Kicking Horse River

Restless river passing through picturesque valleys offers spectacular scenery and some of the finest white water rafting in the country.

Reviewed By 5cottie - British Columbia, Canada

From White water rafting on the upper reaches to Kayak paddling where is enters the Columbia this river is full of fun (if you're sensible) and adventure. The flow much of the year is pretty fast and it ices over in the winter. DON"T WALK ON IT IN THE WINTER. The thicknes of the ice varies dramatically and if you go through you're not comming out! End EX. If you're there in the spring the ice breakup can be pretty dramtic too at times. Ice from further up the Mountain bottlenecks at Golden and tends to pile up , especially after a hard windter and a fast melt. When it lets go it's a sight to see I'm told! It is a great viewpoint though at any time of the year. Whether from the road bridge or the spectacular covered wooden bridge a few yards downstream. The Riverside walks are pleasant too. Spirit place is a tranquil spot to stop and smell the flowers or take a cold bear at the Riverside Tavern and the water garden adds that visual and aural water delight as you can't see the river for the flood bank, protecting Spirit Place.

Mustang Powder

Reviewed By 386ronf

I was there in early December. The snow did not disappoint. My group did 3 nights at the lodge. The food was excellent. 4 and 5-course dinners! They know how to do it right. The first 2 days of skiing were mainly tree skiing due to the weather. On the third day the storm broke we had a bluebird day in the alpine! Hot tub - yes, clean rooms - yes, great staff - yes. If you have the skill you should go here to ski.

Global Outdoor Travel - GOT Adventure

With the combination of our fantastic horses, fun, knowledgeable, personable guides/wranglers, small or big groups, and the stunning beauty of the scenery, what more can one ask for? Our guests have a passion for horses, want to be out with nature, and have an adventurous side. It is the excitement of crossing a river, riding "the man from snowy river," going thru old growth, river bottoms, crossing slides and alpine meadows, just riding in the mountains and doing it with a strong animal beneath you. The views are spectacular! We also offer pack trips, cabin rentals, and fishing trips. Must call or email for directions. Do NOT drive to our house please. The map is not able to match where the rides are which are in the mountains of the St. Marys.
