Winter in Copenhagen http://momentummag.com/features/winter-in-copenhagen/ What keeps 80 percent of Copenhagen’s cycling citizens riding through the winter? en-us <function copyright at 0x69035f0> Sat, 07 Dec 2013 11:41:49 GMT Some Canadian cities do clear their winter bike paths-much colder, harder winters http://velourbanismblog.wordpress.com/2012/12/21/winter-cycling/

The advantages of Calgary's winters, despite some incredibly (and dangerous) cold winter temp. (last night was -40 degrees C after we had a blizzard several days ago) are: a) dry prairie air year round. Unlike Vancouver and Toronto, Calgarians buy humidifiers for their homes to prevent fine furniture wood from cracking b) weather phenomena of warm Chinook winds which suddenly warm up area and cause snow melts several times during winter. But then it's melt, snow-freeze very cold, melt, etc. ever-ending cycle.

It appears to me Copenhagen winters are kept balmier far greater than Calgary's. The snow in many of the photos looks more wet....like Toronto/southern Ontario where I lived first 3+ decades. :)
