Kicking Horse?

Simon and I have talked about Kicking Horse a few times, but I haven’t really looked into it that much. To be honest, I was kinda put off by the “freestylers might be a little bored here” (edit) comment in the World Snowboard Guide, so I didn’t give it too much thought, especially as there’re a lot of other resorts to consider…

Simon’s suggestion is to visit Kicking Horse for a day or two, rather than spend a full two weeks there, which is an option if we go to Banff. And so it was that this link made me think about it again today. Lots of snow.

In fact, it was apparently named in the top 10 hot powder spots worldwide, back in 2004, sweet. There’s a useful review of Kicking Horse on the wsg website along with some other details. Although I they hold back some of the resort info back for the guide itself, the wsg website still has a lot of good stuff to look at.

Kicking Horse could make for a great day riding powder and challanging terrain…

    What are you gonna be doing on this side of the pond? I guess I need to read and catch up! Kicking Horse is supposed to be a wonderful spot. While Whistler brings in all the tourism, Kicking Horse is more of a locals spot – at least that’s what I’ve been told. From what I’ve heard and read, it will be worth your time.

    Hey Zaskoda, if you haven’t read back through a few of the posts – I’m planning on riding in Canada for two weeks sometime next season. We just haven’t decided where to go yet…
