Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were a group from bc, alberta, Ontario and Switzerland.
No one to my knowledge complained because we didn't want to bring the bride and groom down.
In my opinion you can't improve if no one tells you the truth.
No thaught was given for wemen of all ages wearing high heels.
Second,at the cost of the buffet it should include hot or at the least warm food.
As the father of the bride I personally was embarrassed that my family and friends would be served cool to cold food. Only the roast beef was warm on the outside edge.
This was the third daughter to wed and I can assure you the food was a decent temperature.
The rest of the venue was amazing and grateful for the herd of elk that came to bless the wedding.

We came to do a hike , and took an easy route which was well marked, then ate at the restaurant when we came back. We walked up to the centre from town centre, which was a lovely walk. Food was nice with generous portions, and their are exhibits from the olympics all around, which make it a very interesting place. Only thing that was missing was bike hire at the location.

The Nordic Centre Provincial Park at Canmore offers a unique look at the training of Olympic athletes - particularly Nordic racing. The area is beautiful and obviously steeped in teaching visitors about the rich Olympic history of the sport and the venue. We loved it there- and the peanut butter cookie from the snack bar was AWESOME!

An amazing place to visit, train or simply cross country ski to the Banff boarder. The trails are nicely kept and people were respectful.

Three of us signed up for a cross country ski lesson today and we were fortunate to have Brad coach us and give us a great lesson. Patrick was very helpful getting us set up!

Brad is clearly highly experienced, but of greater importance, he was so patient (we're novices) and made the experience so much fun .

He asked what our goals were and then methodically took us through exercises including "tips".

We thought he was fabulous and within in hour, we all began to feel more confident.

With his coaching, we feel we will be able to ski with better control.
As a result, we'll definitely get out for skiing more often and enjoy it.

We highly recommend taking a lesson, ask for Brad!

What an amazing place! A wonderful playground for cross country skiing and biathlon enthusiasts. Here you can enjoy nature while practising your skiing. There are plenty of things to do other than skiing. My 3.5-year-old daughter enjoyed ice skating, snow playing and exploring around the complex.
As you'd soon learn, the facilities were built 20 years ago for the Winter Olympics so an upgrade might be soon due. Despite all of that, who stays in the lodge for too long! Many trails to explore with excellent grooming. The knowledgeable staff at the rental centre will be able to guide you with your equipment.
If you paid attention, you might spot the Canadian national athletes around the centre. Very inspiring team!

We passed through the Nordic centre en route to a cycle through the mountains. We stopped to hire bear spray, and check out any up time date information of trails and safety. The staff were very helpful, and advised the best routes for our level of experience and gear, and also highlighted routes which were closed due to building works. Unfortunately, once we got half way sling the trail we were advised to take, the path was closed due to wildlife activity, so we had to quickly reroute ourself through a safe path.

Nice hike to Grassy Lakes
Price for family of 5 was only $15 so that was a bonus
Was able to rent bear spray which was better than having to buy
The trail
Is uphill. We brought snacks and took our time.
Great views from the top!
