The Alberta World Cup Society is excited and proud to announce that Canmore will host the International Paralympic Committee Para-Nordic World Cup on December 7-18, 2017.

The AWCS has successfully hosted FIS Cross-Country World Cups in 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, and most recently the Ski Tour Canada 2016. In December 2013, the AWCS hosted the 2013 IPC Para-Nordic World Cup; we want the 2017 IPC Para-Nordic World Cup; to be even bigger and better – and we need your help!

With over 100 of the world’s best para-athletes, this international world-class event will take place at the world-renowned Canmore Nordic Centre Provincial Park. Para-Nordic skiing is a sport for participants with physical impairment (classified in three categories – sitting, standing and athletes with visual challenges). Most athletes compete in both cross country and biathlon races. This IPC event is a major stepping stone for Canada’s Paralympic athletes as they prepare for the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

We could not host these events without the generous support of our partners. We have various levels of sponsorship and unique sponsor properties that we can customize to help you achieve your corporate or individual goals. We will ensure your commitment is recognized at the event and in the community. If you’re interested in being a sponsor, please contact clewis@albertaworldcup.com
