11 Dec COVID-19 Information
Keeping guests and staff safe
Updated: December 2020
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 are fortunate that Nipika can provide a wonderful experience while easily accommodating physical distancing.
The cabins are self-contained and check in and guest services can be provided outside and at a safe distance. Cabins have been, and will always be, cleaned to meet public health guidelines.
We are taking additional steps to ensure guest and staff safety:
- Enhanced cleaning with a focus on high-touch areas like door handles, light switches, handrails, faucets, and knobs on cupboards;
- Coffee, tea, games and books have been removed from the cabins;
- Adjusted check out and check in times for extra cleaning protocols (10am checkout and 5pm check in); and
- Common areas like sauna will remain closed.
There are three firepits available. At this time, they remain open but we ask guests only use a firepit with people from your own family/cabin.
The trails remain open to both cabin and day-use guests. There are numerous activities and trails for all ages and abilities that allow physical distancing.
The Day Lodge is now open for rentals, trail fees, and to purchase Nipika swag. Masks are mandatory when inside the Day Lodge.
Sitting is permitted upstairs with six people (from a family/cohort) to a table. Masks can be removed to eat/drink but must be worn once you leave your table.
Bathrooms are available both inside the outside the Day Lodge for guests.
Nipika will continue to offer cross-country ski lessons but with a reduced capacity to comply with physical distancing. Please call the office or see the on-site host about availability.
Nipika’s staff are knowledgeable with current public health protocols and 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 and physical distancing, and come enjoy all Nipika Mountain Resort has to offer. We are happy to welcome you!
