It has been a great start to the month of February here at Kicking Horse. More new snow and the weather is staying nice and crisp. The resort hosted the World Freeride Tour which is a big thing for Golden and area. It is the only stop in North America and in reality there are probably very few resorts in the World which the type of terrain needed for these skiers/boarders. And we have it. They do some pretty crazy stuff. We had one of the mothers of one of the contestants stay with us and she was a basket-case watching her son do his thing. Because the first tour stop was cancelled in Japan they held 2 events here. The first one was in a an area that has never been open to the public and it was pretty wild seeing these kids come down ozone. Rumours have it, it will be open to the public before the season is over.
Son Kori and his wife Elaine spent a couple days here over the weekend and we managed to go for a few runs in the nice powder. One was off the top of T2 and we managed to get a small window of brighter skies late in the day. It made for some really nice colours as you can see in the video.
February is pretty solidly booked here at Vagabond but we have some availability in March which has always been a great month for snow. Give us a call at 250 344 2622 or email email@example.com
Ken along with his wife Lori are the owners and operators of Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
