Get ready for snowboarding at the 2019 Canada Winter Games!
Red Deer, Alberta, will host the 14th edition of the Canada Winter Games from February 15 until March 3, 2019. Snowboarders will be joined by athletes from 18 different sports, culminating in the largest multi-sport event to be hosted in Alberta since the 1988 Olympics in Calgary.
Canada Snowboard is excited to see aspiring riders from our nation’s 13 provinces and territories competing in the following Olympic disciplines:
Parallel Giant Slalom (PGS)
For participants, this will be among their first opportunities to test themselves against the best young snowboarders in our country. The Canada Winter Games are considered a Stage 4 event in our Long Term Athlete Development pathway, and rank behind only the Canada Snowboard Nationals in terms of importance for this development group.
Canada Snowboard would like to recognize the Alberta Snowboard Association. Their support, dedication and organizational commitment will be major factors in the success of these games.

Held once every two years, alternating between winter and summer, the Canada Games represent the highest level of national competition for up and coming Canadian athletes. The Games have been hosted in every province at least once since their inception in Quebec City during Canada’s Centennial in 1967. The Games are proud of their contribution to Canada’s sport development system in addition to their lasting legacy of sport facilities, community pride and national unity.
The organization of the Canada Games is made possible thanks to the contribution and support of the Government of Canada, provincial/territorial governments, host municipalities and the Canada Games Council.
