Who We Are!

Trail Sports is your Nordic ski and mountain bike specialists in retail, rental and instruction. Located at the Canmore Nordic Centre, site of the 1988 Olympic Winter Games and host to multiple world-cup events, Trail Sports is a five-minute drive from downtown Canmore (or you could bike there), 20 minutes from Banff and one hour from Calgary—the store is easy to access and staff is ready to assist. We love to see people on skis and bikes exploring the 65+ kilometres of well-maintained beginner to advanced trails right outside our door.
