The Canmore Nordic Center is located above the town of Canmore, approximately 80 km west of Calgary, Alberta. If you're a competitive rider looking for challenge, this is the place for you. As the former host of the cross-country and biathlon events during the 1988 Winter Olympics, it provides an endless collection of trails. Since the trails were designed for cross-country skiers, the level of difficulty varies from intermediate to expert. Cross-country skiers need a mixture of uphill, downhill, and level terrain, so these trails are very rolling in nature. Beginning at the day lodge, you have options that very from 1.6 miles to 31 miles or more. Since the trails are designed to provide loops of differing lengths, you can create almost endless diversity by linking up the various options. Their Nordic connection also provides the added benefit of a one-way designation for the trail system. This provides a suitable option for the rider that simply must ride on the edge of control.

Canmore is certainly a biking town - there are lots of places to ride on the roads and trails alike. Just a short trip from town is the Canmore Nordic Center with many trails - paved, double track and single track. We did the 5 km orange loop (the most popular) and had a great time. It was a little more technical than we were ready for especially due to the light rainstorm causing wet roots, but had a terrific time anyway. (We did have to resort to Hike a Bike in a few spots because the trail exceeded our skills.)
