Canada Olympic Park, or COP, was a major venue in the 1988 Olympic Winter Games and is the only place within Calgary’s city limits to go downhill skiing and snowboarding.
Managed by WinSport Canada, the park has discovery programs that introduce people of all ages to skiing and snowboarding. An advanced superpipe welcomes more advanced practitioners, and there are more than two kilometres of groomed cross-country ski trails.
The park also has an Olympic bobsleigh/luge track, which visitors can take runs on after receiving some training from the professionals.
It’s not a winter-only facility though, in the summer there’s mountain biking on 25 kilometres of trails, while thrill seekers have a zip line that they can throw themselves off of: the horrifying starting point is the top of the ski jump tower.
There’s also an outdoor climbing wall, Eurobungy (a kind of trampoline bungy cord contraption) and mini-golf.
Canada Olympic Park is just off of the Trans-Canada Highway on the western edge of the city.
