You can rent skis/boots/poles for 2 hours and get a center day pass for about $30, and it is a great way to spend the afternoon. They also offer lessons. We arrived at 1:30 when others were leaving, so the courses were not too busy. The lodge is bright and warm, and has a cafeteria for drinks/snacks. A great workout... More

The Nordic Centre hosted cross-country skiing events in the 1988 Olympics. The trails and lodge are exactly what you'd expect from a world-class facility, and the $10 daily trail pass is an excellent value.

arrive early. After 10 the parking if full. Make sure you have all your gear, because equipment for sale is super expensive. We bought a season pass ($150 pp) so we don't have to wait for the opening at 9, Some trails are lit. Also some skating.

After years of watching this sport on TV I finally managed to have a shot myself. Having skied only a couple of times before, I was a little apprehensive, as my friend is a qualified ski instructor. I need not have worried though! After 5 mins I was away! Great place to try Nordi!

This park located just above town is a great place to xc ski in the winter with groomed trails to fit all skiing abilities. Skiing is not free unfortunately but still reasonable for what you get. In the summer there are mountain bike trails for all skill sets. There is a nice lodge to warm up in and hot food... More

Based upon my personal knowledge of 25+ Nordic Ski Areas I venture to state that Canmore Nordic Centre is the best place in Western Canada for a Nordic Skiing holiday--bar none. It has a great network of well maintained trails supplemented by snow making and over summer snow storage. The day lodge is large, comfortable, and even has hot showers.... More

Spent two wonderful days exploring the cross country trails at the Canmore Nordic Center. With barely any snow on the ground we were worried about the conditions, but were pleasantly surprised with what we found. They store snow all summer and make snow to provide an outstanding experience even when Mother Nature isn't cooperating. The day lodge was well laid... More

This is an amazing place and if you get a guide to take you around its even better, ours pointed our bear and wolf prints as well as showing us how to make a snow hole to sleep in and how to test snow for a possible avalanche. Awsome place.
