There are many reasons to visit Calgary, but one of the main draws is its winter sports opportunities. This Canadian city lies at the foot of the impressive Rocky Mountains and offers unparalleled snow conditions. Ski down the slopes in breathtaking Banff National Park or compare your skills to the Olympic skiers at the Olympic Park.
In 1988 the Winter Olympics were held in Calgary. A visit to the Olympic Park, just 15 minutes from downtown Calgary, is highly recommended. In winter, the site offers fabulous skiing, snowboarding and the chance to test the bob sled track. At night, unwind in one of the many ‘cowboy bars’ that pack the centre of Calgary.
