Wild. Big. Steep. Unforgettable. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort (KHMR) is pretty dang brag-able. With over 50 inbounds chutes, access to four big alpine bowls and nonexistent lift lines this freeride mecca is already epic. It’s hard to fathom just what a Kicking Horse Mountain Resort expansion would do to this already incredible collection of inbounds terrain. We caught up with inside source Tyson Newell, the Marketing & Media Coordinator for KHMR to get the nitty-gritty.

NITTY GRITTY DETAILS
“Ozone North will remain beyond the boundary, or slackcountry, as it has been previously. Rudi’s Ridge and beyond will also remain slack/backcountry terrain. Our avalanche control works outward from the gondola, so these features will be some of the last to open after storms, not unlike Whitewall, T2.” – Tyson Newell
