Climate & Current Weather Conditions
Alberta is the sunniest province in Canada, the low humidity means that clear blue skies can be seen all year round, even on cold winter days. Summers are generally warm with highs of 25° Celsius but winters are quite cold, with the temperatures below freezing most of the season.
The spring thaw begins in April and the first flowers bloom in May, when Canmore starts to bustle with spring and summer activities. June through August are the warmest months, though evenings can still be cool so dressing in layers of lightweight clothing is ideal. Autumn begins in September, when foliage changes to beautiful hues of red, orange and yellow. Frosty days signal the arrival of winter in November when light dustings of snow highlight the majestic mountain ranges and enthusiasts pull out winter activity equipment.
