Located 83km outside of Calgary, the Nakiska ski area was built to host the Alpine skiing events at the 1988 Winter Olympics. Although it's expanded since then to become a popular resort destination, the Olympic flame still burns at the entrance, reminding skiers of Nakiska's legacy.
Nakiska lies on the southern face of Mount Allan, which is part of the Canadian Rockies. The ski area, which sits on elevations between 1,525m and 2,260m, boasts 25km of slopes and a total of 64 runs, which are serviced by three high-speed quad chair lifts and an additional double lift. The challenging runs make Nakiska the ideal resort for more experienced skiers.
Aside from the skiing, Nakiska also features a tubing hill with three exhilarating tracks, as well as a dedicated rail park for snowboarders. The resort also runs guided snowshoeing tours, with a choice of three different trails (beginner, intermediate or advanced).
For hungry skiers in search of some nourishment after a day spent on the slopes, there's plenty of choice available in the town of Canmore, which is about a 40m drive away from Nakiska. There's the chance to sample everything, from fine dining at Chez Francois, to quick comfort food at 514 Poutine.
Nakiska is owned by the Resorts of the Canadian Rockies group, which also runs the nearby ski resorts of Fernie, Kicking Horse, and Kimberley. This means it's possible to get a lift pass that covers all four resorts, so skiers can get access to an impressive 347km of slopes in total.
