The Secret is Out! Vicky Lavender , Marketing Manager

"Kicking Horse is a must for anyone looking for a challenge. The terrain is epic, with some of the steepest stuff I have ever snowboarded on! There are still plenty of groomers for intermediates however this isn't a resort we'd normally recommend for beginners. Kicking Horse is only 2 hours from Banff, so it's ideal for a twin centre ski holiday."

Kicking Horse currently offers nearly 3,000 acres of pristine terrain and boasts a huge annual snowfall of 30 feet a year - making it the envy of neighbouring resorts.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is now firmly established as a very popular ski holiday destination for Ski Independence guests. The resort infastructure is outstanding, there's a great choice of ski hotels and condos in the village and a modern, efficient lift system accessing the mountain.

The skiing at Kicking Horse truly delivers, especially for strong intermediates and experts with a huge selection of bowls and glades, all at challenging pitches. Skiing at Kicking Horse means bowls, chutes and steep gladed runs and even on-piste some of the pitches will have the adrenalin flowing. Fresh powder is a regular occurance and Kicking Horse truly delivers thrills and spills aplenty.

A stop for lunch at the impressive Eagle's Eye restaurant is a must for those who wish to rest weary limbs, replenish energy reserves and admire the stunning views.
