Canada Olympic Park Ski Jump Structures

August 12, 2020

CANA was involved with the construction of the ski jump structures at Canada Olympic Park for the 1988 Winter Olympic Games held in Calgary. This was a unique project for CANA and presented some interesting challenges.

A total of three towers were constructed for the games. The 90-metre tower and 70-metre tower were used for competition, while the smaller tower was built for training purposes. The foundations were built using cast-in-place concrete. The towers also utilized cast-in-place concrete constructed using the jump form method. The ski jump ramps were assembled using a steel structure with a wooden timber deck to hold the inrun snow ramp. These towers are a significant part of training new Olympic Athletes into the sport of ski jumping.
