If you're starting to learn skiing or snowboarding, Winsport is great for learning. The staff are friendly and the hills are not intimidating. My kids went to the very top on day 1, no fear. But if you're an expert, then this is not for you. The prices are reasonable too. Rental equipment are in good shapes. Only things I'm... More

I have two young children. I registered them for 5 days ski lessons. At the end of January and beginning of February 2014, the temperature dipped to -30 C but COP did not cancel the classes. I am not sure how a person with normal mental health expects young children to ski in such a temperature. I believe it was... More

The last time I came here was when I was 5 years old, and it had been a haunting memory since then. My dad had put me in ski lessons, and my instructor had a very heavy accent and seemed very mean. And to make it worse, it was so crowded there on the bunny hill I couldn't even see... More

We came here by chance but wished we could have stayed longer and done more. We did the luge, and it was a great and fast experience. We have done what I think is the original luge in New Zealand, but this was better. The track was smoother, drivers were better and it felt safer. Wish we could have done... More

We have been here many times for various activities. There is a very exciting and challenging ropes course. The zip line is also fun and exciting. We have been geo-caching there as well, which was quite the adventure. We liked the mini-golfing there too.

I don't ski or snowboard, but I signed my 12-year-old up for a 1.5 hour snowboard lesson. Instructors were all FANTASTIC. There are four slopes (called "carpets" here) which are perfect for beginners. The park really gets you in an "Olympic spirit." It's a non-intimidating ski/snowboard venue for beginners and experts. Staff are all way above average--friendly, helpful, and always... More

We were going to pop here and just have a quick look around. Four hours later we were still there and we didn't have kids to do any of the exciting things like the zipline. The Sports Hall of Fame even to Brits was really interesting and the volunteers really helped you. There was so much interactive stuff to do,... More

Try out the Skeleton, visit the Sports Hall of Fame, or watch a hockey game. Great place to see world class events in Bobsleigh, snowboarding and much more. Our kids love it.

We used to always do teambuilding activities here in the summer and despite how afraid of heights some of our coworkers were, it was always an adrenaline rush blasting down from the 90m tower! Safe and Exhilarating!

We went to the COP Zipline for a "big kids" 40th birthday activity and had a blast. I suggest buying the discount pass at Costco for the additional savings. We reserved our zipline and the staff was on time, professional, and detailed with regards to safety. This is a great afternoon activity for all ages.
