Calgary is cooking this February! Here are just a few reasons to visit Calgary for winter fun!


Jokes aside, Skijordue is an utterly unique Calgary event that takes place February 2nd at the Calgary Polo Club. A combination of “fondue,” and a new sport called “skijor” where skiers and snowboarders are pulled behind horses in a version of on-land water-skiing, Skijordue is some of the most fun you can possibly have in the winter! Hundreds of competitors go head to head in races and exhibitions while thousands watch, get dressed up in ridiculous winter cowboy outfits, eat delicious cheese and drink even more delicious beer! It’s wild, wacky, and completely Calgary.
It may seem strange, but if any of this sounds remotely like something you’d enjoy then you’re absolutely right.


There are lots of reasons to love winter, but maybe first and foremost is HOT CHOCOLATE! There’s something about being inside holding a warm cup full of a hot, sweet treat while the cold winter winds blow outside that’s absolutely magical.

YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is a celebration of that very special feeling, as well as a chance to sample some of the truly finest drinking chocolate in the world! Throughout February, cafés, restaurants and chocolatiers around the city all vie for the top spot in three categories: YYC's Best Hot Chocolate, Best Spirited Hot Chocolate and special Cup That Runneth Over Award! That means they pull out all the stops to serve you the most luscious and comforting hot chocolates and cocoas they possibly can! Even better, proceeds from the event support Calgary’s Meals on Wheels, which provide meals to the city’s most vulnerable populations. It’s something we look forward to every year – don’t miss out!
