Conditions were better than expected. Main runs are groomed but slick in spots. Go mid week if you can. no lines.

Well it's been the same all week groomers with iced sections later in the day. They are making snow glades are tough on the skis a little more snow need. If you can go during the week they are setting attendance records on the weekends!

I was afraid with the reports about bad snow etc but as an intermediate skier I thought today was fantastic. Ice in parts and of course would benefit from more snow but all in all a great day . I think Canadians are spoilt for choice with options ....

Several runs open from the top of Silver and a few from the top of Gold are open plus the gladed area. The Nakiska claim of 40 trails open is a joke. 8 groomed trails perhaps, plus the glades. Groomed trails are in decent condition with icy sections forming later in the day. The gladed areas are reasonably soft. There are some marginal sections though!

Decent day and pretty good conditions considering the lack of snow. I was pleasantly surprised.

No new snow, groomed runs were in good shape with some icy patches. Broken cloud with periodic glimpses of the sun. A great way to begin Christmas holidays. A great day.

it was my first time ever at nakiska today. Beautiful mountain. Seriously lacking snow.   A friend and I were one of the first people up the silver chair today and the grooming on homesteader was great. After lunch the grooming was worn and it became SUPER slick. definitely shouldnt be charging full price right now considering only 3 blue runs and a couple greens are open.

Would recommend waiting for some real snow. Packed with people and icy in spots. Happy it's open but I won't be back for awhile.

Fantastic day with 8

Fantastic day with 8" of fresh fluffy powder and still some untracked areas on the top. No lift lines but a little chilly. Wear a neck warmer.
