CANMORE, ALBERTA November 15, 2021 – The world’s best para athletes are back in the Canadian Rockies, as the Canmore 2021 World Para Nordic Skiing World Cup returns to the Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park on December 4 – 12, 2021, hosted by the Alberta World Cup Society.
Canmore’s legacy of hosting premiere Nordic competitions has expanded in 2021, with the health and safety of all participants and the citizens of Alberta of utmost concern.
The Alberta World Cup Society has worked diligently with its stakeholders and the local, provincial, and federal health authority to create a comprehensive COVID-19 risk management plan. This year’s event is free to enter, with COVID-19 safety measures in place to safeguard public health. A free event livestream is also available on four race days during this year’s event. The Alberta World Cup Society’s mandate is to bring World Cup events to Canmore, and the 2021 event is the latest in a long tradition of promoting high calibre events in the Bow Valley. “We have an excellent track record of bringing World Cup Cross-Country Ski events to Canmore, having held 5 FIS World Cups and 2 Para-Nordic World Cups since the 2005 Alberta Centennial World Cup. Our facilities continue to be among the best in the world and we appreciate the hard work done by the Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park staff working with our event team to achieve the highest international standard of hosting excellence,” said Norbert Meier, Events Chair for the Alberta World Cup Society.
