Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

Il Kicking Horse Mountain Resort si trova alla confluenza dei fiumi Kicking Horse e Columbia, circondato dalle catene di Purcell e Canadian Rocky Mountain. Come il drammatico paesaggio circostante cambia con le stagioni, così fa questo pittoresco villaggio alpino; è difficile immaginare una differenza maggiore tra inverno ed estate. Una delle uniche costanti della zona è l'Eagles Eye Restaurant, noto come la più alta esperienza culinaria del Canada per la sua posizione in cima alla Kicking Horse Gondola.

In inverno, con la sua neve leggendaria e il terreno ripido, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort è una delle aree sciistiche più famose del Canada. Lo sci si ferma quando arriva l'estate, ma gli sport gravity non perdono un colpo. Il resort ospita un ampio parco di mountain bike da discesa accessibile tramite ascensore con divertimento adrenalinico per ciclisti di qualsiasi livello. La gondola rimane aperta anche dopo l'inverno e trasporta gli escursionisti sopra gli alberi per alcuni panorami davvero memorabili. Più in basso sulla montagna si trova la casa di 22 acri di Grizzly Bear Boo, dove i visitatori possono fare un tour interpretativo per saperne di più su questa specie spettacolare.

Le attività di gite di un giorno vicino al resort includono il golf sul bordo del fiume Columbia, il parapendio dalle vette circostanti e le immersioni nelle vicine Radium Hot Springs.

The basics

Kicking Horse boasts the fourth highest vertical drop in North America and a unique mix of terrain. You’ll find everything from gentle, beginner-friendly slopes to long cruising downhill runs and extremely steep faces, bowls, and heli-skiing options. In winter, you can also opt for cross-country skiing, tubing, ice skating, snowshoeing, or snowmobile tours.

During the summer months, the gondola remains open delivering visitors to 7,700 feet (2,347 meters) for sightseeing, hiking, and thrilling downhill mountain bike adventures. The resort also has a Via Ferrata climbing route and a disc golf course, but the highlight is the Kicking Horse Grizzly Bear Refuge, where you can meet Boo, the resident grizzly bear.

The Story Behind Boo the Grizzly Bear

Boo and his brother—Cari—were born in the wild, but orphaned in 2002 when their mother was shot by a poacher. The Kicking Horse Grizzly Bear Refuge was designed specifically for the two cubs by the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Sadly, Cari did not survive his first winter, but Boo has lived at the refuge ever since.
