IBU Cups 6 and 7 are in Canmore, Alberta and I am here as well to volunteer as an official. I flew in from Vancouver late last night and will be working in Stadium, Course, Range and Timing over the course of the two events.
Canmore is a beautiful town and a great place to host a biathlon competition. It is colder than Whistler, but the forecast is good with sunny skies and moderate temperatures – definitely warmer than it is in Kontiolahti!
I am staying with my aunt and uncle who live very close to the Canmore Nordic Centre, which makes those early morning starts a little more tolerable.
The IBU website has a nice story about the events, with some spectacular photos. I must say I am more than a little jealous about the view from the Canmore biathlon stadium.
