The world’s best cross-country skiers are coming back to do battle on Canada’s Plains of Abraham this spring. Cross Country Ski de Fond Canada accepted an invitation by the International Ski Federation (FIS) to host the 2017 World Cup Finals on the historic landmark in Quebec City, March 17-19.
“We are obviously thrilled to bring elite cross-country skiing back to Canada,” said Shane Pearsall, chief executive officer, Cross Country Ski De Fond Canada. “Hosting major international events at home brings tremendous benefits to our athletes, the Nordic community and the economy of the host community. CCC prides itself on staging world-leading events with our partners, and we look forward to working with GESTEV to stage a safe and fair World Cup Finals for all nations involved.”
