The Caledonia Nordic Ski Club will host three major events over the next two years.
They are the 2023 Nordiq Canada Selection Trials from January 18-21, 2023, the FIS Para Biathlon World Championships from March 3-11, 2024, and the FIS Para Nordic World Cup from March 12-18, 2024.
The Caledonia Ski Club says the legacy of snow making equipment from the 2019 World Para Nordic Skiing Championships has helped expand grants from the provincial government and Northern Development Initiatives Trust. In addition to that, the club received a “very generous donation” from the Rickbeil family.
“I can personally attest to the event experience this community puts on, having been a part of the world class event delivered by Caledonia Nordic Ski Club, the City of Prince George and the passionate army of volunteers when Prince George hosted the 2019 Para Nordic World Championships. And although I definitely admit it was the chilliest World Champs I have been part of, it was also certainly one of the best ever,” says High Performance Director for Nordiq Canada Katie Boyd.
Tourism Prince George anticipates the economic impact for Prince George for the three events will be in excess of $4.7 million.
