What to pack for a stay at Nipika Mountain Resort

You’ve booked a beautiful cabin at Nipika Mountain Resort but have no idea what to pack! Hopefully this post will help you out.

Each cabin has a bathroom, full kitchen, wood-burning stove, BBQ, beautiful porch, and different sleeping layout. There are no TVs, and wifi is limited.


All bedding and linens are included. The beds have crisp sheets and warm linens. Extra bedding for pullout couches are stored in the cabins that require it.


Plates, cups, glasses, bowls, cutlery, pots and pans, French press, and Kicking Horse Coffee are stocked in the kitchens. We have ovens, stoves, and BBQs for cooking. All you need is food and beverages.

The nearest grocery store is in Radium Hot Springs, a 35-minute drive away. A larger store is in Invermere, 45-minutes away.

Since Nipika is an eco-resort and runs on solar power, we do not have plug-in appliances like blenders, toasters, coffee makers, waffle makers, kettles, etc. We ask that you do not bring them as they require too much power. We have French presses in each cabin for making coffee.


The water from our taps is fresh, cold, clean, and safe to drink! It is some of the best tasting water you can find, so there is no need to bring bottled water.


Each cabin has their own bathroom with shower. There is Rocky Mountain Soap Co. shampoo, conditioner, and soap. We ask that guests do not use hair dryers, curling irons, and hair straighteners that plug in as it is a huge demand on our solar power system.


There are beautiful wood-burning fireplaces in each cabin to help keep it warm in the cooler months. We supply wood, kindling, and axes at each cabin. Not sure how to start a fire in one? Ask our on-site host and they’ll be happy to help!


We are a pet-friendly resort! If you bring your furry friend, please also bring them a bed and any blankets they use, food, and bowls. We ask that you refrain from letting them on the bedding and furniture; please use their beds and/or lay blankets on the couches if they’re used to using them!


We have three firepits place around the meadow—one by the pond, one at the top, and one near the Day Lodge. There is wood and axes at each one. S’mores are never a bad idea so consider bringing marshmallows, cookies, and chocolate!

Equipment for fun

There are no trail fees for cabin guests and we have many options for recreation in every season along with rentals for some of the activities!

Bring it

The cabins are almost fully-equipped for what you’ll need during your stay. Bring food, beverages, sporting equipment, books, and games. We hope your stay is adventurous, relaxing, or a combination of the two! Still not sure what to pack? Contact us and we can help out!
