White Or Green Christmas? This Calculator Tells You What To Expect Based On Where You Live In Canada

Not all of Canada is doomed for a Green Christmas.

Christmas is less than a week away and considering the fact that some places in Canada are completely without snow right now, it doesn't bode well for us. Chances are slim for a lot of places to have a white Christmas this year.

Fortunately, Canada is a big country with lots of places to go. So if your city isn't due for lots of snow soon, you can just pack up and head somewhere else. There is even a calculator out there that will tell you where exactly you'd have to go to find a white Christmas.

The White Christmas Calculator is made by a company called Omni Calculators. It uses Canadian weather data to determine a city's chances of a White Christmas. It also gives you a list of other cities near you that are due for more snow than you and how far you'd have to go to get there. 

This second part of the calculator is useful for a lot of major Canadian cities like Vancouver that have the lowest chances of seeing a white Christmas. This year it will also be especially helpful in Toronto where the forecast pretty much guarantees a green Christmas this year.

According to the calculator, these are the chances of snow in some major Canadian cities and how far you'd have to travel from there to find an even better White Christmas. 

  • Vancouver: 10% - you'd have to travel 252 KM to Kamloops where there's a 55% chance of a White Christmas
  • Calgary: 60% - you'd have to travel 280 KM to Edmonton where there's an 85% chance of a White Christmas
  • Saskatoon: 85% - you'd have to travel 534 KM to Brandon, MB where there's a 95% chance of a White Christmas
  • Winnipeg: 100% - you wouldn't have to travel anywhere for a better White Christmas since chances are already so high
  • Toronto: 45% - you'd have to travel 24 KM to Buttonville where there's a 55% chance of a White Christmas
  • Ottawa: 75% - you'd have to travel 378 KM to Quebec City where there's a 90% chance of a White Christmas
  • Montreal: 70% - you'd have to travel 232 KM to Quebec City where there's a 90% chance of a White Christmas
  • Fredericton: 50% - you'd have to travel 145 KM to Moncton where there's a 65% chance of a White Christmas
  • Charlottetown: 55% - you'd have to travel 128 KM to Moncton where there's a 65% chance of a White Christmas
  • Halifax: 40% - you'd have to travel 180 KM to Charlottetown where there's a 55% chance of a White Christmas
  • St. John's: 65% - you'd have to travel 766 KM to Stephenville where there's a 70% chance of a White Christmas

So if your city's chances of getting a white Christmas this year are depressingly low, simply pack your bags and go to next snowiest city.
