Tour of Alberta

Opening Prologue at Canada Olympic Park, site of the bobsleigh and ski jumping at the 1988 Olympics


The old Omega clock from 1988 is still running at the bobsleigh venue.


In the summer you can ride down on a bobsleigh outfitted with rubber wheels swiped from a lawnmower.

The jumping tower from 1988 is still in fine shape. Kudos to Calgary for keeping their facilities in good shape and in constant use by the public. Most cities participating in the money-laundering scam known as The Olympic Games spend massive amounts of money on facilities, use them for a few months, and then abandon them, at a cost of billions.
