Here, Homegrown Talent Makes National Legends.
The Original Home of Alberta Ski Racing.
Ski racing and Mount Norquay go hand in hand; it’s impossible to think of Mt Norquay without its deep connection to Alberta’s ski racing circles.
Some of Canada’s biggest names in ski racing have made their mark on the world stage, from starting out on our training tracks.
From the first races held here (the first slalom courses were set in 1929), we’ve been a hub for generations of ski athletes – and our slopes continue to be the training ground for some of the brightest, up-and-coming talent of pro alpine racing.
Over the years, Norquay has played host to major events in the ski racing world, including the 1937, 1940, and 1948 Dominion Ski Championships. For 25 years, Norquay was also the location for major intercollegiate ski competitions for universities from across the US and Canada, for alpine racing and ski jumping. In 1972, Norquay hosted a World Cup in giant slalom and slalom.
With 190 acres of skiing and a vertical drop of 1,650 feet, ski racers return here every season to train for the Olympics and the World Cup, and we’re always happy to see them.
