A Via Ferrata is a new addition to Kicking Horse Resort. It is a secure climbing route with imbedded cables, and steps. I recently had a chance to check it out. Outstanding. This is a video of the 4 hour route. Highly recommended.
A Via Ferrata opened at Kicking Horse on July 1st and I finally got a chance to try it. Outstanding. Lisa, who was our guide took a group of us on the Ascension Route which is the 4 hour route. Via Ferrata is a secured climbing route with cables and ladders and steps embedded in the rock. Lisa said the company who built it, said this was the most difficult challenge they had ever had, and they have built these around the world. The rock kept burning out the bits because of the hardness of the rock. You are always cabled in, from start to finish which is pretty cool. If you are afraid of height, then this is not for you. I just never looked down. Highly recommended.
