Came to Canmore to ride these trails and wasn't disappointed. This was in April and most of the upper (above the day lodge) trails were still covered in snow - but the bottom trails are great. You have to work for your downhill sections which is bice but the trails are well built and labelled. The maps can be a... More

Highly recommend this facility for the many trails and wonderful scenery. Trails are relatively well kept and you can most always find a quiet loop to yourself.

The trails and stadium were always groomed to the best of natures and people's combined abilities! The lodge has easy access for all abilities and is well laid... More

We visited the Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park in late March. The Canadian cross-country ski qualifiers were going on at the same time. Some of the advanced runs were closed but, fortunately, we are far from advanced skiers. We rented skis, boots and poles from the on-site ski store. It was an easy process and the equipment was in great... More

While some friends tell me they are "intimidated" by the fine athletes who regularly train here, I enjoy cross-country skiing here. The trails are well-maintained, it is inexpensive and it has a friendly feel.The sports shop has good rentals and knowledgeable staff, for when we have out of town guests. Very good private lessons, too.
