Zen on Top – Mountain Top Yoga
What’s a better backdrop to relax and recharge than surrounded by Mother Nature. We have 3-4 mountain top yoga sessions during the winter, all are FREE and led by Golden local Jessica Pyper. These are held at the top of the mountain, on the Eagle’s Eye Restaurant Terrace, giving the ultimate environment for your yoga session! P.S – did we mention they’re free?
Introduced near the end of last season, Kicking Horse is proud to now pour its own beer – try the Kicking Horse Ale on tap at Eagle’s Eye Restaurant this winter!
On Mountain Improvements
During the fall we’re working on brush cutting with our winch cat mower to get those runs in tip top shape for winter, as well as replacing the haul rope on the Eagle’s Express Gondola.
