Kicking Horse Resort has some great terrain. The most challenging you will find. A friend who skis here everyday, has a great expression about skiing Kicking Horse. "You have to earn your turn." So true. The other thing about the resort, is the great terrain just outside the area boundary. You don't have to look very far to find more and more runs. One is called Ozone. It involves going to the top of the Stairway to Heaven chairlift and then about a 30 minute hike. It is all out of bounds so you must have all the avalanche gear. Although I know there are those that go skiing backcountry that don't and that is just stupid.
I went with a friend the other day along with a couple from California who he met on the gondola earlier in the day. It was one of those perfect ski days with fresh snow from a few days prior. And because the slopes are north facing it was still nice and soft. Another friend Richard was also there with his drone doing some video work. We managed to get some great footage. Check it out.
Kicking Horse closes for the season on April 12th. We are taking reservations for next season and with the Canadian dollar the lowest it has been for almost a decade it is a great time for coming to Kicking Horse if you are from outside of Canada.
