Mountain Biking

People don’t come to Kicking Horse Bike Park to ride the same old thing. They come for the differences, and we have plenty. What this means is over 3,700 feet of stupendous variety. The start of it is the view from the alpine launch which is dominated by the three mountain ranges that surround the park, and the wetlands of the Columbia Valley. From there it is all downhill where the wahoo factor is amplified by multiple berms, jumps, wooden features (Stickrock has to been ridden to be believed), rock slabs (look directly below the gondola to see the longest) and plenty of good ol’ white-knuckle singletrack. The only thing missing is crowds, but we suspect you won’t mind that.
