Canada Olympic Park
Canada Olympic Park was the flagship venue of the 15th Winter Olympics. During the Olympic Games it hosted ski‐jumping, bobsleigh and luge. In addition to the ski‐jump and the sliding track, the park also contains the Olympic Hall of Fame, which is the largest Olympic museum in North America; the Icehouse, an indoor refrigerated track where sliding athletes can practice their starts; and a freestyle moguls and aerials venue, which is one of the best in the world.
The Rocky Mountains provide Calgarians and visitors with spectacular views and magnificent sunsets. The mountains are easily recognizable and serve as a navigational pointer to the west. Nakiska and Canmore, located in the Rockies, co‐hosted the Games with Calgary and so the Rocky Mountains have become a much recognized and celebrated Calgary Olympic landmark.
