Alpine Skiing In The Canmore Area
Canmore is situated between two major Alpine Downhill Ski areas, Kananaskis Country and Banff National Park.
Nakiska, located in Kananaskis Provincial Park, is the site of the Alpine events during 1988 Winter Olympic Games. To fully ensure a successful Olympic games and reliable snow conditions for years to come, Nakiska was equipped with one of the most expensive and sophisticated snow making systems in the world. The end result is that skiers can depend on quality snow coverage from mountain top to valley bottom from December until mid-April. The mountain offers 28 different runs, a vertical drop of over 2,400 feet, and lift lineups are virtually non-existent, as the mountain features 5 lifts including 2 quad chairs, 1 triple chair, 1 double chair and a surface lift. Nakiska is only a 45 minute drive from Canmore.
