Welcome to the North America’s First World Cup Night Sky Village!

 

SOLD OUT! North America’s First World Cup Night Sky Village sells out in record time.

CANMORE—One of Canada’s greatest cross-country skiers, Sara Renner, will joined by a village of winter enthusiast for a night under the stars, and a wake-up call for the final World Cup cross-country ski race when the Ski Tour Canada rolls into Canmore, Alta.

The Night Sky Village pays historical homage to the Nordic sports’ Scandinavian roots, and the most iconic Nordic ski races in the world – the Homenkollen Ski Festival – where for almost a century spectators have taken to the forests for a night of winter camping, weiner roasting and star gazing culminating with a tent side wake up by a World Cup ski race. On Friday, March 11, Renner is creating a once in a lifetime opportunity for Canadians to re-define our Nordic culture, by living a truly unique 24-hour Nordic spectator experience with a night of winter camping under the stars.

“Canmore is a community that lives winter, and winter defines us,” said Renner.  “We celebrate heavy snowfall warnings, frosty eyelashes, powder days and above all, Nordic skiing. I have witnessed incredible tent villages while racing at the birthplace of our sport in Norway. I can’t think of a better way or a more beautiful place to grow our winter loving culture.”

The Ski Tour Canada: FIS World Cup Finale in Canmore will be exceptional for many reasons. History will be made, as the World’s best cross country skiers vie for the coveted crystal globes awarded for the first time in North America. And a Canadian legacy of outdoor winter adventure has been born – The Night Sky Village.
