Which of these climates do you prefer?

Despite the colder summers in Calgary, Winnipeg just cannot compete winter wise.


Here is this week's forecast in Calgary the third week of January.
Warm enough to go outside for a walk or run in a t-shirt, something you need to wait another 2.5 months for in Winnipeg.

Winnipeg, easily. The lack of chinooks and more consistent cold does it for me.

Calgary, because Winnipeg winters are too cold, and summers in Calgary are also closer to my ideal. Calgary is actually a pretty great climate IMO. Chinooks are annoying, but I can live with it.

Chinooks are awesome!! Gives a nice relief to the cold.

Yeah at least the chinooks in Calgary wouldn't be as bad as the ones in Denver. But I'd rather not see a temperature above 5 C from Dec 1-Mar 1.

Calgary. Cooler summers and warmer winters overall, but with great variation so you can still get some extreme cold as well.

Pretty crazy how Calgary has colder record lows and record highs in every winter month.

I prefer Calgary's much milder winters, though it has really subpar summers, with significantly cooler nights than lower elevation Edmonton. I like the temperature variation it can get in winter, Winnipeg is just too cold. The inconvenient of these mild spells is the spotty snowcover, but I can live with that. Winnipeg's better summers makes it a difficult choice, but I'll have to go with Calgary.

This is a tough one. Calgary is not as warm as I'd like in summer, but its winters have too many thaws and it seems like it would have trouble keeping much snow around. The season for potential snow is also too long.
Winnipeg has better summers, and probably more storms too. Winter is cold and long, especially with the wind, but it would keep snow around.

Calgary by a bit, Winnipeg's winters hurt it more than the summers help it. Plus it has mountains with plenty of snow nearby.
