- The World Para Nordic Skiing Championships are held every two years after the Paralympic Winter Games and represent the pinnacle of achievement for para Nordic athletes. These athletes, men and women, who are grouped into three classes for competition (sitting, standing, and visually impaired) will compete in four cross country skiing and four biathlon medal events over a period of 10 days. They truly embody the best of Paralympic sport and the Paralympic movement and will guarantee to astonish and excite the community about the possibilities of Paralympic sport.
- Prince George will host approximately 140 athletes from 20 different Nations, over 200 coaches and officials, and expects thousands of visitors to attend over the duration of the World Championships. Following less than 12 months after the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang Korea, the 2019 World Para Nordic Skiing Championships will be an exciting follow-up for the 114 contested world championship medals and represents an exciting opportunity for the IPC to continue growing the sport around the world.
