Nipika Mountain Resort is a unique mountain bike setting that brings to life the dream of Lyle & Dianne Wilson to create a wilderness haven that is in harmony with it’s spectacular Rocky Mountain setting. Purchased in 1979 the Wilsons have worked to create an outdoor wonderland for the endurance sport enthusiast.

Nipika is an eco-resort, and generates all its electricity utilizing green technologies and takes pride that its beautiful cabins are energy self-sufficient. There is an emphasis on self-propelled recreation at Nipika. With its 100-kilometre trail network and rivers nearby, the rocky mountain resort beckons visitors to hike, cross country ski, snowshoe, trail run, canoe and kayak and, of course, mountain bike.

The Plan: After a relaxing night in Canmore, with coffee in hand, we’ll transfer to Nipika for a day on the trails. Enjoy the drive through the majestic Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park, via the Trans Cananda Highway, and south through Kootenay National Park into British Columbia. Post stage, stay at the resort or shuttle a short distance to Radium where you can bunk down for two nights.

The Stage: Beginning at 11am, we’ll send you off in a unique time trial format that will allow you to soak in all that Nipika has to offer: singletrack through pristine forest, bluff hugging trail high above the Kootenay River and never ending views. Finish where you started, at the resort, and hang out and enjoy a day in the Kootenay Mountains. All routes are subject to change at any time to allow for quality control, safety of the riders and wildlife.
