Welcome all to the 2012 IBU Cups #6 and #7, scheduled for February 8 – 16, 2012. Competitions will be held at the Canmore Nordic Centre, just outside the beautiful Rocky Mountain town of Canmore, Alberta, Canada.
The Canmore Nordic Centre is North America’s premier Nordic venue, sporting 30 electronic Kurvinen targets, 24 permanent wax cabins plus wax testing area, extensive skiing and paved roller ski trails, a top-notch snow making system and lighting for night skiing and shooting. Since 2005, Canmore has hosted several National Championships in Nordic and Biathlon events, several North American Cup events, the 2009 World Youth Junior Biathlon Championships and three Cross Country Skiing World Cups.
“A picture paints a thousand words” – and this certainly is true, especially in trying to capture the beauty of the Nordic Centre’s surroundings. So, rather than words, we invite you to view this video. We’re sure you’ll be impressed.
The organizers of the 2012 IBU Cup look forward to adding this year’s events to the Canmore Nordic Centre’s legacy of successful sport competitions.
