Earn Your Turns at KB! Healthy and fun, ditch the lift and ascend in body and spirit as you make your way to the top of the ridge and plan your descent!
Ski uphill, why would anybody ever want to do that!? It turns out that uphill skiing or skinning is a wonderful way to to get in some low impact cardio and bring a new outlook to your local ski hill. Kissing bridge is excited to roll out a new uphill ski and snowshoe program that will offer four routes to choose from, one at our South area, one at KB North and two at the Central area. Once to the top you can traverse the entire ridgeline and skiers may choose to descend down any open trail that speaks to them. If none of this uphill skiing makes any sense to you whatsoever here is a link that provides an overview of skinning.
While skinning or snowshoeing at KB you can take advantage of all the snowmaking, grooming and resort services we offer, the same as our lift riding patrons. In fact you may want to visit the pub when your day is at an end, you have earned your turns and perhaps burned off enough calories to enjoy some well deserved guilt free apres ski treats!
Our uphill skiing and snowshoe route status will be updated on the Slope Report page at kbski.com and open routes will be available during KB operating hours until one hour before sunset. Uphill skiers and snowshoers will be required to get an alpine touring pass at the Central Ticket Center. Passes are available for 10.00 a day or you can get a season alpine touring pass for only 50.00! But I already have a full KB season pass you say! There is no additional fee for KB Full Season Pass holders (you do need to check in at the ticket center and pick up an alpine touring day ticket). In addition we will be announcing a series of night time guided skinning or snowshoeing events, sunrise tours and more. A full detailed report on our uphill policies, events and procedures will be posted at kbski.com shortly.
Get outside, do fun stuff, be kind and have a blast!
