Visited here for zipline and summer bobsleigh package, which we had pre booked. Unfortunately, before we arrived in Calgary, my wife suffered a broken rib and thought it unwise for her to participate in these activities. We notified Winsport a couple of days earlier of this and they said a refund / credit could be arranged when we arrived there.... More

Have skied here in the past many times. It's a great hill if you just want to get out and have a leisurely day of skiing. They have a great ski school available for anyone interested in lessons. Can get crowded at times but you have to take the good with the bad and it's a hill to ski on... More

There are 2 great experiences at COP that you should take advantage of and those are the bobsleigh and luge. Now if you suffer from back or neck problems don't attempt either as they can be a good jolt to the body. The G forces on the body during the bobsleigh are quite a bit for the body to deal... More

In the summer, the mountain biking is a lot of fun so is the Skyline Luge (a bit expensive but still a fun experience) But in terms of skiing, it's terrible. If you are learning then it's an alright hill, if you have a learner in the family but some more experienced thrill seekers, chances are they will get bored... More

I'm not at all an adrenaline junkie, but I must admit that I'm glad I experienced this. The staff at WinSport were great, but I did feel as though there could've been a bit more attention to safety and explanation of the effects of G-forces on the body. I sat in the 2nd spot on the bobsled and that is... More

Considering it is in the middle of a city, and is very busy, the staff does a great job of keeping the place humming along. My grandson had a group discovery snowboard lesson for 90 minutes, with all equipment and lift ticket included for less than $70.00. My daughter and I were snowboarding for @five hours, and considering the huge... More

Staff was great, preparation I felt was a little lacking. The ride itself was VERY rough. Felt like we were alternately being in a car crash, or being put in a clothes dryer. I am a young, healthy person with no pre-existing neck issues and I can barely move my neck 1 day later from all of the being thrown... More

I read about the Olympic Park that it would be a "must see" for Calgary, considering there isn't too much to see in this City anyway. I went out there as the 88 Olympics have been a captivating event, particularly with the great movie "Cool Runnings" in mind and the journey of the Jamaican bobsleigh team back then. You can...

My partner spent an afternoon here skiing for the first time. There were no instructors available on the day so pre book lessons if required in advance. Getting kitted up and signing waivers was quick and easy. There is a viewing area outside for relatives / friends to watch if desired and views from indoor are also available. We went... More
