Amazing terrain, great snow
Only one gondola

Full review

Kicking horse has the best, most challenging terrain in eastern British Columbia /Alberta area. Steep chutes that holds powder, drop ins, bowls, glades-awesome... Kicking horse limitation, one gondola, is also the best part. Yes, you need to hike to get to a lot of cool terrain (terminator one and two, Rudy's), so you can't do as many runs in one day as other places. And the top of the hill has the more interesting skiing vs the bottom. So long traverses... However, the fact that there is only gondola and you need to hike, means the good lines get skied less and the snow lasts longer and there are fewer people! So... I think it's awesome. Also golden is full of nice people and it's less expensive than golden because it's not fancy. Come here for the skiing and you will be happy. Beginner / low intermediate-not recommended! Even the blues here would be black at other mountains. Much better to go to Revelstoke or louise or sunshine
