Live music to entertain the après ski crowd at Kicking Horse

The après ski scene at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has undergone a bit of a facelift this year, and Whitetooth Grill is at the forefront.

The après ski scene at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has undergone a bit of a facelift this year, and Whitetooth Grill inside the day lodge is at the forefront.

Every week (typically a Saturday) guests who are enjoying a drink and a snack after a long day on the slopes will be treated to live music inside the cozy timber framed lodge. The concert series features a mixture of local and outside talent, and has showcased the stylings of Pablo Euphoria, The Parson Jazz Cooperative and The Gibson Block thus far, among others.

The series was spearheaded by resort Food & Beverage Manager Brian Siff.

“We really want to just give people a place where they can come and enjoy music at the end of the day,” he said.

“We wanted to create a place that’s family friendly.”

The early feedback has been very positive, although Siff would like to see larger crowds come out as the season moves forward.

“Unfortunately I don’t think a lot of people have known about it…the people that have been here have been pretty thrilled,” Siff said.

“Hopefully it’ll just grow…I hope to fill up the whole building.”

Upcoming performers include the John Jenkins Duo, Mindil Beach, Tony Bell and Shred Kelly, with weekly shows continuing until the end of the ski season.

Siff, a passionate fan of music himself, set up a lineup that includes a variety of different musical styles and genres.

A few performances will take place on Friday or Sunday when other events (such as weddings) are occupying the lodge on Saturday.

Siff hopes the live music will improve the atmosphere inside the lodge, where in years past crowds would thin out as soon as the clock struck 3 p.m. Whitetooth Grill has also improved on the food and beverage side of things, and offerings will include an expanded menu and happy hour specials during the shows.

There are still a few openings for artists who want to be featured in one of Whitetooth Grill’s concerts. Interested performers can contact Siff at bsiff@kickinghorseresort.com.
