Victoria has always been a favorite destination for Calgarians looking for a reprieve from the cold and snow, but beyond lure of lush green in the bleak mid-winter and stunning Pacific Ocean seascapes, Victoria is a hotbed of culinary experiences, offering great restaurants, farmers’ markets, microbreweries, a leading edge cocktail culture and fun food tours to tie them all together.
With winter on everyone’s minds, local ski resorts are luring families with great deals, new facilities and diverse activities this season. The light, fluffy champagne powder, which douses the Rockies in Alberta and eastern BC, attracts international visitors from thousands of miles away each ski season. But it’s Calgary’s back yard, so pack up the SUV or hop on the ski bus and take advantage of the frosty family fun on our doorstep.
We have a lot of favorite destinations that we like to travel to every summer on our family camping trips. Over the last couple of years, we’ve begun to realize that these places are just as much fun to visit in the winter. We swap out hiking boots for skis, pack snowshoes instead of boats and choose a comfortable hotel to avoid camping in the snow.
