Resort gets ready for summer fun

The Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is preparing for a busy summer season with their Sneak a Peak Weekend.

If you’re itching to get back up to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort after the shoulder season, you’ll have your chance with their Sneak a Peak Weekend on June 23 and 24.

“We’re going to have a preview weekend on June 23 and 24, and then our regular operations will begin on June 29,” said Matt Mosteller, VP of marketing and sales for Resorts of the Canadian Rockies.

“We’re really excited about it. It’s going to be a great summer.”

Take a ride to the top of the mountain in the gondola and take in some of the breathtaking views, and exhilarating hiking trails. And don’t forget to take a peek at Boo. Golden’s favourite grizzly bear has had a very restful winter and is ready to go. He slept for five months straight.

Or just have lunch at the Eagle’s Eye Restaurant, which will be open for lunch services seven days a week until 4 p.m.

The mountain bikers will be out in full force, enjoying some of the hard core terrain that Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is known for.

And if you’re not planning on making it up for Sneak a Peak Weekend, be sure to take a drive up the following weekend for their Canada Day celebrations.

There will be some family fun with the first edition of the Kids Olympic Games, and surprises and animation all day long. They will also be celebrating Canada’s birthday with a cake cutting at the Eagle’s Eye.
