Miles was asking about conditions at Nipika, so I checked it out in person. Today it was excellent as long as you had waxless skis.
The grooming here is imaculate and the variety of trails almost endless. Today I skied the north trails where there are lots of interesting landscape features to see including the natural bridge and the Cross river canyon.
It’s truly amazing what Lyle Wilson has created here with some imagination and plenty of hard work.
We enjoy coming here not only for the excellent skiing, but because it’s dog-friendly and Tessa can run off-leash. The warm weather has already arrived with the temperature reaching +4°C. I hope the forecast is correct when it predicts 2 cm of new snow tonight. If it doesn’t snow, the tracks will be very icy tomorrow with the low of -10 tonight and a high of -3.
