Calgary is definitely a four-season city. Blessed with an almost overwhelming choice of leisure-time activities and opportunities, the city offers both seasonal endeavours year-round pastimes.
Year-round indoor sport options include skating (there are artificial ice rinks in every quadrant of the city and the best speed skating facility in the country); swimming at one of the many indoor pools; fitness classes; rock-climbing; racquet sports; and any team sport you might imagine.
In the spring, downhill or cross-country skiing continues at many resorts and in the back country of the nearby Rocky Mountains. This is also a time when Calgarians are jogging, outdoor training, hiking and roller-blading.
Summertime in Calgary is a celebration that’s all about enjoying the warm weather and the outdoors, the accessible and well-maintained parks and playgrounds, golf courses, pools, and the pathways that are so treasured by Calgarians.
Fall – which can be glorious in Calgary – marks the start of the new activity year, with many indoor team sports leagues kicking off new seasons.
