Ryan, Madi, Dana, Waters, Kate, Dustin, Brendan, Matt, Jordan, all went to the 2017 Nordic World Cup in Quebec City! We had a blast. It was a great way to start our spring break. We also stayed with skier friend Lance Mckenney, and other SLU students Erika Florian, and Christine Corcoran. Coach Liz, Erin Perryman and Phil Marshall were also there, along with the Townsend Family! Having the world cup so close by, so many fellow skiers and Americans filled the crowds! GO USA!
Most of us stayed right in the city at the Best Western Plus, in two 6 person suites. We could walk to and from the old city in about 10min or less. I do not recommend bringing your car if you don't have to. Parking is a big pain. The races were held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and were all on one section of the streets in the old city, the same area as the world cup in 2016.
