  • Skydive Big Sky
    After ascending to an altitude of 12,500 feet, first-time skydivers are fitted into specially designed harnesses with their instructors?this is called a tandem jump. When the door opens, jumpers and their instructors push off into the open air. What follows is the ultimate thrill, aside from hearing your name read off a teleprompter for any reason: a free fall of more than 40 seconds. It's no surprise that such an exhilarating experience might attract return customers. Those who want to repeat this rush, as many do, can enroll in Skydive Big Sky's skydiving school, where, beginning with ground school, they'll set out on their way to becoming a certified solo jumper. From there, they'll rack up jumps, perhaps by taking part in more challenging jumps for seasoned skydivers.

  • Sylvan Lake Paintball
    Brightly colored paintballs whiz through fresh lakeside air until they collide with a tree, patch of grass, or someone's body. On three outdoor fields, this colorful carnage unfolds as mask-wearing participants take aim and fire their semiautomatic paintball guns from lookouts, behind bunkers, and under trees. Sylvan Lake Paintball's grounds also house a pro shop staffed by seasoned paintballers, where patrons can load up on everything from paintballs and CO2 canisters to barbecue burgers not booby-trapped with a surprise paintball filling.

  • Alberta Flyboard Inc.
    The power of human flight isn't hard to obtain. All it takes is some water and a quick lesson from the team at Alberta Flyboard Inc. They teach people to strap on a Zapata Racing Flyboard, which uses aquatic jet-packs to elevate its rider into the air. Then, with a bit of practice, they can soar into the air, skim the water's surface, or even dive like a dolphin who's serious about physical fitness. In addition to these lessons, Alberta Flyboard sells Flyboard kits for the most serious of aquatic adventurers.

  • Whispering Pines Golf & Country Club Resort
    Bounding over the rolling hills of central Alberta, Whispering Pines Golf & Country Club Resort’s 18-hole course spans 6,041 yards lined by aspen, poplar, and evergreens. Water hazards lay in wait at the edges of multiple fairways and greens alongside bunkers filled with soft, non-tropical and non-cornbread-based grains of silica sand. The relatively difficult course features multiple memorable shots, including an approach onto an island green lined by native grasses and populated by a marooned Tom Hanks at the par 5 ninth hole. Along with pin-hunting pleasures, Whispering Pines offers guests a wide variety of outdoor activities as well as overnight stay and play accommodations. Paddleboats and other aquatic conveyances churn the waters of Pine Lake (Whispering Pines makes slips available at the marina for guests with their own boats), as sand-forged castles and statues of Wayne Gretzky slowly crumble at the beach. The resort also encompasses an indoor swimming pool, exercise facilities, and a restaurant that overlooks the lake.
