contend with
  • The lower slopes do not provide much challenge beyond beginner level, ski area not yet big enough to keep your interest
  • There's not a lot of partying off the slopes - modest apres-ski describes it nicely

On the slopes

If you ski Kicking Horse then intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders will get the most out of all the runs. This is a great ski resort in which to learn as it has some excellent beginner terrain. A good percentage of the 106 slopes are intermediate/advanced, with some great long runs - the longest is 10k! The lifts can transport 14,000 people, keeping the lines short provided it's not a busy period or the start of the morning.

When lunchtime comes, be sure to try the Eagle's Eye restaurant, Canada's highest at 2,310m. A great way to undertake your first skiing and snowboarding expedition in the heatr of the Canadian Rockies.
