We’re back from a wonderful trip to Nipika. We skied one last time this morning on Henri’s Loop. The first feature on this trail is a “screamer” down to the Kootenay River.
At Nipika, ten steps from your cabin door and you’re on the ski trails. Snow conditions are excellent and in a little over two weeks, it’s the Nipika Loppet.
Although the accommodations at Nipika are already fully booked, if you want to travel the night before the loppet, Radium is about a half-hour away with lots of reasonably-priced motels. Registration for the loppet is through Zone 4.
