    Exceeded expectations. Room was minty-smelling clean on arrival. Area quiet, felt safe. Room big, with table/chair and work desk/chair, plus chesterfield. Fridge & microwave. GREAT staff. Continental breakfast included (juice, coffee, pastries, muffins, fruit). Others in area wanted $100+ per night; we paid less than $70 here for each of 2 nights. Reccomended.

What to wear in March?

by DaveSamaroo

Dear Forum: The coldest its gotten in any place I have lived in is London - arouond zero degrees celsius. Calgary sounds like its way below that. I am visiting Calgary for a 4 day business meeting next week. Have no idea what do you wear when its that cold. Can you tell me what do (males) wear when it gets as cold as it is now in Calgary - head to foot - inside and out - the gory details. Thanks

Re: What to wear in March?

Well, let's first check the weather forecast:

http://www.theweathernetwork.com/weather/caab0049

So around -13C to 4C. No snow at least.

Underlayer - Underwear and a t-shirt. If you can't bear the cold, wear long johns but it's going to get uncomfortable once you get indoors.

Midlayer - Maybe a sweater and jeans. You did mention business meeting though so you might be stuck with the uniform (aka suit and tie)

Outerlayer - 3/4 length black/grey wool coat would look quite professional along with a wool scarf. Otherwise a parka.

Feet - Medium thickness socks. Winter boots would do the job for tackling any snow/water on the ground. But again, it's going to get uncomfortable once you get indoors. For me, I would just bring dress shoes and clean them once you get back to your hotel.

Hands - Gloves are a must!

Head - A winter hat (toque) would be advisable but if you're afraid it's going to mess up your hair, you'll have to do without one.

If you'd like to see business attire for a man, go to the Tip Top website right now. This should suffice for the weather you're going to see next week and still look professional:

For more casual and functional clothing, take a look at Mountain Equipment:

Calgary expects to be warmer next week. A sweater and jacket with gloves and a hat should be fine during the day, maybe even at night to -10. -10 in Calgary is like 0 in London. Lack of humidity is the main factor

We are currently enjoying a chinook in Calgary - temperatures hit +10C today. The forecast for the week is expected to be above freezing during the day. :)

Travel Tips for Calgary

LEAVE THE CITY! Get out into...

by lauriejeanne

LEAVE THE CITY! Get out into the foothills and prairies to the east, the Rocky Mountains to the west... really any direction you drive will have spectacular things to see.
If you're hungry, check out the Memories Inn in Longview, Alberta. It's quite a drive but the character of this place makes it more than worth it! And the drive out there is on one of the most beautiful highways in Alberta. Most people come to Calgary in July to see the Stampede. But I truly suggest that if you really want to experience a rodeo, or Native culture, you should go to the local towns surrounding the city. Try the Indian Resource Council of Canada (281-8308) to find out where the local Native Pow-Wow's are (see my entry below as well as my Native Culture travelogue!). If you're coming this far, you may as well experience the REAL thing!
If you click on the pictures below, you'll get a much better feel for the excitement of rodeo close up!

If you want a whole day trip...

by Kaysi

If you want a whole day trip head out to Banff and walk around the town for the day. Try to resist buying anything you could buy elsewhere as everything in the town is way overpriced. If you're looking for a place to party at nite, head out to the AURORA, a bumpin club. If you're in a chill mood, take the gondola up to the top of the mountains and obseve the view... definetly worth the trip Cruzing down 17th avenue south in a mustang convertible naked with 6 friends.
>>>>NOTE: if you want to see the nite life of Calgary hit up 17th ave... day or nite, it's a whole different culture.

Didn't expect to see this little fella!!

by scottishvisitor

What a surprise to find these little creatures not far out of a city. The Gophers like to live alone maybe this is why we only saw the one. These little critters build complex underground tunnels using their front legs and strong front teeth pushing the dirt to the surface creating great mounds of freshly dug earth. The little ground breaker was captured near a restaurant but can you imagine if he got into your garden - creating such a mess of your lawn not to mention the damage to your shrubs, plants and trees.

Packing List

by Poohgirl_007

In the summer it is very breezy, and not too hot or humid. During my stay I was wearing jeans and a light jacket. But be prepared for anything, because when I was coming back from Banff on a really nice day, it started HAILING big ice pellets in the middle of August!

Twelve Mile Coulee

by Jetgirly

Twelve Mile Coulee is a natural valley located in the far northwest of Calgary, in the neighbourhood of Tuscany. The coulee stretches from the far north end of the city all the way down to the Bow River, and there are a variety of walking and biking trails available for users. I started by walking in the base of the coulee, but found trails in March were too muddy for easy walking. I then climbed up a dirt trail to connect to the paved bicycle path that runs along the top of the coulee. This trail is excellent for cyclists and walkers alike, and stretches for miles! You could walk all day!

The coulee is home to wildlife including ground squirrels, deer, porcupines and coyotes, although your best chances of sighting wildlife will be at dawn and dusk.
