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.
