About Kicking Horse
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort (KHMR) is a new ski resort village located 14 km outside of Golden, British Columbia. The resort was named after the nearby Kicking Horse River and Kicking Horse Pass. The resort features the fourth highest vertical drop North America, at 4,133 feet (1,260 m). The majority of the skiable area consists of two large bowls (Crystal Bowl and Bowl Over) that combine about half way down the mountain into a single area, with a fairly gentle ski-out to the lifts at the bottom. In 2002 a new chairlift (Stairway to Heaven) was added to allow access to a third bowl (Feuz Bowl), which generally sees less traffic.
