“Great Orienteering - Less Well Executed”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We did the easy course. It was our 6 year olds first time Orienteering and we really enjoyed it, a great way to start the sport. Unfortunately the electronic controls weren't working, no worries, but then most of the old style orange punches were broken. The map we got from trail sports was just a photocopy rather than waterproof paper so quickly turned to mush in the rain. Only cost $3 mind.
Great facilities marred by poor delivery, decent maps, repaired punches and even turning on the electronic controls would quickly make this 5* for orienteering.

“Great Trails”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I have participated the the Rocky Mountain Soap Company Run in Canmore the past 3 years, all located at the Canmore Nordic Centre. The trail is clean and well maintained, the interior facilities are top notch. I hope to see all future races held at this location. There are great running, hiking and biking trails and amazing views of the Mountains. The only thing that could make this a better experience for me is if I actually lived in Canmore so I could enjoy thencentre every day!!
