We go from one extreme to another. Yesterday it was about 26c and not a cloud in the sky and today it is snowing. Yes we can still get snow. Photo to the left is from today at the top of the mountain. The resort opened for a sneak preview last weekend and I did go to the top to check it out. The video below tells the story. We have a crap load of snow in the higher elevation and it looks like it will be awhile before it melts. It really hurt not to be able to ski it. Kicking Horse and Vagabond Lodge opens for the summer starting May 27th(this Saturday) until October 1 daily. The resort has a great deal until Friday for a summer pass which includes the grizzly bear refuge. You can purchase the passes on-line through this website. http://kickinghorseresort.com/purchase/summer-season-passes/
It basically is the same price as one ride. It looks like the higher elevation hiking will have to wait for awhile.
Looking forward to a great summer of hiking.
Ken along with his wife Lori are the owners and operators of Vagabond Lodge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
