With a vibrant job market boosted by the oil and gas boom, Canada’s Calgary offers city living and work opportunities with some of Canada’s best resorts within drivable distance.
Sunshine is 90 minutes, Lake Louise just under two hours, and Kicking Horse and Fernie a three hour mission. Importantly, the roads are easy drives with traffic not being an issue.
The petrol money may add up, but the world-class resorts and huge amounts of snow mean all is forgotten when you strap in. The weekend will be your best friend.
