The Ski Tour Canada is set to start this coming Tuesday, attracting World Cup athletes from around the globe!  The Tour starts with skate sprints in Jacques Cartier Park, and then heads to Montreal, Quebec City, and Canmore for a total of 8 stages.  We’re proud to say that the Canadian team will include a number of local athletes: Patrick Stewart-Jones, Katherine Stewart-Jones, Simon Lapointe, and Sophie Carrier-Laforte.  Go Canada!

Here's a video to give you a better idea of what to expect!

The qualifiers on Tuesday start at 11:15am and heats run at 1:45pm.  We hope to see you out there to witness this exciting event!  For more information, check out the event website.

Team Russia was the first to arrive.  They're seen here at Nakkertok Nordic, which will be a training site for the racers.
