I can't tell you about all the hiking, biking, and skiing. What I can tell you is this: It is stunning! I don't know much about the wildlife so I didn't want to risk any solo trip I couldn't handle. Instead, I took as many pics as I possibly could without making anyone nervous. I was delighted just from the... More

Love, love, love the mountain biking at the nordic centre. First, it's free! How awesome is that!!! Then it's rooty and rocky, with some tough uphill slogs, but the downhills have flow, challenge and serious type-one fun. There are so many trails there, that each time it is a new adventure and you can shake it up a bit. And... More

First off, for those reviewing bike rentals, Trail Sports is an independent shop based at the centre.... The Nordic Centre is amazing in the Summer with a whole heap of single and double track from flowy to technical. Not much for the downhill mtb crowd, but good for everyone else. And it's FREE... Yes, free... All of these trails maintained... More

Riding was great, the bikes are well fitted. We had an accident happen to the bike which was odd, and possibly a fluke. The non-management staff we dealt with could have been better, but the managers made everything alright. We would go back again. Read on for details. My Girlfriend and I went to the Nordic Centre and rented two... More

There are nearly countless trails that can be followed in this park. It has the luxury of being an Olympic site and the Nordic Training Centre. The trails are well marked and easy to follow. You can be inspired by the athletes training even in the summer.

Make the trek to Canmore to do the Grassi Lake hike. A moderately challenging hike with many rewarding views.

Right next to the water. Brought the bike back 2hr 15min charged for 2hrs. I highly recommend these guys. Very professional.

Yes, there is disc golf in Canmore! We finished eighteen holes in under two hours. Park provides fantastic signage for fairways and location of holes (really baskets). Tee boxes are well maintained. If you need the restroom, keep in mind that it closes around 5pm. It is beautiful out in Canmore.. just watch out for the mosquitoes! Happy frolfing! Oh... More
