Seven Places to Go Cross-Country Skiing in Calgary

Seven Places to Go Cross-Country Skiing in Calgary


Cross-country is one of the most accessible and popular Nordic sports. Since you aren't relying on gravity (like in downhill skiing), your momentum and speed is entirely dependent on your body's strength and stride. You can even get the kiddos out there on skis to make it a local and fun family activity.

You don't even have to leave the city limits to get out there for a good ski. We are excited to share with you SEVEN places in our gorgeous city of ours, Calgary: 

1. Shaganappi Point Golf Course
