Kicking Horse/Golden B.C. = 4,133-Vertical-Feet of Gorgeous

Today was my first day ever skiing Kicking Horse ski resort in Golden, B.C.

I was blown away.

Kicking Horse is the home to 6th longest vertical drop in North America at 4,133-vertical-feet.

Top-to-bottom gondola laps will give you the burn you’ve been looking for.

Kicking Horse is steep, continuous, long.

It doesn’t hurt that this place just happens to be absolutely stunning.

The views today were sublime. 

The Canadian Rockies are jagged reminders of the mountains you drew on construction paper with broken crayons when you were 7 years old.

At the bottom of the mountain today, ice sun halos dominated the sky and gave exhibit to one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen.

Today was saw a circumzenithal arc, a supralateral arc, a Parry arc, a upper tangent arc, and a 22° halo.
