The Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park is a world-renowned hosting facility and North America’s premier Nordic venue.
After hosting the 1988 Winter Olympic Cross Country and Biathlon competitions and the 1992 World Junior Biathlon Championships, the Canmore Nordic Centre (CNC) required significant upgrades to maintain its international caliber. In 2005-06, the CNC went through major upgrades to improve the training and event hosting opportunities for Canadian. These upgrades include an updated 30-point shooting range, new trails, new team facilities, an extension of the paved roller ski trails, and a major upgrade to the snow making system. Since 2005, Canmore has hosted several National Championships in Nordic and Biathlon events, several North American Cup events, the 2009 World Youth Junior Biathlon Championships and 3 Cross Country Skiing World Cups.
The venue has 30 Kurvinen targets with electronic system, with covered canopy and lights. The trails have natural snow enhanced with man-made snow. There are 24 permanent wax cabins, a wax testing area next to the wax cabins, trails and range within 200 meters of the wax cabins and lights for night skiing and shooting. The visitor center has a café and many seats for enjoying the view.
