The Norseman has been a staple in the Calgary outdoor community for over 40 years. It was opened by Norwegian immigrants, and has been providing the best knowledge, equipment and staff over the decades. Since then, our passion for the community and outdoors has helped us transform and grow, and we now specialize in cross country skiing, hiking and climbing.
Our cross country ski roots are important to us, and we do our best to honour them by offering personalized service, and education. Whether you are a beginner or an expert skier, an ice climber or an ultralight backpacker, or you are interested in Nordic skiing or light touring, we would be happy to help you find the perfect skiing gear or equipment for your next adventure.
From the beginning our focus has been to provide the best knowledge, equipment, staff and customer service. Our passion for the community and the outdoors has transformed us into a store that emphasizes education as much as outdoor equipment. Through our experienced staff and community commitment, we continue to serve the highest quality gear, XC ski lessons, waxing clinics, workshops, info sessions, equipment and ski rentals.
Come on by to check out our products, rent some equipment to give it a try, or just to talk about your next outdoor adventure.
