About Nakiska Ski Resort
Nakiska is nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in beautiful Kananaskis Country, only 45 minutes from the vibrant city of Calgary. Nakiska was home to the Calgary ’88 Olympic Alpine events, and today, skiers and riders enjoy Olympic-length runs that are groomed to perfection. Nakiska is a family-friendly resort. A confident beginner’s area with friendly ski school staff means the kids can enjoy lessons for the day while you explore Nakiska’s challenging upper mountain.
At the end of your ski day, pamper yourself at one of the hotels in Kananaskis Village, only five minutes away from Nakiska. Soak tired muscles in the jacuzzi, curl up next to the fireplace with a book, or indulge in fabulous food! Lifts are just steps away from the full-service day lodge.
Nakiska Ski Resort is proud to offer the best staff housing in the ski industry in Western Canada. Our employees live in Manor 88, the housing facility that was built for the visiting athletes of the 1988 Olympics. Staff accommodation is located in the Kananaskis Valley. The majority of entry-level housing is located at Manor 88 in the Kananaskis Village (approximately four kilometres from the ski hill). You will be assigned your personal room, which is locked for your safety and convenience.
Each floor has approximately ten rooms. You will be required to share your bathroom with one other person next door to your room. Each floor has access to a community kitchen and community living area. There are telephone / Internet lines available, and you are required to contact the phone company to set up packages and billing. The cost of housing in Manor 88 is approximately $10.00 per day, which will be deducted automatically from your pay cheque every two weeks.
If you are placed on our other rental properties, rent may be a little higher. You will be required to pay a damage deposit of $300 that will be returned to you upon departure, provided there are no damages. Nakiska has housing in other locations around Kananaskis approximately 15 kilometres from the ski hill.
Staff Housing: This location offers staff housing on-site and is one of the very few employers that offer single, private rooms. Fun Fact – Nakiska hosted the Olympics back in the 80s and built housing for the Olympians that is now used for staff housing.
