Kicking Horse Ski Holidays


With perfect powder, heaps of vertical and lots of black diamond runs, this is big mountain skiing at its best.
  • Off the Beaten Track
  • Powder

Ski holidays in Kicking Horse put even the most seasoned skiers in our office to the test. With more black and double black diamond runs than any other grades, advanced skiers come here for the inbound chutes, ridges and bowls. Kicking Horse is also famous for its light powder and fantastic former heli-ski-only terrain - we’d definitely recommend a guide.

Intermediates can take it easier on the cruisers, and beginners have gentle terrain near the mountain base. To get even more from the area it’s best to hire a car, as both Revelstoke and Lake Louise are within easy driving distance. And to combine several ski resorts in one trip, take a look at our Powder Ski Safari.

Kicking Horse has a small village base with slope-side restaurants but, for the best on-mountain dining experience, the panoramic Eagle’s Eye Restaurant at the summit is absolutely stunning. For more eateries and après options, it’s a few miles’ drive to the authentic mining town of Golden.

"'The Horse' is a must for the die-hard skiers & boarders, with an incredible vertical drop of 1,250 meters and terrain that will test you to the limit. To really get the most from Kicking Horse I’d definitely recommend spending a day with a Big Mountain Centre guide."
