Kananaskis, AB – At Nakiska we like to get things done early.  We strive each season to be the earliest ski resort in Canada to open and this year, we’re excited to be the first ski resort to rev up winter in Canada and begin our snowmaking!  With a little help from Mother Nature, providing us with some cooler temperatures in Alberta and some natural snow beginning to fall this La Nina winter is already off to a great start!

Nakiska is scheduled to open weekends in November starting November 5th – stay tuned to our website and social media for updates!

Nakiska Season Passes are on sale until October 15th – order yours through the RCR Webstore and save.
