Temperatures drop as frigid cold winter weather comes to Calgary

After weeks of somewhat mild winter weather, Calgarians are bracing for temperatures to drop over the next few days thanks to a polar vortex.

Starting on Saturday, daily high temperatures are forecast to hover in the -20 C range for a few days.

The coming cold snap has even forced WinSport to close their ski and snowboard hill on Sunday and Monday.

The hill should be open on Friday from 1 p.m. – 9 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m., but officials advised guests to keep an eye on winsport.ca for updates.

In addition, WinSport’s tube park will be closed Friday through Sunday, with plans to reopen on Feb. 12.
