The Canmore Nordic Centre, site of the Nordic skiing events for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, will receive a $16.5 million upgrade in support of the Calgary-Canmore World Cup Cross-Country Skiing event bid for 2005. Gene Zwozdesky, Minister of Community Development, responsible for sport, recreation and parks, and Janis Tarchuk, MLA for Banff-Cochrane, made the announcement at the Canmore Nordic Centre today.

Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park, located in Kananaskis Country about one hour west of Calgary, accommodated the cross-country and biathlon facilities constructed for the Calgary Olympics, and includes 70 kms of groomed trails for advanced, intermediate and novice skiers. Other facilities include a paved roller ski-training loop, mountain biking trails, and a major disc-golfing course, making this a popular year-round destination.
