White Easter expected as storm approaches Calgary

Environment Canada warning of potential for heavy snowfall Friday

CBC News Posted: Apr 18, 2014 12:45 PM MT

After a long winter, southern Albertans will likely face a 'white Easter' this weekend as a storm moves from the mountains into the Foothills.
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement Friday to warn about the potential for heavy snowfall in the City of Calgary and surrounding areas. 
A developing low pressure system is producing precipitation over areas of southern Alberta with temperatures near or slightly above zero, that is expected to fall a wet snow at first. 
While the wet snow will initially melt, with time and increased intensity it is expected to accumulate.
Some areas around the Foothills could see 10 centimetres in all.
Southern Albertans are being warned to use extra caution and monitor weather conditions if travelling Friday.
The communities of Airdrie, Cochrane, Olds, Sundre, Okotoks, High River and Claresholm are under the same special weather statement.  Banff National Park, Kananaskis and Canmore are under a snowfall warning, with 10 to 20 centimetres expected.
The highest snowfall amounts are expected to be around the Icefields Parkway.  Drivers should be aware of the changing road conditions and be prepared for visibility to be suddenly reduced in times of heavy snow.

Only in Calgary!

Calgary's new airport runway set to open in June

The countdown is on for the new runway to open at the Calgary International Airport.
Construction is still underway on the new $600-million runway, which will be more than four kilometres long and over a metre thick. Several more weeks of work are needed but the first flight is scheduled to depart from the runway on June 20 at 2 p.m. MT.
"This runway was planned 40 years ago," said Garth Atkinson, president of the airport. "To see it all come to pass, through a lot of planning, a lot of design, construction in the last few years and all the effort by so many people and so many organizations, it's quite exciting."
The airport says its top goal is to offer a non-stop flight to China.
Atkinson says that's likely still a few years away.
A new international terminal is also under construction. 
The budget for the terminal alone is roughly $1.4 billion and it is expected to open in late 2015.

A NEW way out coming!  YIPPEE!!!!
Airport & City!

Jubilee Auditorium

The Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium is situated adjacent to the University of Alberta. A twin facility, the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, is located in Calgary. Both are owned by the Government of Alberta and operated in partnership with the provincial departments of Infrastructure and Alberta Culture.

Mama Mia
In 2004, an extensive renovation was undertaken to revitalize these community icons. Improvements focused on patron comfort and performance enhancements including acoustics, seating, climate control, and more. The venue has a new look, yet has maintained its historic charm. The facilities were reopened in September, 2005 to commemorate Alberta’s 100th anniversary
