Kickinghorse is amazing

Posted

Pros: lots of powder good trees good bowl and chutes

Cons: barely a terrain park if ur into that stuff and only one gondola and three chairs not high speed

Kicking horse is by far my favorite mountain i have skied they get lots of snow and it doesn't get rocky at the bottom like revelstoke short lift lines usually (since it's 3 hours away from calgary) awesome trees the new superbowl is steep and almost always has fresh snow since you have to make a small hike to it lots of access from just one gondola though and to get to the fourth bowl you just take a short chair up the only bad things i can think of is the terrain park and nightlife.

Pros: Steeps, vert

Cons: Weekend gondola line, few easy options from the top, town of Golden isn't exactly charming

Kicking Horse is a great choice for stronger skiers. The top of the mountain has dozens of steep chutes dropping off 3 different ridge lines. Terrain compares nicely to Jackson hole and Snowbird. On average, it is steeper than Fernie or the Banff areas. The bottom half of the mountain is less interesting, but there are some decent glades. Increased snowmaking and better grooming has made low snow years more comfortable. One issue with KH is its location. It isn't easy to get to, and the town of Golden isn't much of a tourist destination.
