The 1988 Calgary Winter Olympic Games brought the downhill skiing events to Nakiska in Kananaskis, while cross-country skiing and biathlon competitions took place at the newly built Canmore Nordic Centre. With TV coverage showcasing Canmore Kananaskis’ natural beauty all over the world, the secret was out.
