Our Environment

We live in one of the world’s most incredible and important places. We’re surrounded by three mountain ranges, and our resort bears the name of one of Canada’s Heritage Rivers that sweeps along the toe of our slopes. One of the earth’s most significant wetlands is situated at the bottom of the mountain. The mighty Columbia River winds through the valley below.The reason that thousands visit us and that so many live here, is quite simply, our incredible natural surroundings — our greatest natural asset.Kicking Horse Mountain Resort continues to endeavor to protect and preserve our environment and natural resources. Our intention is to provide a sustainable and much needed venue for the continued enjoyment, pleasure and solace afforded by our natural environment. As a result we are committed to constantly improving our environmental and sustainable practices.

Our practices include erosion control, minimal site disturbance during slope grooming, replacing machines with more efficient engines, and simple things like encouraging our team to carpool. We’re currently researching alternative energy supplies for remote locations, and extensive water conservation methods, and we look forward to providing more information on how we are maintaining our resort. In the meantime we hope you can join us in this incredible natural setting. We’re committed to caring for it, for you.
