Has anyone ever been to Calgary?? where is the good ski resorts around theres... are the hostels any good? is it a pretty expensive town.* i love canada..
I live close to Calgary, been there many times. There is some beautiful ski resorts in the area. Of course they will not open tell late november. I don't know about hostels though, I'm sure they have one or two. I would suggest going to Banff or Jasper. They cater to tourist a lot more. They are the most beautiful places in Alberta. Both have fantastic ski resorts.
Good Luck and happy travels.
Oh and Calgary is just like any other city in Alberta, quite expensive if you want to buy a home or anything. I guess it depends where you are comparing it to. Alberta is a very rich province so everything is over priced. Though it is beautiful and it's worth checking out.
