Alberta Parks Home


  • In 1988, Alberta hosted the world for the Winter Olympics in Calgary.
  • The Canmore Nordic Centre was the venue for all cross-country ski and biathlon events.
  • Over time, changing technology and standards meant the Canmore Nordic Centre was no longer able to host international events.
  • In 2004, the Government of Alberta committed to bringing the Canmore Nordic Centre back to full international standards.
  • The renewal was also planned to improve the recreational experience for everyone who uses Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park.
  • In January 2008, the final phase of the multi-year renewal was completed.
