Nakiska was specifically designed to host the alpine events of the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. It is located in the heart of the spectacular Kananaskis Valley. Although designed with ski racing in mind, Nakiska's terrain was carefully planned to meet the needs of family visitors. In fact 70% of Nakiska's terrain is rated as intermediate with 16 percent classified as novice and the remaining 14% as expert. Off the slopes, two hotels, located five minutes from the resort, provide more than 420 rooms.

Visitor Reviews of Nakiska

Janice Barre from Canada writes:

We went as two families On Dec 30/19 and were very disappointed at the parking, Ticket procurement (30 min +) and most disappointing was the Mid Mountain Lodge at 1330. Service in this lodge took 1 hour of our ski time. We pay 300$ + for tickets and 1 hour in line for a coffee and fries. After this they ran out of fries and decided to still charge full price for 15 fries. Stumped at the only checkout, the worker was unable to handle the register by himself making mistakes and unable to complete transactions. It was the worst waste of money for a quick lunch. Rethinking what used to be a good ski mountain.
