The Alberta World Cup (December 13, 15 and 16, 2012) promises to provide first class entertainment for spectators at the event - in part because of a number of enhancements introduced for this year's event:
- Video screens around the stadium will be larger than in previous events, and carry information about the races, as well as the actual race broadcast itself
- There will be a new Spectator Zone with a stage, live entertainment, stadium announcers on stage, a "KidsZone"(sponsored by Trail Sports), and risers for better spectator viewing.
- Trail Sports will be on hand to provide ski lessons and other fun activity for kids (and adults)
- A Christmas Tree and other decorations will add a festive holiday atmosphere
Please do not bring pets to the races.
