Our family spent a day at this lovely facility. Nakisha is the closest ski mountain from Calgary. A ski resort most suitable for family with young children. It's like skiing in the Spring today! Sunny yet the slope was good.

It is a great ski resort with a great ticket price. Very short distance from Calgary. It took about an hour considering a weather conditions. Weather changed several times...from fogy and windy to nice and sunny.
