The Canmore Nordic Centre is North America’s premier Nordic venue, sporting 30 electronic Kurvinen targets, 24 permanent wax cabins plus wax testing area, extensive skiing and paved roller ski trails, a top-notch snow making system and lighting for night skiing and shooting.
Since 2005, Canmore has hosted several National Championships in Nordic and Biathlon events, several North American Cup events, 2012 IBU Cups 6&7, 2014 IBU Cups 7&8, the 2009 World Youth Junior Biathlon Championships and three Cross Country Ski World Cups.
“A picture paints a thousand words” – and this certainly is true, especially in trying to capture the beauty of the Nordic Centre’s surroundings. So, rather than words, we invite you to view this video. We’re sure you’ll be impressed.
The organizers of the 2016 BMW IBU World Cup Biathlon look forward to adding this year’s events to the Canmore Nordic Centre’s legacy of successful sport competitions.
