Located about 14km outside of Golden, British Columbia, Kicking Horse features one of the longest vertical drops in North America. The ski area is home to large alpine bowls, long steep chutes and short lift lines.

With spectacular scenery and limitless terrain to explore, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is a hidden gem in British Columbia. The snow that falls at Kicking Horse is consistently dry, light and a powder lover’s dream. There is less skier traffic compared to other resorts and lift lines are a rare sight.
