Getting There and Away
Flights arrive at Calgary International Airport. Air Canada, Westjet and various other airlines fly to Calgary on a regular basis. We suggest arriving late afternoon/early evening on March 12th, so you have time to orient and acquaint yourself. We also suggest you book early to find the best rates.
For those of you coming in from nearby, buses are available. While if you're driving, please make arrangements with the hotel for parking. Furthermore, if you are driving in and have space in your car, please do let us know, as we can help arrange car pools.
