Montreal's Olympic Stadium Will Be Turned Into a Giant Disco-Inspired Ski Jump

As the star venue of the 1976 Summer Olympics, Montreal's Olympic Stadium will be getting an overhaul in honor of the city's 375th anniversary in 2017. Plans for the big event include transforming the 165-meter mast of the stadium (currently an elevator that leads to nowhere) into a giant ski jump. Organizers want to host a Big Air competition featuring 25 of the world's best skiers. And if the drawing above is any indication, we can also expect lots of colorful lights and enough sparkle and flash to make a disco queen take notice. Testing for the project will begin in February 2016.
