The Gateway to the Canadian Rockies and the proud site of the 1988 Winter Olympics, Nakiska features some of the best cruising and carving trails in the Rockies. A great resort to learn the sport of skiing and snowboarding with wide-open runs groomed to perfection. As the closest ski resort to Calgary, it is a family favourite not only because of the short drive but also because of easy on-mountain navigation and a variety of terrain suitable for all levels. Adventure is accessible for everyone with the Monster Glades that give all ability levels access to secret powder stashes and the excitement of tree skiing and riding. Nakiska has a reputation for offering world-class skiing due to state-of-the-art snowmaking and grooming systems as well as having high speed chairs for all main lifts including the new Gold Chair Express that takes skiers and riders to the summit in under 5 minutes.Lift Infrastructure:
