About the Ski Resort

Located just 15 minutes from downtown Calgary, and situated at the gateway to the Rocky Mountains.

As the premiere site of the XV Olympic Winter Games in Calgary, Canada Olympic Park is perhaps the most visible legacy of the 1988 Games to visitors and Calgary alike - truly a one-of-a-kind attraction.

Calgary's premiere recreational and sport learning centre is unique from most Olympic venues in that it continues to function as a multi-purpose competition; training and recreation area designed for year-round use by both athletes and the general public.

In the winter, Canada Olympic Park is home to more than 290,000 ski and snowboard visits, and features lessons and programs for people of all ages and abilities. C.O.P. also offers introductory programs for the public to experience the sports of bobsleigh, skeleton and luge.

Included in the C.O.P. skiing and snowboarding experience is a FIS-sanctioned Superpipe, which was added to the Park in 2003. Recognized by the snowboarding community as the next level in pipe riding progression and the only one of its kind in North America within city limits, the Superpipe has walls reaching 15 feet in height. Accompanied by a world-class terrain park, the Superpipe answers all the needs of competitive, advanced and recreational riders. The facility also provides Canada's aspiring Olympians another place to prepare to compete with the world's best at international and Olympic competitions.

Canada Olympic Park has all the amenities that one needs for winter sports from the largest rental and retail shop in Alberta, to professionally certified instructors. Features like free parking, night skiing, adult race leagues, & the large cross country facilitie keep this area busy with enthusiastic atheletes all winter long.

Canada Olympic Park also boasts North America's largest Olympic Hall of Fame and Museum. The crown jewel of the complex, the Museum features Olympic footage in the theatre, two floors of displays and exhibits and a spectacular catering venue on the third floor overlooking the Park - perfect for your private function.

A CODA facility, Canada Olympic Park aims to be the most innovative sport, recreation and tourist facility in the world.
