 Nakiska ski area Management Says:
Nakiska is nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in picturesque Kananaskis Country, only 45 minutes from the vibrant city of Calgary.
Nakiska was home to the Calgary '88 Olympic Alpine events, and today, skiers and riders enjoy Olympic-length runs that are groomed to perfection. Nakiska is a family-friendly resort.
