Contrary to popular belief, Canada does have seasons, and not all of them are filled with snow. While the northern parts do tend to be colder, the southern regions experience seasons very similar to the rest of the United States. The west coast has moderate temperatures year round, and in the Rockies, it tends to stay cold and snowy most of the time, especially in the higher altitudes. Calgary doesn’t tend to get snow, but Banff and Canmore get a few feet in the spring. In the south, summers are as hot and humid as they are in the U.S., and rain slows in the fall to bring the changing colors of leaves to beautiful autumn reds and oranges.
