Bruno Hikes T1
Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Family Photographer
For the Del Fatti family photography session, we decided to hike T1 ridge at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. A few years prior, they did the same hike on their wedding day and wanted to recreate some of the photos with their six-month-old baby, Bruno.
During our walk up we wondered which was more difficult, to hike in wedding attire or with a baby on your back? Luckily, this family feels at home in the mountains and agrees that no matter the occasion, being able to have these hikes in our backyard is extremely special.
The morning of our photo session, a huge thunderstorm broke out before we could begin. Luckily, the weather moved through the mountains quickly, so we enjoyed a quick coffee at the shop. After a brief intermission, we headed up the gondola to begin our hike and family photo session.
The sun was shining again and it was a great day for their first hike together as a family at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
The hike up T1 is relatively short but steep, with very rewarding views. Imagine many rocky steps that bring you straight up the side of a mountain. This hike will definitely get your blood moving and the lungs huffing, but it does not last long.
Doing this hike at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort for family photos is worth it for the spectacular view of the valley. Bruno is lucky to have two parents who are confident amongst the mountains and who love to take him on adventures. I imagine this will be the first of many days out exploring the mountains together.
