Kicking Horse Mountain Resort hosting free community day

On Sunday June 30, any resident of Golden and Area A can participate in Community Day, and receive a free lift ticket up to the gondola.

If you’re one of the few who have never been to the top of the gondola and seen the spectacular views from the top of the world, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is giving you the opportunity to do it for free this Canada Day weekend.

On Sunday June 30, any resident of Golden and Area A is qualified to participate in Community Day, and receive a free sightseeing lift ticket up to the gondola.

“It is an annual tradition that we have created to provide an opportunity for all in the community to come up and enjoy all the mountain has to offer for summer adventure,” said Matt Mosteller, VP of marketing and sales for Resorts of the Canadian Rockies.

“For some it may be their first time up and may not be aware of all that is offered in summer at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. We also feel it is important to have a day where all in the community can take part.”

All you need is proof of residency, such as a driver’s license, and you are eligible for the free lift ticket.

The Community Day is part of the Summer Kick Off Weekend at Kicking Horse.

The resort is excited to be opening up their biking and hiking trails, and Boo the Bear is also looking forward to a little attention Mosteller said.

“We are really excited about summer and all that is offered for locals and visitors,” he said. “Golden and the area provide just about every summer adventure possible, and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort makes the perfect base camp to enjoy it all from.”
