Winter in Edmonton

by larky2000

Hi Everyone,
I am considering studying in Edmonton. I haven't had the chance to visit it, if ever i do, would not probably get the chance to experience the coldest part until i really decide to study there. Was wondering how cold is negative 30 or 40 - in terms of how many layers of clothing are usually used when outside e.g. going to the bus stop and so on? How long does this kind of weather generally lasts there? I come from the Philippines and had only experience negative 12C. Thank you very much for your help!!!

Hello!
It usually doens't get to minus 40 or even minus 30. If it does it is only for a couple of weeks. I am a small female, and I usually wear a shirt, sweater, scarf, coat and mitts. I also get cold very easily :) The cold weather is bearable as long as you dress properly!

anything under -25 is insignificant, it just mean how long your exposed skin will freeze. Make sure you cover up all the parts you do want to keep after winter!

Thank you for your help. Well, certainly i would want to still have all of my body parts after winter :) Yes, thanks, too, for specifically telling me what layers of clothings i need. I am a bit afraid of the cold as well ;) Take care and good day! Thanks again!!!

Well it hasn't hit minus 30 (-30C) yet this winter in Edmonton. We had two days in November, and only two days, when the temp was minus 28.2C, but since then it has been fairly mild with many days above freezing (over 0 C).
Coming from the Philipines where I imagine it must be humid, I expect that the first thing you will notice is that our air is very dry (summer and winter).
To keep warm have a good winter coat with warm gloves and a hat (or a hood on your coat); wear boots (there are lots of fashionable boots that'll keep your feet warm if you wear warm socks as well, you don't have to wear "moon boots" unless you are going on a very long walk in the woods!!). Scarves can be used to cover your face if there is a very cold wind.
Under the coat you can layer to match the temperature - just a long sleeved shirt/blouse will be enough on most days, add a fleece vest on colder days, or a warm sweater when it's colder, and long underwear when it frigid - luckily that happens only on a few days per winter.

To be honest it ususally doesn't get down to -40C in Edmonton. If it does it would just be for a day or two. Now if you're talking about with windchill, that's a different story. When there is a cold snap it can be -35, but with the windchill be down to -40 or -50 easilly. Usually these temperatures last a week or two. Mainly when there is a Siberian high, that blows over the arctic and into Canada. It can blow through in a couple days or sit and stay for a couple weeks.

What you'd wear if you were going outside in this weather would be a big winter jacket, a toque, a scarf, and gloves. You have to make sure your skin as covered, as your skin can freeze and get frost bite in as little as 10 minutes in these conditions!

Travel Tips for Edmonton

Before the mall of America was...

by sydney29

Before the mall of America was made the West Edmonton Mall was the biggest mall in the world. This is definately one of the most important things to put on your 'things to do' list. It is a place that the whole family will enjoy. Little boys and the 'big-boys' too,ha ha, will enjoy everything from an underwater submarine ride to the double loop roller-coaster. The West Edmonton Mall is my most fondest memory. I just wish that I had enough room to say everything that I have to say about that place. So i'll just say thanks Edmonton for everything you had to offer.

Local quirks that may annoy you

by VTShounen

This town is overly friendly. It was named the friendliest city in Canada a while back, by one of those quasi-serious surveys done by some hack-job lifestyle magazine. Definitely a good thing for tourists, because if you're fumbling with a map, chances are someone will stop and help you. For urbanites, especially those of us living here, this over-courteousness can be annoying. Things like seats in the back of buses being empty while people are standing around (and blocking the doorway) because they're too courteous to sit. Or cars coming to a screeching halt and block traffic because a pedestrian is approaching an intersection. The opposite holds true as well - a pedestrian will feel severely violated if you don't stop well in advance for his/her approach. In this city, pedestrians' rights of way seem to extend to 5 metres in front of them.

The root of this friendliness, I theorize, stems from the small-town mentality that this city has. Indeed, a lot of the people here were born and raised in rural areas, and the city remains a blue-collar town, despite the recent influx of knowledge workers. So needless to say, people here in general lack the sophistication of people in a 'world city'. Not necessarily a bad thing - can certainly be 'charming', because in absence also are the snobbiness and attitude that accompany sophistication. In any case, it's something to watch (out) for.

Go Trappers Go!

by Rice_Paper

If you're here in the summer (Apr-Sept), try to catch an Edmonton Trappers (minor league affiliate of the Minnesota Twins; Montreal Expos in 2003) game. It's true that Edmonton is a hockey town but these boys of summer are fun to watch. Admission is cheap ($5-$11) and you can just sit back and relax.

BTW: CONGRATULATIONS to the Edmonton Trappers! They're the 2002 PCL Champions. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ghost tour on Whyte

by Rice_Paper

If you have an hour to spare and are curious about ghostly stories around Strathcona, check out the ghost tours. I believe the guide's name is Nadine Bailey.

Just show up at the Rescuer Statue in front of the Walterdale Playhouse (by Gazebo Park) at 9pm on a Monday to Thursday night. Can't remember how much it cost though but it's not pricey, I believe.

A real Canadian saloon!!

by Jefie about Cook County Saloon

A visit to Alberta wouldn't be complete without a visit to at least one country bar and if you're going to try it out, might as well try the real deal at Cook County Saloon! You'll see it all: people two-stepping (who'll only be too happy to show you how to do it), sexy waitresses, cowboy boots and hats all over the place - a pretty unique experience! Time to put on your best country attire! But if you don't have one, just go for jeans
