Winston Lodge

Last updated: 25 July, 2023

This intimate boutique hotel, housed in a traditional wood and stone lodge, is ideally located in the heart of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, just a few minutes’ walk from the main gondola.

The 11 bedrooms are smart and spacious, featuring hand-crafted wood furniture, incredibly comfy feather-down beds, and balconies with mountain views.

After skiing, guests can unwind in the cosy lounge, with its big sofas, stone fireplace, books shelves and board games, before refuelling at the Lodge’s buzzy bistro, popular for its tasty burgers and local craft beers.

About the resort

Located eight miles from the former logging town of Golden, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort was developed in 2000 from a small ski hill and is one of Canada’s newest resorts. Even so, it still retains its small-town charm.

While it only has four lifts, it boasts a respectable 1,260m vertical drop and some excellent terrain for experts and adventurous intermediates – think steep and deep chutes and bowls in every direction.

It’s also home to the 2,347m Golden Eagle Restaurant, the highest in Canada.
