Kicking Horse Opens 4th Bowl To Celebrate 10th Birthday (09-Aug-10)

Kicking Horse, USA, August 9, 2010 - Kicking Horse Mountain Resort

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in British Columbia which celebrates its tenth season this winter has announced it will open its fourth Alpine bowl this winter 2010/11. Known by local mountain enthusiasts as ‘Super Bowl’, the terrain will introduce a further selection of advanced and expert skiable terrain to the resort’s already impressive inventory.

The terrain in Super Bowl includes  15 new advanced and expert chutes and the entire bowl will have an off-piste feel within a controlled inbounds environment.  Winter access to the terrain will be a unique experience with a new ski traverse trail from the top of the Golden Eagle Express Gondola. The main chutes will be accessible via two boot pack trails from the summits of Terminator and T2.  Each hike is located in the hi-alpine and will be a must do for those seeking a true big mountain experience.

Super Bowl is situated south of the existing Kicking Horse Mountain Resort ski area boundary and positioned within the original controlled recreational area.  The bowl’s terrain is made up of North, South and East facing slopes with a ski out that exists at the top of the existing Terminator run.  With over 15 new inbound chutes – added to the existing 70 – Kicking horse will now offer 85 chutes.

“Super Bowl has always been a part of the resort’s Controlled Recreation Area (CRA) and original master plan.  However, the bowl has never been open and skiable terrain," says Steve Paccagnan, President and CEO. “The decision was made to open this new terrain and provide our valued guests with safe access to one of the best alpine ski/snowboard bowls and chutes in North America."
