Mountain Biking Season opens at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

The summer season has arrived at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.  Mountain activities are coming to life as the final snow from the epic winter is quickly transforming into the lush greens and long warm days of summer.  The resort is now open seven days a week with the Golden Eagle Express Gondola providing access to sightseeing, mountain biking and dining at the award winning Eagle’s Eye Restaurant.

“The Kicking Horse Grizzly Bear Refuge is temporarily closed with an anticipated opening in late July.  Visitors to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort can take advantage of interpretive Grizzly Bear Refuge talks taking place on a daily basis at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 2:00pm in the plaza yurt,” states Steve Paccagnan, President and CEO of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. “Each session will inform visitors about the Grizzly Bear program and provide educational information on how a Grizzly Bear lives and interacts in the environment.”

Trail conditions in the Kicking Horse Bike Park are presently spectacular.  The trail network from the top of Blaster to the plaza is open and ready for riding.  Along with daily Gondola operations, the Catamount Chair will be providing access to the lower bike park and novice trails from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting July 1.  Extended Play is also offered on Friday evenings until September 2 with the last ride up the gondola at 7:45 p.m.

The upper portion of the CPR Ridge hiking trail is now open to explore.  The trail provides stunning views of the Rockies, Purcell range, and Columbia Valley.  The remaining hiking network is drying up quickly and anticipated to open in the middle of July.

The award winning Eagle’s Eye Restaurant is open daily for lunch and providing dinner service on select weekends, including the return of the Summer Dinner Concert Series featuring three signature dinners on Canada Day (July 1), August 12 and September 2. Dinner reservations are required.
