Marias Pass is nearly 2%, very close to Kicking Horse.

Many trains make it down mountain passes all the time in cold weather. Your comment about the cold weather and a steep pass being the cause of the CP derailment shows complete lack of railroad knowledge. Cold weather happens all the time on Kicking Horse Pass.
