The 1988 Winter Olympic Games XV marked Canada's debut as the host of this prestigious international event. Heralded at the time as the most successful games ever, Canadians and, more specifically Albertans, were eager to show-off their winter paradise to the world.
Mount Allan's first claim to fame was in the late 1940's when coal was discovered at the eastern base of the mountain. Close to 40 years later Mount Allan was chosen as the site for the Olympic Alpine events and in 1986 construction began on what is now known as Nakiska.
