Skate Canada International Primer, Part I



The first Skate Canada International was held in nearby Calgary in 1973. It was almost a clean sweep for Canadians, with the late, great Toller Cranston (men) and Lynn Nightingale (ladies) winning gold, and Louise Soper and Barry Soper (ice dance) taking silver. There was no pair competition until 1984.

Skate Canada International is expected to have an economic impact of $5.5 million on the city of Lethbridge.

Standing over 97 metres high, the Lethbridge Viaduct, commonly known as the High Level Bridge and completed in 1909, is the longest and highest steel trestle bridge in North America.
