About the Mountains near Kicking Horse

The expert skier and confident intermediary will find the terrain most enjoyable with powdery snow high up reached by a eight seater gondola. The lower half of the mountain does have great black runs and moguls on cleared trails through the trees. Intermediates may find the ungroomed slopes too much to handle if recently graduated from the blues and greens. Beginners should look elsewhere.
