While they were camped on the Great Divide, Sir Hector was attempting to tie his pack horse to a tree when he was viciously kicked by his horse which rendered him unconscious for so long that the native guides thought he was dead and dug a grave in a spiritual valley along the tribe's namesake – the “Wapta” River. When Sir Hector awoke he went on to explore the valley of his planned burial and the river valley henceforth became known as the “Kicking Horse River” and the new route to the west.Kicking Horse Mountain Resort StatisticsWith a vertical rise of 4,133 feet (1,260 metres), Kicking Horse has one of the largest vertical ascents of any resort in North America.
