KICKING HORSE - kicking good, terrain!
If you like long, steep epic runs, then Kicking Horse is the ultimate resort for you. The unique terrain offers some of the steepest powder runs you will find anywhere in the world and the views from the summit are truly breath taking.
You can do long powder runs off the gondola or short summit runs off the top chairlift, either way your thighs will be pumping from the terrain at Kicking Horse.
Accommodation is superb, condo style, modern, ski in, ski out, but limited in quantity, so book early.
The Eagles Rest Restaurant at the summit is perfect for lunch and has a room with a chef and butler service, consider booking this for an extra special stay!
Kicking Horse is part of the RCR Pass which is valid at both Kimberley and Fernie so consider combining these resorts for the ultimate ski trip.
