Make Golden BC Your Backyard

Outdoor Lifestyle

The Great Outdoors
If you were in Golden you could:
  • Venture into the backcountry for some heli boarding, or ski in knee deep powder at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

  • Paddle down the legendary Kicking Horse River, one of the wildest rivers in Canada.

  • Ride on Mount 7, once home to the epic Psychosis race, one of the world’s steepest, fastest and longest downhill mountain bike races.

  • Check out the world’s largest grizzly bear refuge and walk with the wolves at the Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre.

  • Tee-off at the world-class Golden Golf Club and enjoy a round of golf without the distractions of traffic or development.

  • Wax up your cross-country skis and explore over 30 kilometres of trails at Dawn Mountain.
With some of the best biking terrain in Canada, world renowned climbing and gliding, and loads of snowmobiling trails, we spend our free time in the great outdoors.

We’ve got six National Parks nearby, so there’s always something to do, any time of year. Check out the links below to learn more, and then come join us in the great outdoors.

I came to Golden for the kayaking, but I stayed for the skiing. Golden really has a full suite of outdoor activities.
