Calgary’s closest mountain, Nakiska Ski Area, makes skiing history by being the 1st Ski Area in Canada to open and the 1st Ski Area to open for regular season operation in October. “This is a very Happy Halloween for Skiers and riders in Canada, as the Ski Season begins at Canada’s Olympic Mountain, Nakiska!” says Matt Mosteller.
