Kicking Horse to Get Bigger

The already-huge big mountain paradise gracing Golden B.C. will be getting a hell of a lot more terrain and lifts.

On a powder day, head out on CPR ridge, and go far, far down (you may think you’ve gone too far, but when a local blows by you at full speed, keep following her direction). Drop to your right for steep, soft trees, and at the bottom, keep heading right, waaay right, for soft snow all the way down. At the bottom you will funnel back to the base.
