Great Things Happening at Nitehawk Recreation Area
A jewel in the Peace Country is about to get even better. Hard to believe Nitehawk Recreation Area is run as a non-profit. Nitehawk Recreation Area has been in existence since 1960 and run by a board of directors, a dedicated team of volunteers and a hard working crew of staff.
Through the course of the winter we expect upwards of 40,000 visits to our ski hill. We think it’s one of the best opportunities for young people in particular to enjoy fresh air, exercise and good clean fun in a controlled environment. That’s why so many families and businesses are keen to support our Nitehawk Ski Hill.
Over the years Nitehawk has grown from a quaint ski hill to a multipurpose recreational area and facility. It employs 8 full time and 60 part time seasonal staff throughout the year, and provides recreation, exercise and fun for thousands of people year round. The chalet provides a wonderful facility for weddings, conventions and banquets in a cozy wilderness setting. All this just 10 minutes south of Grande Prairie.
The area includes the renowned:
Nitehawk Ski Hill
Gravity Mountain Bike Park
and Wilderness Campground open year round
