New owners have big plans for the Kicking Horse resort in the Rockies
Ski resort company Resorts of the Canadian Rockies has bought the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in British Columbia from its Dutch developer.
Kicking Horse's main draw is its 1,260 metres (4,133 feet) of vertical slope, which is the fourth-biggest drop in North America according to the resort's website. The whole resort spreads over 2,800 acres with more than 120 trails.
This is the company's third property in the Rocky Mountain region, which is appreciated by skiiers worldwide for its deep powder snow. They also own Fernie and Kimberley ski resorts, also in Eastern British Columbia.
Vice-president of the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies, Matt Mosteller, said: ""For us, it anchors, truly, the great powder ski destinations in North America, in British Columbia, of Kicking Horse and Fernie. It gives the guests easy access to both and creates the ski safari opportunity."
The Kicking Horse resort has also had more than 400 homes built in it.
Those wishing to visit the slopes of British Columbia are advised to ensure they are protected by a comprehensive
sports travel insurance policy before they depart.
