Nipika offers accommodations in luxurious hand built log cabins, all with full kitchens and baths, wood fireplaces and gas bbq’s, for the ultimate in cozy cabin living. Our 50 km ski trail system [ all groomed for classic & skate skiing ] is arguably one of the most beautiful in the world, set in the majestic Rockies. In addition to the xc ski trails we offer over 50 additional kms of single track, snowshoe, hiking, mtn biking trails, and trail running trails. Nipika focuses on self propelled outdoor recreation, cross country skiing & snowshoeing in Winter [ Dec. – April ] and mountain biking, trail running, hiking and canoeing in the Summer months. The whole resort is ‘off grid’ generating all our own energy from clean solar power. The entire resort operated on less than 1/3 the energy use of ONE single family home, yet the cabins are well appointed to provide all the creature comforts. You will find a warm knowledgable staff to provide for all your needs and even take you for a ski in our spectacular region.
