Kicking Horse Mountain Resort near Golden, British Columbia is not just a winter destination. In summer you can take the scenic gondola up to the top and hike one or more of seven trails. Or sign up to do one of the three Via Ferrata’s they offer. And then there’s the mountain bike park where as they say the wahoo factor is amplified by multiple berms, jumps, wooden features (Stickrock has to been ridden to be believed), rock slabs (look directly below the gondola to see the longest) and plenty of good ol’ white-knuckle singletrack.
Let these photos whet your appetite for a summer adventure at Kicking Horse.
The Kicking Horse Via Ferrata
Need an adrenaline rush? Called the most exhilarating Via Ferrata in western Canada – and that’s saying something – tackle the north face of Terminator Peak. There are three lengths to choose from along with three levels of exposure. You also get a chance to see Boo – the orphaned grizzly bear at the Grizzly Bear Refuge.
The Mountain Bike Park at Kicking Horse
There are a host of impressive statistics to the mountain bike park at Kicking Horse. Consider this: there are over 50 kilometres of trails, 32 runs, over 120 jumps and a vertical drop of 3,700 feet. Trails are labeled just like ski runs – easy, moderate, difficult and very difficult. With so much choice your body will likely tire out before the day is over.
