Nowhere else can you ride a single gondola right to the summit, providing stunning views of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding five national parks, as well as easy access to alpine ridges and bowls. These same ridges and bowls keep the snow stashed deeper and longer, which is why Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is the Champagne Powder Capital of Canada™.
