Tips to keep warm and dry

  • Listen for the windchill index with the weather forecast. The index likens the way your skin feels to the temperature on a calm day. For example, if the outside temperature is -10°C and the wind chill is -20°C, it means that your face will feel as cold as it would on a calm day when the temperature is -20°C.
  • Dress in breathable layers to keep warm and avoid overheating.
  • Wear a hat. Most of your body heat is lost through your head.
  • Wear warm, waterproof boots, roomy enough to allow wiggle room for your toes.

Winter Walk Day is a province-wide initiative to get Albertans up and moving during the winter months. Winter Walk Day celebrates our Alberta winter while promoting the year-round health benefits of walking.

If you would like to organize your own community or workplace walk visit (you will need toRegister a site account first).
