Canmore was a fading town until the Calgary Winter Olympics when it hosted the Nordic events.

Since then, this mountain town, located at an altitude of 1300 m, has become a major tourist destination. Within the town is the Canmore Nordic Centre, a multi-hectare park where the biathlon, cross-country skiing, and Nordic combined events were held in 1988. It offers ski and mountain bike courses for all levels of ability in a beautiful wilderness setting.
