Install iCloud Control Panel on the computer.
The control panel will act as the intermediary syncing the Outlook calendar to the iCloud calendar.

I have it already but nothing uploads and I can't even see my Outlook calendar on iTunes to sync it up. Perhaps this is an issue with Windows 8. I am going to try it on Windows 7 and have one calendar as a default calendar.

Nope it does work even if I sync up with iCloud control panel. Not sure why, I even added it on iTunes and actually selected my local calendar with the manual sync. Then I created a bogus meeting on my local calendar, ran the iTunes sync, and waited over 10 minutes to see if my iCloud Calendar was updated. Nothing.

The issue is with Windows 8. It works fine with Windows 7.

Below are step by steps to upload an Outlook calendar to iCloud:
- 1. Using Outlook 2010, click File, select Import
- 2. Select EXPORT to a file
- 3. Select Microsoft Excel 97-2003 or Comma Seperated Values (Windows)
- 4. Select the Calendar to export from (this is the source calendar)
- 5. Save the exported file as: Calendar.csv
- 6. Export "Appointments" from folder: Calendar
- 7. Export and create individual occurrences’ of appointments or tasks that occur between: range_date and range_date
- 8. The utility will export your file
- 9. Go back to File, Import, and NOW you will IMPORT the same file but now the DESTINATION will be iCloud
- 10. Select Import from another program or file
- 11. Select Microsoft Excel 97-2003 or Comma Separated Values (Windows)
- 12. Browse to the import file and select it
- 13. Now, you can only use "Allow duplicates to be created" because the other two selections (Replace duplicates with items imported and Do not import duplicates items) will give you an error. In fact, "do not import duplicate items does not do anything.
- 14. Click Next and now Select the iCloud Calendar
- 15. Click Next and your calendar will be uploaded to iCloud. This will create duplicates and you will need to delete your calendar constantly.
Note: What I was proposing is to have an import utility directly into iCloud.com calendar's settings.
