The primary goal of this study was to determine the best combination of facilities at Ski Wentworth and Ski Martock to act as the Skiing Event Venues for the Halifax 2011 Canada Winter Games.
Detailed digital topographic, planimetric and cadastral information of Wentworth and Martock were received from the two ski areas. This was used as the basis for the completion of slope and elevation maps of the terrain
Once complete, the templates of the various disciplines were overlaid onto the maps. Ignoring existing conditions and legal boundaries, a series of opportunities and constraints were identified where the criteria matched the physical capability of the land. Each one these sites were then evaluated in an effort to distinguish their strengths and weaknesses. This study culminated in a series of conclusions and recommendations aimed at ensuring that the Canada Winter Games will be a success while ensuring a legacy that will strengthen the ski industry offering in the Maritimes.
