Nestled deep within the heart of the Bow Valley, the CNCPP is surrounded by the Rocky Mountains making it a special and exciting place to ski.

This world-class facility was originally built to host the Nordic events of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games and to this day hosts World Cup’s and other large international events.

The extensive network at the Canmore Nordic Center Provincial Park offers mostly intermediate and advanced trails but also offers some green trails for beginners. Advanced skiers will find “WOOP” inducing descents and downright depressing climbs. Beginners will find some more reasonable terrain on trails like the Banff trails and finally those looking for a nice middle ground will feel right at home on some of our Intermediate trails like Meadowview. There’s a little bit for everyone.

During the winter the Canmore Nordic Center also has some other activities to offer if Cross Country Skiing isn’t your cup of tea. The Nordic Center has 15+kms of fat biking specific trails groomed by CAMBA (Canmore and Area Mountain Biking Association), an ice skating rink and a nine hole disc golf course. Fat Biking and walking/snowshoeing is prohibited on the Cross Country Ski Trails.
