Whats New at Kicking Horse


Golden, BC – With the first strike of snow, the countdown to another exciting winter has officially begun! Cultivating innovation, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is thrilled to introduce its New Family Zone; a 100 acre sheltered haven featuring gentle cruising runs off an ingenious system re-routing the downhill traffic from Catamount Top towards the mountain base. Before venturing on steeper slopes, upload Catamount Chairlift with the kids to enjoy a safe mid-mountain environment.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has been active this summer with the goal of dazzling our guests; whether they are family cruisers or seeking extreme adventure.

  • Enhancing the resort’s grooming program, a new snow cat track into Terminator will allow wide carving turns and high speed downhill shredding.
  • The Redemption Ridge traverse has been extended to provide comfort and fluidity to those who are looking for untouched chutes and deep powder – from now on traversing will be smoother than ever!
  • Glading is underway on South Redemption, opening unprecedented lines and four new chutes into Crystal Bowl. Kicking Horse Resort now boasts 90 unparalleled inbounds chutes.
  • Lastly, the patch of dense trees at the base of Crystal Bowl has been thinned out enlarging the riding zone leading up to Stairway to Heaven. Skier and borders alike will certainly enjoy this extended playground.

Winter is around the corner! Stay tuned for more updates.
