Great location on top of the mountain. We had a dinner buffet which was good but without special factor. The entertainment with Ricky Diamonds hilarious ! One suggestion: keep the plates heated, the food gets cold quicker up there. Service was excellent otherwise

Restaurant at the tip of the gondola at Kicking Horse Mountain - spectacular views and great food. Friendly and helpful service staff. Food was delicious - we had salads with additional salmon and chicken - perfect.

We spent some time looking around at the bottom and the views at the top are great so allow plenty of time. If you are running late then a half hour should be good enough and marvel at the views afterwards.
