The Powder Express takes you straight from your hotel to one of the most thrilling ski resorts in Canada.

You’ll arrive right as the gondola opens so you can squeeze in as many runs as you like. With plenty of steep and deep powder, Kicking Horse offers heart-pumping vertical runs, steep chutes and wide-open bowls.

Featuring abundant soft snow and high alpine terrain Kicking Horse has something for everyone. Wide open bowls and long, long groomed runs for cruising, steep chutes and tree runs for the more adventurous. There is almost always fresh powder to be found. Enjoy a spectacular lunch at the Eagle’s Eye – Canada’s highest restaurant. A great day ski trip from Banff and Lake Louise and not to be missed on your Rockies ski vacation.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is located in Golden, British Columbia, approximately 2 hours drive and 145 kilometers west of Banff.
The tour includes return transportation to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort from Banff or Lake Louise and lift ticket for the day. It does not include equipment or lunch.
We plan to arrive at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort by 9.15am just after the gondola opens. This can vary slightly due to weather and road conditions. 6 hours
The Powder Express is designed to maximize time on the hill so we start early to get you there as the gondola opens and leave just as it stops. There are no half day options available.
The planned duration of the tour is approximately 12 hours from Banff or 10 hours from Lake Louise including hotel pick up and drop off. We try our best to adhere to this time schedule however this can sometimes vary due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather/road conditions.
Ski/snowboard equipment is not provided. Guests are to ring their own. If you do not have your own gear we would suggest hiring in town the day before, alternatively there is a rental shop at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
Although this tends to a mountain for more experienced skiers/snowboarders there are runs suitable for all levels. Feel free to come see us in store to pick up a trail map or speak to our staff to see if it will suit your ability.
This is not a ski lesson package. If you are looking for a lesson speak to us in store about local options and we can find the right deal for you. This tour allows guests a full day to themselves to explore and ski/ride the runs they want to do.
