Canadian Birkebeiner Society

7240 82 Avenue NW Edmonton AB T6B 0G1

The Canadian Birkebeiner is a three-day celebration of cross country skiing and Nordic legends. It is Western Canada’s Premier Nordic Ski Event and one of only three Birkebeiner Loppets in the world, with Norway and the USA hosting the other two.
Started in 1985, the Birkie continues the tradition of honouring perseverance, courage and fortitude…as well as lots of Nordic Fun for the whole family! Join us for family, recreational and competitive cross country ski events.
Day One: Pre-Event Activities – Opening Ceremonies, Nordic Fair and Registration Package Pickup
Day Two: Ski Events and Vikings’ Feast
Day Three: Birkie Sunday Family Event
