This Labour Day Weekend, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is marking the end of their season with a celebration.

They are thrilled to announce that the closing chapter of their summer season will include a variety of activities and animation highlighting the best of what KHMR has offered this summer.

Bring your downhill bike up for the last ride of the summer, and check out the Bike Park’s new upgrades and final improvements. Test out the phenomenal trails the Bike Park Crew has been working on completing since last May.

The purchase of a biking ticket enters you into a draw to win great prizes including gift certificates, premium ski rentals and winter day tickets.

The weekend is getting kicked off on Saturday Sept. 1 with the Red Barn Petting Zoo from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., back for the second time this season. If you missed it last time, Lisa and Wally will be back to welcome children and parents with chicks, bunnies, goats, Captain Jake the alpaca and more.

Their extensive knowledge and passion for rare breeds and sustainable farming will be an excitement for everyone.

Then the Toonie Bike Race, down Easy Rider, starts at 2 p.m. Registration is at Guest Services at 1:30 p.m. The new event-series is meant to challenge you and your biking buddies for one last summer rib down the mountain.

On Sunday Sept. 2, KHMR presents the first Cyclo Cross Race of the BC/AB season. If you haven’t heard yet, Cyclo Cross racing is wildly popular and quickly gaining momentum across Western Canada.

All riders are invited to enter the competition on their mountain bikes and challenge the pros. This race provides the right mix of competition and fun for an epic day on two wheels, crossing through the KHMR village, mud, cobblestones, stairs, ramps, and bank corners.

The Farmers’ Market will also be in the resort plaza on Sunday. Fresh produce, jam and jellies, delicious and healthy home baking, local pottery, hand-made soaps, crocheted novelties, artwork and more will be on hand, accompanied by some great local entertainment.

The Performance Rental Centre and General Store will be having their summer clearance event, selling a variety of bike parts and accessories. All the 2012 rental bikes will be on sale as well.
