Keeping guests and staff safe

Covid-19 November 2021 update

The health and safety of our guests, staff, and the community are Nipika’s priority and we continue to follow government and public health guidelines to minimize the spread of Covid-19.

We will continue to adjust Covid-19 protocols in line with evolving guidelines.

Unsure of what to expect when you visit Nipika? We are fortunate we have always been able to provide a wonderful experience while easily accommodating physical distancing.

Cabin guests

The cabins are self-contained and check in and guest services can be provided outside and at a safe distance.

Cabins are, and will always be, cleaned to meet public health guidelines.

We are taking additional steps to ensure guest and staff safety. For example, enhanced cleaning with a focus on high-touch areas and adjusted check out and check in times for extra cleaning protocols (10am checkout and 5pm check in).

Day-use guests

The trails remain open to both cabin and day-use guests. There are numerous trails for all ages and abilities that allow physical distancing.

Bathrooms are available outside the Day Lodge. Winter rentals and trail payments are inside the barn with bathrooms available.

Nipika will continue to offer daily cross-country ski lessons with a reduced capacity to comply with physical distancing. Please call the office, check out the online booking form, or see the on-site host about availability.

Adventure camp guests

To continue to mitigate the spread of Covid-19, we are introducing a new policy in 2021: staff and participants must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to take part in any overnight camps.

The only people who will be exempt from this policy are those too young for vaccination according to their home country’s Covid-19 vaccination regulations and those with a signed letter from a licenced medical doctor.

General

Nipika’s staff are vaccinated and are knowledgeable with current public health protocols. We will continue to follow the recommendations of both provincial and federal governments and all major health agencies to minimize the spread of Covid-19.

We believe physical activity and being in nature are integral to health and well-being. Practice hand washing, social distancing, and enjoy all Nipika Mountain Resort has to offer.

Please stay home if you aren’t feeling well or have been advised to isolate.
