As a born-and-raised Calgarian, it sometimes seems like I’m a unicorn out in the prairies.

Color me surprised to find out about Skyline Luge Calgary, a city attraction at Canada Olympic Park that I hadn’t heard of before! On a beautiful, sunny Saturday I headed west out to COP to take the plunge on the downhill track.

So what is Skyline Luge exactly? Don’t confuse it with ziplining or luge on an ice track. It’s described as a “unique wheeled gravity View this Post
