Calgary

1988 put Calgary on the international map as a winter destination.  

The 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics included the launch of several snow-filled attractions that transform skiers and riders to this day. Check out Winsport (formerly known as Canada Olympic Park), or Nakiska Ski Resort for a chance to ski or ride through Olympic history.

The City of Calgary includes endless dining, shopping and a unique array of winter experiences.
