“Convenient and warm”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Keeps you away from those crazy drivers...and all but the most determined hobos. Downside is they take some time to learn and not all buildings are connected.

“Handy to get around downtown when it is cold outside”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Sometimes not very direct, but very nice to use in the middle of winter. It doesn't really connect tourist attractions, but using it is a nice way of using up a couple spare hours.

“Great way to tour downtown in poor weather”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is amazing. It may need some mapping skills to get you around where you want to go, but it's amazing how much of downtown Calgary is connected by Skywalks. Make this a challenge to see how far you can get without going outside!

“In from the cold”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

If you are downtown for any reason, whether you are working there or visiting the city and staying in a hotel downtown, the +15 is a DELIGHT. It covers most of the "core" with "in from the cold" options, many of which go from the Hotel's door to the restaurant's without having to hit the streets. Because the winters can be nasty, this system is the best I've ever seen in any downtown core of any city. Expect plenty of business lunch time traffic though.

“Smile when it’s cold, rains or snows…”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Summer is beautiful, but winter is brutal. Even smile when it rains. Get anywhere in your shirtsleeves, like indoors, without cold, wind or wet. It’s a complete promenade from building to edifice, shop to store, on the 2nd level (+15 meters), all over the downtown of the city. Look out across the street and above the traffic. From office to business, you can walk and browse and shop. Get a coffee or beverage. Or anything. Like some cities have an underground network, this in Calgary is on the 2nd level, protected from the elements, above traffic. Neat-o!
