Day 2 on the Powder Highway brought the SkiZer to Kicking Horse near Golden, B.C.
Impressions? It’s pretty amazing.
More than 4,000 feet of vertical and some very scary steeps. Just the place for the 60-year-old SkiZer.
Emile Lavoie, marketing and events coordinator for the resort, showed the old man around. The mountain is filled with high ridges, bowls and some pretty radical chutes. A few inches had fallen overnight on top of a few inches the day before, and Kicking Horse was skiing very well.
Winds drifted snow into the many chutes, creating soft freshies on every run.
All I can say is that it’s impressive. I’m ready to saddle up and return any time.
