Where to stay at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
Glacier Mountaineer Lodge is THE place to stay in the heart of
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort's village. Kicking Horse is located in Golden, 2.5
hours from Calgary Airport along the Trans-Canada Highway 1. Glacier Mountaineer
Lodge is just a few ski boot steps from Kicking Horse's Gondola, so you are
totally ski-in, ski-out, in the heart of the on mountain alpine village so you
can walk to everything, the small market, coffee bar, ski shops, Day Lodge with
ski services, and Peaks après ski bar. Best of all you are surrounded by the
peaks of the Purcells, the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the Selkirk Mountains
where heli skiing operation are based.
Accommodations at Glacier Mountaineer Lodges range from guest rooms to spacious
2-3 bedroom suites that sleep up to ten, with the Mountaineer building offering
the larger more luxurious of the two buildings. Each guest suite offers a cozy
gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, balcony with breathtaking scenery, and
washer and dryers. The Glacier and Mountaineer, next to one
another, have all the guest amenities skiers would expect: underground parking,
ski storage, a steam room and sauna, an outdoor hot tub and 24 hour front desk
service, WiFi and a fitness center - though if you ski Kicking Horse's kick ass
terrain you shouldn't need to work out in the evenings. Instead head for après
ski in the village at Peaks or the Kicking Horse Saloon, after a soak in the
small outdoor hot tub or the Jacuzzi in your suite. The Glacier Mountaineer
doesn’t have any dining, or a huge lobby, since this is primarily condo style
For dining, Kicking Horse's Eagle’s Eye is an amazing dining experience at
the top of the mountain, take the gondola up before sunset to watch the glow of
the day descend over the amazing mountain peaks, stay for a drink, and for a
magical evening at the summit, or you can make this a scenic lunch spot during
your ski day. Make reservations as Eagle’s Eye gets busy, prime spot at prime
In the Kicking Horse Village, Peaks offers casual pub dining at the base of the
gondola with comfy chairs to relax in after your big ski day. Corks is a five
minute walk from Glacier Mountaineer Lodge at the Copper House Lodge, with
cuisine a few ski turns above standard pub fare with a kicked back atmosphere.
The Kicking Horse Pub is another popular local pub spot next door to Corks.
Kicking Horse’s other ski in ski out properties include Palliser Lodge, Copper
Horse Lodge, Vagabond Lodge, and Winston Lodge at the ski mountain base. There
are also a few luxury Kicking Horse ski chalet rentals. Or you can lodge in
downtown Golden at the Days Inn or other affordable motels, but you’re not slope
side when the lifts open.
