Come cheer on the athletes!! Catch the exciting start and finishes in the stadium, or encourage them along the course. Check out the course maps for details. Or ask a course marshall where the best and safest places are to watch the action on race day.
Here are some links that will help you prepare better, and also give you tips on what else there is to do in Canmore.
Canmore Nordic Centre
It has a day lodge which has ample place to sit, relax, warm-up, and to have lunch. Bring your own lunch, or use the food outlet that serves soups, chilis, burger, fries etc.
Come and bring your own skis, or rent a fat bike for the day to explore all the trails that are still open to the public while the races are ongoing, bring a sled for the little ones. Lots of things to do.
Getting to the Venue
Although there is lots of parking up at the Nordic Centre, we would recommend to take the bus to get up during the weekend, as it will be very busy.
The Roam Bus is Canmore’s regional/local bus system, you can find the schedule on their website:
It is not only an option to get to the Nordic Centre, but also a way to leave the car behind and use it while you’re in the Bow Valley.
The bus makes several stops between Three Sisters, downtown and the Nordic Centre, and also connects Canmore to Banff.
Please note that the roam bus is connecting to the Nordic Centre during the weekends only.
Restaurants in Town
As a resort town, Canmore has a vibrant restaurant scene, and there are many options to choose from. From family dinners to gourmet cuisine, there is something for everybody.
