    Canada Olympic Park provides activies for individuals and families all year long. During the winter it is a small ski hill where the kids can learn to ski and snowboard. There is also a luge/bobsled track. Here you can watch the professionals practice or take a ride yourself on the "Bobsled Bullet".

    In the summer the hill turns into a mountain bike all terrian park. There are a number of adult and childrens programs and summer camps available.

    I don't have a huge interest in the Olympics but a visit to the Olympic Park in Calgary was definatley worth it. You get a audio tour for about $15, although I didnt really listen to it. The $15 entitles you to walk through the Olympic museum, complete with a video of the 1988 Olympics in Calgary, infomation on previous Olympics, Olympic memorabilia such as torches from all round the world, old ice skates, and the bobsleigh from "Cool Runnings".

    Also you can walk to the start of the Bobsleigh track, go up the Skijump towers (highlight), and stand exactly where Eddie the Eagle stood in 1988! Plus you can get the ski lift down which is a bonus after the long (optional) walk up (you can also drive).

    Not much vertical, but a great place for kids to start learning before they take on the mountains. There is also night sking.
    Have a look at the ski jump on th left of the picture, but be afraid, be very afraid. No just kidding, go for it!

    In the winter time there's sking, snowboarding, luge, bobsled, cross country sking. In the summer you can take your mountain bike on the chairlift and ride down.

    The picture is a summer shot with the Ski Jump of the Olympic Park in the background. Picture taken with 10X zoom from Nosehill Park.

    Come see the fireworks on July 1, Canada Day.

    Canada Olympic Park
    The site of the 1988 Winter Olympic Games. Visitors can walk through the entire bobsled and luge tracks, enjoy summer luge rides, go on guided tours, and experience ski jump and bobsleigh simulators.
