Ski season returns to KHMR

Mother Nature is doing her best to help get the slopes at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort ready for winter skiing.

Mother Nature is doing her best to help get the slopes at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort ready for winter skiing according to Matt Mosteller, vice-president of Marketing and Sales for Resorts of the Canadian Rockies.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is “Kicking Off” winter in style, with a celebration of snow, fun and community.

The Winter Kick Off will host a variety of events and activities throughout the weekend of Dec. 8 and 9.

Events during the weekend will include live DJs and bands, the first round of the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Junior Rail Jam series and a return of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort/Golden Community Day.

“The idea came from Kicking Horse team and three key elements,” said  Mosteller. “ We wanted to start a major event to kick off winter and bring media awareness, drive lodging bookings and tourism benefits for community. We also wanted to create great family experiences and events to entertain all ages. We also wanted to create community goodwill as a core part of our community commitment.”

Mosteller added that it is unbelievable to be so close to the start of another season.

“We are all so passionate about skiing and snowboarding that this time of year is like being a kid in a candy store.”

As for why both skiers and non-skiers should come up to the resort on this weekend, Mosteller explained, “There is so much to do. From a variety of music, kids events and activities, besides the incredible ski and snowboard experience-something for everyone.”

With snow falling he also feels this is a great sign for a good season on the slopes.

“Unbelievable, as of now we have had approx 156 cemtimetres of snow and the alpine is incredible – such a great snowy start. Known for reliable and epic snow it really gets not only us excited about skiing and riding but it is so important to those looking to book a ski vacation as great snow is key, and we have the best,” he said.
