Kicking Horse

Trail Maps

One of the most challenging ski resort in the world, and home to the fourth highest vertical drop in North America, Kicking Horse is a daredevils dream!

Kicking Horse has terrain for all abilities but is certainly more tailored to the advanced/expert riders (20% beginner, 20% intermediate, 45% advanced, 15% expert). The resort is serviced by mainly by the Golden Eagle Express Gondola, with further lifts to get to other areas but overall the lift infrastructure is still in its infancy. To access a lot of the expert terrain you'll find you'll need to do some hiking or traversing.

Riding the Golden Eagle Express Gondola to the top sees the mountain consist of four bowls, and many chutes and ridges that intertwine and and connect onto the main face. There's a total of 2,800 acres of skiable terrain, with 128 named runs on offer.

For those looking to hit up a terrain park, this resort is not for you. This resort is all about the adrenaline junkies looking for challenging runs, and gnarly backcountry skiing.
