The classic and skate courses weave throughout the trail systems on the North side of Nipika Mountain Resort.  Following the Kootenay and Cross Rivers, expect some challenging climbs and technical descents interspersed with nice flats and beautiful views.  The trails are groomed and trackset to a high quality with our new Bombardier groomer.


Luxury cabin accommodations and primitive camping is available at Nipika.  Contact for more information or to make a reservation.
