Nitehawk's not going to wow you. If you can ski or ride half decent it's a 60 second ride to the bottom. There's one chairlift, and one t-bar. And there is a pretty good terrain park with more boxes/rails than I'd expect for a hill this size, and a couple small jumps, and medium jumps too. My favourite part of... More

We are avid skiers and spend 4 days per week at Nitehawk. Lots of variety with the runs to challenge skiers and snowboarders. Excellent lessons. Well patrolled by CSPS, Lounge food is excellent. Service slows a bit when the lounge is full. Great local hill.

Me and 5 friends went tubing one night and we hand so much fun! The employees at the top and the bottom of the hill were tons of fun too! We will definitely go back again!!

I grew up in Grovedale and I have enjoyed skiing at Nitehawk for many years. Recently, I was given the fantastic opportunity to work there and what I learned is that the Nitehawk staff members are a family who work together to give the customers the best experience that they can. They take their jobs seriously and they care about... More

Sure Nitehawk may be small and in a region thats about as flat as a pancake, but that also gives it its broad appeal.. For one, you get a lot of locals who come year after year giving it a more family friendly vibe. Another benefit is that you don't have to brave all sorts of dangerous mountain passes in... More

Good hill if you are local to Grande Prairie and want to run out for a quick ski. The hill is north facing in the Wapiti River valley, can be cold and windy both down and up. Snow quality is fair to poor and hard packed most of the time. Great for learning to ski or trying out new equipment... More

It does take a little longer to be fitted into boots/skies if you do not have your own. But it is definetelly a ski hill that you do not want to pass if you just learning and starting out. It has some very good - small hills to start on. It also has very friendly and knowledgable instructors who will... More
