Sports & Recreational Facilities Attractions & Entertainment

Recreation – and any sport that might end with medals – are Alberta passions. World-class facilities built for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary are still top-notch training hubs and open to the public. Basically every town in the province has a hockey rink. • Go far: Glide to Canmore Nordic Centre’s groomed cross-country ski trails. Rent skis for the day and then watch the pros qualifying for the World Cup. • Go fast: Skate the “fastest ice in the world” at the Olympic Oval. • Go downhill: Skiing doesn’t have to be a mystery. In a 90-minute lesson, learn to ski or snowboard at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.
