Nor-Am Cup

Who: Canada’s future ski stars compete against other up-and-coming athletes from the USA and around the world. Competitors include team members from Canada’s alpine, para-alpine and ski cross teams as well as provincial ski team athletes. 

What’s at stake: At Nor-Am Cup races, Canada’s aspiring ski stars get the chance to compete at an international level. Nor-Am races allow athletes to prepare mentally and technically for World Cup racing. The season-long Nor-Am series comes to a head at the Nor-Am finals in March (February for para-alpine). In alpine, the top two overall competitors for each discipline at the end of the finals win a World Cup spot for the following season in that event.

Quick fact: Canada has won every overall Nor-Am Cup in women’s ski cross since the first Nor-Am ski cross season in 2009-10.
