And that’s a wrap…

Skyline Luge Calgary would like to extend a huge thank you to our guests, partners, agents and staff for your incredible support this summer!
It has been another record-breaking year at Skyline Luge Calgary with more visitors than ever stopping by for a Luge adventure! Other records include number of Luge rides and photos sold in a day and we even managed to achieve a massive 747 Luge rides in a single hour!
Overall, we were thrilled to see a 25.5% increase in Luge rides over the season, despite plenty of thunderstorm action trying to keep us from operating.
It wasn’t just our Luge riders breaking records, the weather over Calgary’s summer season also deserves a mention. On June 6th, the temperature climbed high enough to top a 55-year-old weather record – reaching a whopping 30.9 C. Winsport Canada Olympic Park even constructed a 810 foot waterslide to keep everyone cool!
As July arrived, the sunshine capital was drenched with 206.1mm of the wet stuff, compared to the usual average of 66mm rainfall for the month.
Although come October, we were all excited to see the first recorded snow fall arrive on the 7th. While it meant we had to bring out the shovels to clear the tracks, we had a few bluebird days to enjoy some Luging before our season finished up on the 11th.
For those of you who made it to Globalfest in August, we had a blast meeting you over 5 fun-filled nights. Plenty of Luge deals were given away over the event and we hope you enjoyed using the vouchers with your mates!
Finally, our operation wouldn’t be half of what it is without our awesome team at Skyline Luge Calgary. We’d like to congratulate the following staff members for some wonderful achievements over the season:
- White Hat Award Nominee for 2016 – Manisha Bharath
- Luge Ranger of the Year – Coralyn Cafaro
- Highest Photo Sales Record and highest photo sales per day – Lucia Nguyen
- Most number of carts serviced in one day – Ryan Jantzi
Thanks for all of the fun, laughter and smiles and we look forward to seeing you at Skyline Luge Calgary next May for another great season in 2017!
