  • We went in the summer and I think recommended for those who want to do some of the activities that they offer. Did the descent of luge, which is very quiet, but fun. The movement was quiet. We wouldn't drive. As we left the Heritage Park and this way the bus seemed complicated, we can take a taxi, but to go back to the center of the city we took a bus without problems.

  • I wish winsport would really but some effort into their biking trails. I've been biking here for 2 years. They started to "rebuild" a trail called double jeopardy and they haven't re opened it for A YEAR if they put some effort into their trails all the trails would be enjoyable and built! Not to mention their food is WAY too over priced. I believe WinSport could improve by hiring some staff that actually work and not watch YouTube all day (Half of the staff don't).
  • Arenas are pretty nice, big dressing rooms and showers, ice initially feels slow to me, but after a bit it isn't noticeable. Mountain biking is mediocre, can be fun but most technical or advanced features have been removed over the years. For skiing, the terrain park is usually pretty good. The man made snow can be fairly abrasive if you crash.
  • Great place to visit summer or winter, especially with people from out of town. Very interactive, live hockey games often, it also sells a HUGE poutine for less than 10$ (feeds 3), and it's licenced.
  • Just saw Gabriel Iglesias' show in the winsport arena, the show itself was fantastic but what ruined the experience was the fact that the majority of seating was just uncomfortable small chairs (about 14" wide) set up side by side (and zip tied together!!) on the floor of a hockey arena. I weigh about 130lbs and so does the person I was with, even with our pretty narrow builds, our shoulders were still overlapping with the strangers around us. Absolutely NO personal space, I couldn't even grab my phone from my pocket. A couple inches between chairs would have made a huge difference, but to zip tie chairs without armrests or enough space to comfortably seat a person is ridiculous. Not to mention I paid $60 to stare at the back of someone's head. I can guarantee I will avoid any venues that are held here in the future simply due to the fact that the management can not even provide adequate seating arrangements to paying customers.
  • ★ Over the past few years I have been very disappointed in the way Winsport handles their customer service and their bike park. The medical team is extremely rude and have little knowledge on what mountain bike trails should look like. Their website is not updated frequently making it very difficult to know what is open on the hill. The hill's trail crew doesn't know anything about mountain bike trail building causing the trails to be in extremely rough shape for the entire year. Winsport's mountain bike trails are opened 3 months after they are dry and ready to be worked on and always have problems that are never addressed the entire season. Things like wood features falling apart as you ride them, rounded off lips and mangled corners are only a few of this bike parks many problems. This hills rain and lightning policies are also very unreasonable, a light sprinkle of rain or lightning within a 50km radius causes the hill to be shut down. Winsport needs to improve their customer service, hire a hard working trail crew, and maintain their trails to attract more customers to this venue that does have potential in the right hands. Over all I would never recommend coming to Winsport to anybody.
