About the Ski Jump Towers

The tallest of the two towers stands at 90 metres above the ground level.

"The major competition facilities for ski jumping were completed and officially opened on November 28, 1986. The ski jumping complex, which consists of the K18, K38, K63, K89 and K114 metre ski jump towers, continues to be used year-round by athletes at all levels. Plastic on the K18, K38, K63 and K89 metre jumps provides an ideal alternative to snow for summer jumping. More than 100,000 jumps take place at Canada Olympic Park each summer and winter."
