The Alberta World Cup Society is excited and proud to announce that Canmore will host the International Paralympic Committee Para-Nordic World Cup on December 7-18, 2017.
With over 100 of the world’s best para-athletes, this international world-class event will take place at the world-renowned Canmore Nordic Provincial Park. Para-Nordic skiing is a sport for participants with physical impairment (classified in three categories – sitting, standing and athletes with visual challenges). Most athletes compete in both cross country and biathlon races. This IPC event is a major stepping stone for Canada’s Paralympic athletes as they prepare for the 2018 Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
