As winter rolls on in the Canadian Rockies, there remains an enormous amount to see and do in the beautiful outdoors. One hub of winter activity that shouldn’t be missed this winter season is the Canmore Nordic Centre, a world-class cross-country skiing area that offers a wide range of outdoor activities for adventure seekers!

Developed for the 1998 Winter Olympics, the Nordic Centre was the venue for all cross-country ski and biathlon events and remains certified to host competitive international nordic events. It is the home of the Canadian national biathlon and cross-country ski teams. Here’s a taste of some activities that the Centre offers throughout the winter:
Cross-Country Skiing: The centre boasts more than 65 km of groomed, machine-made and natural trials. In addition, 6.5 kilometres are lit up every night for night skiing.
Biathlon: Try your hand at the biathlon at the Centre’s world-class biathlon range. Just remember to be mindful of the rules & fees regarding the use of the range.
Ski Jumping: Let the little ones take part in the thrill of ski jumping with the mini ski jump at the Centre. There are even ski jumping camps that run throughout the winter—free of charge!
Snow biking: Thought that biking was only a summer sport? Think again! Snow biking is welcome on single track and groomed trails. Before heading out onto the snow, make sure you read the Centre’s Snow Biking Info Sheet
Winter Disc Golf: Biking might not be the only sport that crosses over nicely into winter. The Nordic Centre has a 9-hole disc golf course that operates throughout the winter. Just remember to bring your own discs!
Ice Skating: Strap on some skates and enjoy a true Canadian winter pastime. Skate rentals are available.

After a day out in the snow, head back to at the Canmore Mountain Lodge, where a cozy room and a warm meal (courtesy of Chez Francois, our delicious onsite restaurant) await you.
