Winter is one of the very best times to book a getaway to Calgary. Sure, it’s nice to explore gardens and sit on patios during the summer – but a winter getaway in Calgary is all about outdoor adventure and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. And what could be more exciting and rewarding than that?

Choose Your Challenge

The selection of thrilling cold weather activities is endless in Calgary. From cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, to bobsledding, luge and ice skating - you just have to take your pick.

Skate Like a Calgarian

Each winter the locals flock to Olympic Plaza to skate. The plaza was built in 1988 for the Olympic Winter Games and it has the only refridgerated outdoor ice surface in the city. Alternatively, for a more natural setting, beat those winter blues and go skating on the lagoon at Prince’s Island Park.

Tube to Your Heart’s Content

Don’t miss out on the latest addition at Winsport, the Acura Tube Park. This is the largest of its kind in Western Canada, featuring 10 incredible lanes - each 200 metres in length. That allows for a massive 500 tube runs each hour.

Walk on the Wild Side

From mountain summits to river valleys, the Rockies are home to some of the best snowshoeing trails that Canada has to offer. Just a short drive away from Calgary, you’ll can get a good taste of the abundance of trails available on a day trip from the city. And if you don’t have your own snowshoes, no worries. The U of C Outdoor Center, MEC or Sports Rent offer snowshoe rentals for under $15 a day.
