Team NWT

Get ready to support Team NWT’s snowboarders at their home Arctic Winter Games in March 2018!

NWT Snowboard’s athletes will join competitors from Alaska, Yukon, Northern Alberta, Nunavut, Nunavik, Greenland, Scandinavia and Russia when the Arctic Winter Games begin in Fort Smith, NWT, on March 18, 2018.

Our Territorial Trials for snowboarding will be held in Fort Smith from January 18-20. To register for Territorial Trials, you must complete the process on the Sport North website by the deadline of December 15, 2017. This includes payment of a $100 fee to Sport North – see the link above for details.

Registration for Territorial Trials is only complete when your registration, your payment and a waiver form have been received by Sport North. If you have any questions about this process or need more information, contact Sport North: 867-669-8336 or

Please be sure to read Sport North’s handbook for full details explaining how the various processes related to Territorial Trials and Arctic Winter Games work. In particular, please note:

Sport North coordinates transportation for all athletes, coaches, and chaperones. Sport North will not be responsible for travel costs of any Team NWT participant who misses the departure travel arrangements to and from the Territorial Trials.

Accommodation is not provided by Sport North but may be provided by the host community (for snowboarding, Fort Smith). Athletes should contact their Sport North regional coordinator for more information. Coaches and chaperones must reside in the same residence as their athletes. Each participant is responsible for their own meals.
