Have fun on the slopes on a weekend at the ski resorts in and around Calgary. Make the most of the winter season and have a thrilling day skiing and breaking some snow and ice. 

A nice bonus is to enjoy some hot choco, coffee, or tea in front of the fire after enjoying your day on the slopes. 

2. Zipline 

Go to Winsport to enjoy soaring from the top of Canada Olympic Park’s ski jump tower on a zipline. Now open on Thursdays to Sundays, this can be a fun weekend activity for the whole family. 

Kids in nursery and preschool to elementary school (below 12 years old) will need an adult to accompany them, however. 

You can even get the Adrenaline Combo to get access to a bunch of other activities in one go. You can buy your tickets at Guest Services at the Frank King Day Lodge. 

Winsport has three fun ziplines: Monster Line, Plaza line and Trainer line. You’ll see fantastic sights of Bow River valley and northwest Calgary when you ride them. 

Do note that the minimum weight to ride the zipline is 34 KG and the maximum is 114 KG. You’re also not allowed if you have a history of neck and back injuries. 

If you have heart problems, make sure to consult with your cardiologist first. Pregnant women also cannot go on a zipline, as well as people under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 

Otherwise, enjoy the speeds that reach up to 120 km/h across 1,640 feet. Just make sure to wear comfy clothing and enclosed shoes and you’re good to go. 

3. Summer Bobsleigh

This could be a fun activity for kids in high school and college. Adults can join in the fun too as this is open for anyone above the age of 12. 

Have fun cruising down the track at Winsport and traveling at speeds up to 80 km/h.
