Kicking Horse, Canada

Photo of Kicking Horse, Canada

Kicking Horse is near the little town of Golden, which is a resort, but a fairly ordinary one, but there’s a good shuttle to Kicking Horse so most people stay there. There are only a couple of good runs on Kicking Horse and one of the guys I met working recommended I come here, but when I first saw it I thought it look pretty bland, but once you see the good runs it’s worth it, they’re really way better than good. The best runs are along a couple of ridges that finish in nice rounded bowls, I found the best one was the Crystal Bowl, and you can get in to it from the Golden Eagle Express run, you’ll have to ignore the OTT names. Once it opened up to me I loved Kicking Horse, it’s a great place for freeriding and there are lots of fairly exciting cliffs and ridges to drop out of, which the locals will show you if you watch them. This is a treeline resort with lots of marked runs off piste.
