What: Was riding the slopes on your Christmas list? Well, Santa came through this year as you can ski or snowboard for free on Christmas day IF you’re dressed up as Santa, an elf, a reindeer, or other character. (It must be a full costume, not just a hat, to qualify for the free full day pass).
What: Incredible lights illuminate the Calgary Zoo in almost every colour imaginable. Along with beautiful scenery you can skate on their skating rink, visit Santa, do kids activities and watch the Calgary Zoo’s new interactive light display.

When: Now until Saturday, January 2 from 6 to 9 p.m.
