Powder Highway Revisited: Lynsey Dyer Snow Report on Kicking Horse
Posted on November 25, 2013

Lynsey Dyer at Kicking Horse

We’ve been reporting on the Powder Highway all month long on the Live Your Adventure blog, with stories, webisodes and galleries from our ski team’s road trip with Stellar Media for National Geographic last winter. We’ve run the traditional multi-media format for the segments on K2’s Rotor Lodge at CMH, Eagle Pass Heli and Revelstoke Mountain Resort, but when we reached out to Lynsey Dyer for the download on Kicking Horse she proposed an entirely new creative format. Fusing narrative elements of a podcast with epic Will Wissman images, this audio-captioned gallery from Dyer is the result.  Give it a look and a listen to get a sense of the experience of skiing the expert-focused resort in Golden, BC famous for steep lines and gnarly Canadian terrain. -LYA Editor

    I rode here in February 2002. I believe the first year it was called Kicking Horse and had upper mountain access. We only spent 1 day here having driven up from our base camp of Banff. Lynsey’s report is DEAD ON. It snowed the day before we got there and continued until mid day the day we rode. I recall it being about 24″ over the 30 hour period. The only placed I’ve ridden where the snow was drier than Utah. I would truly love to get another crack at this place now that it’s fully up and running. This is a MUST to check off the North American resort landscape.
