bus to Moyie

by chrisgoo


I'm looking to get to Moyie, BC from Calgary? What's the best (and cheapest) way to get there.

Would it be worth getting a car?? After Moyie, I'm probably going to Vancouver


Re: bus to Moyie

by oldguy472003

Greyhound does it in about 8 hours.
You leave Cgy at 6:30 AM and arrive in Moyie about 2:30.

Alternatively you could fly to Cranbrook and then find your way down.

If you can afford a car then do it.. You'll enjoy the drive.

Travel Tips for Calgary

The little town of Banff is...

by hcameron

The little town of Banff is very nice. It has all the required ski town stuff. The town has all forms of shopping, bars, rock and roll music and people. The Banff Springs Hotel is great. I wasn't able to try the skiing but the natural surroundings are beautiful. Banff is inside a Canadian National Park. The hiking is great and winter offers a different experience. This a picture of a big horn sheep that was on the road near Johnson Canyon.

VT'ers meet from Canada, Germany and the USA

by spartan

In addition to the wonderful scenery and hospitality of the people who live in Calgary, I must say that meeting fellow VT members Kai and Laurie-Jeanne was the absolute greatest. If you get the opportunity to meet fellow VT members, do so! I guarantee that you will have lots of fun. In this picture, Kai and I are setting the table for dinner and also getting ready to sing the national anthems of our respective countries....Germany, the United States and Canada. What a blast!

ALWAYS be ready for snow

by Quartzy

I was on my way to Calgary at the end of April, we were DAYS away from the month of May when this HUGE snow storm happened: over 50 cm fell on the Calgary area; over 70 cm in the Banff area! The roads were blocked and my friend and I had to spend the night in a small town's City Hall along with other unlucky drivers.

When we finally got to Calgary, all hotels were packed of course but luckily I have an uncle who lives there and who was willing to let us spend the night. And he told us that sort of snow storm regularly happened in Calgary, sometimes even in May! Therefore don't take any chance and have warmer clothes with you just in case! Also, if you're driving in Calgary, don't settle for summer tires; have all-seasons so you're not in trouble in case there's snow.

Bring your tennis racquet

by penumbra

Tennis season in Calgary, is generally from May through October. The City of Calgary maintains about 160 tennis courts at 50 sites around Calgary. The courts are freely available on a first come, first served basis. However, players are asked to limit their time to 30 minutes if there are other players waiting.

Sunrise is about 8.00am these days.

We had finished breakfast on wednesday morning when I took this photo. Most of those living in the subdivision had long gone to work leaving the place for the retirees and a few mothers who stay at home.

The rest of the day went well with blue sky all day, lots of sun and a temperature that reached about -3 C. Just a week after the mercury scraped itself off the bottom of the glass at -32 C. One of the not so nice things about living in Calgary.
