End of Summer Celebration at KHMR
Join the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort team this Labor Day weekend, in wrapping-up an epic summer in style! To celebrate the closing chapter of our summer season, we are thrilled to announce an exciting variety of activities and animation highlighting the best of what KHMR has offered this summer.
Bring your DH bike up for the last ride of the summer! Check out the Bike Park’s new upgrades & final improvements. Test out the phenomenal trails our Bike Park Crew has been working on completing since last May. Way to go guys! Purchase a biking ticket and enter in a draw to win great prizes including gift certificates, premium ski rentals and winter day tickets! Join the Toonie Bike Race down Easy Rider, a new event-series meant to challenge you and your biking buddies for one last summer rip down the mountain. Registration will take place at Guest Services until 1:30pm on Saturday.
Kicking off the weekend, Red Barn Petting Zoo will be back for a second time in the KHMR plaza on Saturday. If you missed out on it last weekend, Lisa and Wally are back to welcome children and parents to meet our VIP guests, including chicks, bunnies, goats, Captain Jake the alpaca and more! Their extensive knowledge and passion for rare breeds and sustainable farming will be an excitement for everyone!
On Sunday, KHMR presents the first Cyclo Cross Race of the BC/AB season. If you haven’t heard yet, Cyclo Cross racing is wildly popular and quickly gaining momentum across Western Canada. All riders are invited to enter the comp on their MTB and challenge the pros. Crossing through the KHMR village, mud, cobblestones, stairs, ramps and bank corners, this race provides the right mix of competition and fun for an epic day on 2 wheels.
Golden’s famous local Farmer’s Market will also be setup in the KHMR plaza on Sunday. Fresh produce, jam & jellies, delicious & healthy home baking, local pottery, hand-made soaps, crocheted novelties, artwork and more will be on hand, accompanied by some great local entertainment.
Lastly, don’t miss out on the Performance Rental Center and General Store Summer Clearance, including a variety of bike parts and accessories. All our 2012 rental bikes will be on sale, so make sure you are the first to swing by the shop for some hot deals!
Happy fall! Looking forward to next winter’s grand opening!
