The City of Calgary is located in the foothills of the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 1,050 metres. Calgary was the host of the 1988 Winter Olympics, and holds a world famous Calgary Stampede festival annually in July. Famous tourist places like Banff National Park, Lake Louise, or Canmore are just about an hour drive from the city. The magnificent Rocky Mountains provide unparalleled scenery and opportunities for various activities such as hiking, mountain and cross-country skiing in the winter months, and rock climbing. Calgary/Banff cultural life is also rich, with various activities in the performing arts, e.g., by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Alberta Ballet Company, Theatre Calgary, the Calgary Opera Company, Alberta Theatre Projects, the Banff Centre for the Arts, as well as exhibitions at the Glenbow Museum and Art Gallery. The Epcor Centre for Performing Arts provides theatre and concert facilities of the highest calibre.
