KICKING HORSE MOUNTAIN RESORT

Kicking Horse is known for some of the most interesting and technical terrain on the Powder Highway, but if you’re a novice snowboarder or skier, that shouldn’t scare you from earning your chops on the slopes.  A few starter runs on the Jellybean and Pony training hills are the perfect way to get things started

If you live in Calgary, you’re actually pretty lucky to!  Being able to live in a beautiful urban area surrounded by gorgeous mountains is certainly something to be thankful for.  On top of the views, being so close to seemingly endless outdoor adventure and activities are an accolade many cities don’t have to brag about. 

Slowly and gracefully we take the final steps to the summit Terminator Ridge. We release our carabiners from the cable guide we’ve been following for the last three hours and soak in the moment. The fresh breeze atop Terminator Ridge rushes through our hair, the 360-degree view encompassed our vision with stunning peaks and a

We are very excited to announce our Summer Season opening on June 26, 2020.  After an abrupt end to our winter season and your riding pleasure, we at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort look forward to welcoming you back to the mountain.  But first I would like to explain where we are as

Dear Guests, Further to our March 15th decision to suspend Ski Area Operations, after careful consideration of the quickly changing circumstances around Coronavirus (COVID-19), Resorts of the Canadian Rockies has made a decision to suspend ski resort operations for the remainder of the 2019/20 ski season at our Western Canadian Resorts, including Nakiska Ski Area,

“3, 2, 1 dropping.” “Nope, just kidding, I’m not ready yet,” I slowly exhaled sizing up the drop “Are you sure I can do this? It looks so much bigger from up here!” and so went two days of chatter directed toward our ever-patient instructor at the Rippin’ Betties Freeride Camp. I had never taken

Preventing in-bound avalanches

Keeping a ski resort free of inbound avalanches is all about prevention It’s early. As in, the sun hasn’t even thought about rising for the day. But if there was any snowfall last night, the safety team at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is already at the office deciding what to do. Their office? All 3400

Don’t stare at the Kicking Horse trail map for too long. The diamond glare might hurt your eyes as in 39 black diamonds to go with 60, yes 6-0, double-black runs. It’s no surprise the very same topography that defines this mountain provides what most consider the best backcountry fodder in the world. There’s really

“You’re taking your kids to Kicking Horse to bike? That’s an aggressive hill…” Those words rang in my ears as we headed west to Golden for a family trip to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. The kids, ages 1, 5, and 7 were buzzing with excitement. The parents were buzzing too – but with nerves. Our

Nothing beats a cold shower, sipping a well-earned beer in a hot tub and then crawling into a cloud like bed with the smell of fresh mountain air after a day of hiking. While not to under play the epiceness of the mountains, there’s something to be said about being able to retreat to comfort

There’s no convincing needed when it comes to visiting Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. It sells itself with its diverse terrain selection, impressive annual snowfall and stunning location – the only question is when to experience it all. In reality there’s no bad time to visit Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, its alpine peaks and deep snowpack

POWDER MATT

One year, while his friends were busy getting jobs and settling down, a young ‘Powder’ Matt Mosteller spent 63 days living in his car so he could ski every day. Now, 20 years later, Powder Matt has settled down a bit, but he’s still seeking outdoor adventure and his stories can be seen regularly in the Calgary Herald, Vancouver Sun, Explore Magazine and many others. His first book, described by The Calgary Herald as “a handbook for living life to the fullest,” The Adventurer’s Guide to Living a Happy Life offers 63 daily meditations to help you broaden your horizons and achieve the ‘goosebump’ moments in life (sleeping in the car is optional). Powder Matt is a crusader, constantly trying to find ways to fight childhood obesity, and getting people ‘outside’. Follow Powder Matt and his adventures through life on his blog.
