Kicking Horse has an impressive reputation for its challenging terrain. Once only available to a few lucky heli skiers the 1,315m of vertical terrain is now open up to all skiers and boarders ready to take on the relentless vertical terrain, but don’t worry for those less experienced there is still plenty of beginner and intermediate terrain to enjoy. The on-mountain village is growing steadily and the all-round ski holiday experience keeps getting better year after year.
