Who we are

WinSport is proud to own and operate Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, one of the key legacy facilities from the 1988 Winter Olympics. We also operate the Bill Warren Training Centre at the Canmore Nordic Centre; and the Beckie Scott High Performance Training Centre on the Haig Glacier in Alberta.

We provide programs and facilities that help people of all ages discover, develop and excel at sport and we inspire and activate human potential through the spirit of sport.


Canada Olympic Park is home to one of Canada’s largest ski and snowboard schools. It features terrain for all abilities, a world-class halfpipe, FIS-sanctioned slopestyle course and terrain park. Western Canada’s largest tube park also provides fun for the entire family.


Our lift-accessible downhill trails and a skills centre provide opportunities for mountain bikers of all ages, while our zipline, summer bobsleigh experience and mini-golf course can provide a full day of fun.


The Markin MacPhail Centre features one international sized arena with seating for 3,000, along with three National Hockey League sized ice rinks. Two gym facilities provide opportunities for high-performance athletes and the public. WinSport also hosts hundreds of events each year in our unique and inspiring spaces, serviced by our best-in-class catering team.
