This is the perfect ski destination for groups and families as there are a variety of beginner, intermediate and expert runs which go down from the same ski lift.  

Destination overview

There’s more to Calgary than oil, cowboys and beef. The southern Alberta city, nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, has grown from pioneer settlement to cosmopolitan city in the space of 120 years. Visitors will find that the city has a thriving music scene – traditional and modern – and Canada’s third-largest Chinatown. There are plenty of shopping opportunities in the central area and an added bonus is the absence of a provincial sales tax.

Calgary hasn’t grown too far from its roots however. The world-famous Calgary Stampede celebrates its heritage. Fort Calgary, the 1880s North West Mounted Police post in Inglewood, encompasses a historic park, and even the Pengrowth Saddledome, home of NHL’s Calgary Flames, the WHL’s Calgary Hitmen and the NLL’s Calgary Roughnecks, which is shaped like a saddle.

Calgary’s real story is the great outdoors. Fish Creek Park, in south Calgary, is Canada’s largest urban park, three times bigger than Stanley Park in Vancouver. Within a couple of hours’ drive is Banff National Park and Lake Louise, Canada’s first national park, a mecca for winter sports and nature enthusiasts.

Getting around Calgary

Calgary has a bus system and a light-rail system, the C-Train, running through the city. You can transfer between the two easily, and the C-Train is free anywhere in the centre. If you want to rent a car, you can find any of the car rental companies at the airport or around town. Taxis are also convenient, and reasonably priced. Be careful if you decide to walk. East-west blocks are very long, and it can take you longer than you’d expect. To help pedestrians get around, the city has the “Plus-15” system, which is a series of enclosed walkways connecting buildings above street level. You can access the walkways at streets marked with a “+15.”

Getting from the airport to the city

Flights to Calgary arrive to the main airport Calgary International Airport (YYC), which is approximately 10 miles (17 km) northeast of the city centre. Many hotels offer curtesy shuttles from the airport so check your options at booking. There is also a regular shuttle between the airport and the city centre, several public bus services and coaches. Taxis, limousines and car rental companies are represented at the airport.
