Filming at COP

Film and Photography at COP

Winter scenes, summer adventure, beautiful landscapes and high performance sport all just 15 minutes from downtown Calgary. Canada Olympic Park (COP) combines the ease of working in an urban centre with terrain you expect well outside any city’s limits.

With free, ample parking and hotels literally across the street, COP couldn’t be more accessible. Two ski lifts, which operate year-round, provide fast access from the base of the hill to the top. And not only is COP on the metaphorical road to Vancouver 2010, we’re on the actual road to Canmore and Banff.

High Performance Sport
Top
WinSport facilities are first and foremost training centres for high performance athletes. Any facility’s availability is dependent on athletic competitions and training. COP’s rich history and ongoing role with high performance sport dates back to the 1988 Olympic Winter Games, which has resulted in a variety of sport facilities creating unique film and photography opportunities.
       •    Olympic Track used for bobsleigh, luge and skeleton
       •    Ice House used for indoor push-start training for bobsleigh, luge and skeleton
       •    22-Foot Super Halfpipe and terrain parks for skiing and snowboarding
       •    Ski Jumping Training Centre has multiple ski jumps used for training year-round
       •    Freestyle Aerials and Moguls Course combines ski jumping, freestyle aerials and moguls and alpine slalom in one site
Winter
Top

The majority of COP’s terrain can be supplied with man-made snow. Our ability to make snow is completely dependent on the weather as are COP's winter season opening and closing dates. Man-made snow is denser than natural snow allowing the Park to maintain a winter landscape into the spring.

Summer
Top

COP transforms from a ski and snowboard park during the winter to a mountain bike park in the spring. Our hill has mountain bike trails on the main hill and through tree-covered terrain as well as a dirt jump area. From top to bottom the Park is lush, green and the epitome of a healthy, active centre.

Eastlands
Top

WinSport owns more than 225 acres of rolling hills and incredible landscape adjoining Canada Olympic Park. Within this inner-city oasis you can hardly tell you are just 15 minutes from downtown. The Eastlands feature an incredible array of cross-country trails, variable terrain and beautiful surroundings any time of the year.

Additional WinSport Facilities

WinSport operates the Bill Warren Training Centre in Canmore, Alberta for Nordic sport training. Two high altitude glacier training centres are also maintained for summer alpine and Nordic training. Filming and photography opportunities exist at these facilities but are limited.
