Kicking Horse is known for it's steep chutes. There are a lot of them. Even after being here for 10 years, there are a number of them, I have never skied. The main reason is, you can get in trouble if you don't know where you are going. There are 2 that come off the top of Terminator(20 minute climb) called "Truth" and "Dare." You look at them every time you go up the gondola. I had mentioned the fact I had never skied them to a friend Ken Schroeder a few days ago. Ken is a former Park's Canada Warden and a great skier and knows all the chutes intimately. He gave me a call in the morning and asked me if I wanted to tackle "Truth." Before I could back-out, my "out loud voice" said yes.
Here is my video of my run down "Truth" Pretty amazing.
