Winter is still a month away, but someone must have forgotten to tell Mother Nature because Calgary is covered in it’s usual white blanket.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, as the snow actually lends opportunity for anyone looking to slip and slide down some hills.

Calgary actually has a bylaw in effect stopping would-be tobogganers from sliding down any hills that haven’t been officially give the green light, but lucky for us there are quite a few on that list.
