  • We are novice skiers and this place was perfect. 15 minutes from downtown Calgary. Cost was great for a family. Most locals seem to have their own skis so the rental staff, especially Bill was great a...  more »
  • Canada Olympic Park does a great job in grooming the hill. I enjoy going there for 2 or 3 hours to go snowboarding. The group lessons are rarely a problem (they are well controlled) during the day. It...  more »
  • There is so much to do at the park. I have done the Dry bobsled track, Zip-line and Luge. I would recommend doing all if you can and have the money. Its not the cheapest place to go and do activity's ...  more »

  • It was first time skiing for us. They took very good care while providing rentals of shoe & blades. The place was not much crowded. We had great fun. We took three hours rental and the RFID card can be reloaded for next time as well before we come. Highly recommended place, if you want to try skiing / board skating near Calgary. The tube park is available on selected days. For kids, they train very well and have experienced trainers.
  • Always super busy once there is snow so expect some longer wait times in line up to get in and grab your gear if you're renting. Great place for beginners (like myself, someone who hasn't skied in about 20 years). Other folks generally are awesome at letting you go your own pace as long as you aren't dangerous and getting in the way. Nice little cafeteria style area for food and drinks with prices that aren't ridiculous. Rental and admission prices are also quite reasonable. Tubing is also available. I did that last year as a date with my girlfriend while she was here from school for the holidays and it was a blast!
  • WinSport is the only ski hill within Calgary city limits. During the 1988 Winter Olympics it hosted ski jumping and other events. Now it has skiing and snowboarding with a couple chair lifts as well as luge and bobsleigh. There is also cross country skiing and ski lessons during the winter. In the summer there are hiking and mountain biking trails. The lodge is open year round and has decent food and a bar.
  • Nice place to ski or board when the conditions are good. They have a shop for stuff like clothing, goggles, and other accessories you may need. Food is average despite it being about the same price as the amazing food offered at actual ski resorts. Staff are friendly and it's a great place to be!
  • Comfortable viewing area-the seats are nice, and it isn't cold in the arena. Beautiful, new and we'll mantained facility. I enjoy watching my brother play hockey here. Only down side is the one rink only has chairs at the one end of the ice so it's difficult to see the play happening at the far end.
