Resort ready to celebrate the new year

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is ready to kick into 2012 with a bang.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has a jam-packed schedule of fun things to do this year for the New Year’s Eve Celebrations.

The evening events will kick off at 7 p.m. with a Torchlight Parade, a Glow Stick Parade. Anyone wanting to participate can register at Guest Services before the main event.

And the fireworks will start at 9 p.m.

Guests can gather in the plaza for the best view.

There will also be several options for a New Year’s dinner up at the hill.

“The Eagle’s Eye is hosting a pretty spectacular traditional vintage New Year’s Eve. It’s inspired by local ingredients, but traditional French method cooking. And we have some outstanding vintage champagnes available,” said Janis Romeskie, food and beverage manager at KHMR. The dinner service will begin at 8 p.m., and there will be some 30s and 40s jazz music playing for guests to enjoy and dance to.

“We are encouraging people to dress up. Obviously it’s not mandatory, but it’s an opportunity when you’re in this environment. It’s going to be a gala,” said Romeskie.

The dinner will be $150, and includes a champagne toast, ice wine martinis, flight champagnes which are offered as palette cleansers, and the five-course meal. You can reserve at 1-866-SKI-KICK or at Guest Services.

“We are also doing a New Year’s Eve family dinner down in the Whitetooth Grill. It has a very approachable family price point, a nice family style pasta meal,” said Romeskie.

“It’s between 5 and 7 p.m., so it’s early for the young ones. And it finishes up just in time for guests to head into the plaza and enjoy the Torchlight parade and the fireworks and all of the other things that we have going on.”

The resort also wanted to keep things early enough that families could get back to Golden for the many events happening in town on New Year’s Eve.
