Re: Cancellation of the 2022 Alberta Winter Games

Dear Members,

I regret to inform you that the 2022 Alberta Winter Games will not be proceeding. The Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation Branch of Culture and Status of Women was in discussions with a potential host community prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, they were unable to reach a formal agreement with a host community prior to the pandemic disruption.

Given the time required to prepare for an Alberta Winter Games, the prolonged effect of COVID-19, and the number of sport events that have been cancelled or postponed, the decision was made to return to Alberta Winter Games planning when appropriate in the future. I want to assure you that the cancellation is not an indication that the Alberta Winter or Summer Games are not continuing in the future. This decision was not budget related.

If you have any question, please give me a call.

Best regards,

Patrick Gillespie

President of Alberta Alpine Ski Association
