WinSport opens the Advanced Terrain Park for the 2024 seasonJan 25, 2024
Thanks to the tireless work of WinSport’s operations team, we are now ready to open up some of the features in the Advanced Terrain Park (ATP).
The park, which is located on the west side of the winter hill, will open its gates beginning at 11am on Friday, Jan. 26!
Passholders who have added the Advanced Terrain Park pass to the winter season pass will gain access to the West Terrain Park which includes several rail lines that will lead into three large jumps. These jumps will then be followed by two lines of rails!
One of the most anticipated aspects of the Advanced Terrain Park is the prospect of top-to-bottom park laps, allowing you to seamlessly make your way through the course and hop back on the lift and do it all again.
Coming this weekend, the XL Halfpipe will open to ATP pass holders. Standing at 22 feet tall and stretching an impressive 120 feet, our world-class halfpipe promises an experience like no other for skiers and snowboarders with expert skills to hone their abilities in their own backyard.
As if that wasn't enough, Alberta Snowboard is set to host a spectacular event within the Advanced Terrain Park on Jan. 27th and 28th. Be prepared for a showcase of talent and skill as participants tackle the challenging course, featuring an assortment of obstacles designed to excel on a world class venue.
Competition Closures – Respect the Boundaries:
During the event, specific features within the Advanced Terrain Park will be temporarily closed to the public at designated times. It's crucial for everyone to respect these closures, contributing to a safe and fair competition. During non-competition times, the features will be open to the public. Mark your calendars with the following closure times:
Slopestyle: January 27th, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
XL Halfpipe: January 28th, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Snow Rodeo will also be returning to Canada Olympic Park next month, with the FIS Snowboard Halfpipe World Cup. The snowboard event, which runs Feb. 9-10, features the top halfpipe and slopestyle riders in the world.

Know before you go:
The features of the Advanced Terrain Park are to be used by experts and only those who are confident in their skills on the hill.
All users must make themselves familiar with the Alpine Responsibility Code. You can ensure you’re staying ‘Park Smart’ by following these guidelines:
- Use of the Advanced Terrain Park involves risk of injury. The participant controls the degree of risk they will encounter in using the features in the Advanced Terrain Park.
- The participant should not attempt any of the features, or any trick or airborne/aerial manoeuvres on the features, unless the participant has sufficient ability and skill to do so safely. The participant must always stay in control and within the participant’s ability.
- Snowsport helmets are mandatory in the Advanced Terrain Park.
- Keep landings and knuckles clear. Clear the landing to avoid collisions. Do not stop or sit in a landing, knuckle, bottom of roller, or anywhere that you are not visible to skiers/riders uphill from you. If you need to stop or take a break make sure you are visible and can be seen from above.
- Do not ski/ride through landings. When not using features, stay off to the side of the trail, out of the way.
- Use features in the manner in which they are intended. Don’t jump off the sides of the takeoffs. Save the takeoff lips for people who want to ride the feature correctly. Practice riding on small jumps or rollers instead.
- Do not “snake” other skiers/riders. Be courteous of your fellow park skiers/riders and call your drops. Give people a decent amount of time and space when waiting to ski/ride a feature to avoid cutting other people off.
- Slow down when exiting the terrain park.
