  • Went down on a Saturday for the tube park. Found it a little expensive but well worth it. Two hours for 27 (adult) of sledding. Was a lot of fun and found it to be a good system. Had a little shed tha...  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.
  • 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.
  • We love this facility and have adopted their motto, "Better than yesterday!" into our family lingo when we're learning something new like ice skating. Our kids (elementary school age) have taken ski and snowboarding lessons and while sore the next day, they have loved it! For the past (2) years when have gone tubing which was a blast for all ages! I shouldn't share our secret but we found Christmas Eve to be a quiet day with almost no lines. We'll be back!
  • My kids went for first time ski lessons. Trainers are one the best. They made sure every kid was comfortable. Trails are as wide as it could be. All lifts were working good. Staff is well trained. Calgarians are so lucky to have this world class facility at their door step.
  • One of the nicer rinks in town. Nice food concession. Tables up top to work, nice fairly warm seating. And usually lots of other activities around to distract parents and younger siblings. Skate sharpening.

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
