As the rest of Canada revels in the cherry blossoms, and flowers bursting from a winter slumber, Calgary is just getting ready for the “real winter” to begin. Sure, snow first fell in Calgary on October 25, 2012, and hasn’t disappeared since, but most of winter in Calgary is cold. It’s a cold, dry winter. There are 2 or 3 dumps of snow, but mostly it’s just a cold dark couple of months.the snow will stay in May and maybe even fall in June.
Spring Break is upon is in Calgary, and when you can’t afford to escape winter and hit the sun, you can still enjoy all the excitement of the beach – if you try hard enough.
Snow, it’s just like sand. Substitute snow pants for bathing suits and let the kids loose with their summer toys on the front lawn – they’ll barely notice the difference.
Need a cool beer? The backyard snow drift can take care of that for you.
See? You’re in Mexico for spring break. But you’re not.
