Canada has six time and four climatic zones. From an icy cold -40 °C in winter to +30 °C in the summer, you can find all kinds of weather there. The Rocky Mountains are particularly inviting for skiing in the colder season. From the safety of strange lunar-like buggies at Hudson Bay you can watch the polar bears as they wait for the water to freeze so that they can reach their hunting grounds.
Canada has two officially recognised sports. The national summer sport is lacrosse whilst ice hockey has been the national winter sport since 1994.
