Larch Valley Hike - T3 *Canceled*

  • Shouldice Arena

    1515 Home Road NW, Calgary, AB (map)

    51.070755 -114.164510

  • Silver BMW X5 - BKB 7940 [masked]
  • Looking to get out on Monday, and I figured for this one why not see who's interested/free and find out what they would like to do.

    Based on feedback, we will head out to Larch Valley. From there we will go as far as people are comfortable - maybe stop below sentinel pass, maybe go up it. We'll see how the day goes.

    Although this is 'moderate' it's quite easy and anyone can do this.

    Distance: ~11 KM

    Elevation Gain:  ~600M 

    Difficulty: T3 If unsure what this means, please familiarize yourself.

    http://www.meetup.com/Slow-and-Steady-Hikers/pages/Trail_Rating_System/

    Estimated trip time: 4-6 hours, always be prepared for 24 hours.

    Trailhead: Moraine Lake, Lake Louise.

    Required personal gear: Sturdy hiking footwear, layered clothing with a waterproof shell, personal first aid kit, headlamp(s) with extra batteries, food and water - you can never have too much

    Recommended personal gear: Hiking poles, gaiters, map/compass, camera.

    Please bring cash for car-pool drivers. Gas for this location is $25 each. 

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me,[masked]

    Real-time tracking while we're out, feel free to share with emergency contacts. Be aware this is not always 100% and authorities shouldn't be called because it misses a few updates.

    Waivers: As per the new policy for waivers; I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact. You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.

    I didn't check my e-mail prior to heading out. Hence I didn't see the cancellation notice until I was sitting, waiting at Shouldice Arena. So, yeah I made an error in not checking my e-mail first thing, but truly last minute cancellations do affect the rest of the group.

      Also, for your information, there is another MeetUp group scheduled to go this coming Wednesday. A member of the group suggested that since the forecast for Wednesday is poor, they consider shifting the hike to Thursday. I posted a comment saying that I might be able to attend if they go Thursday (I am unsure of my schedule later this week as I have to make a trip down to Montana sometime prior to this coming Sunday.)

    Guys, I sent an email but I'll also note it here, this is canceled due to numbers. Parks Canada requires a group of four for the area due to Grizzly activity.

    Sorry guys, won't be able to do this. Today's hike with another club was too difficult...

    • Mike S.

      Please refrain from canceling last minute like this. I now have to cancel the trip as this requires 4 people for the area.

      This is the same as a no-show.

    Hi guys, what is Assiniboine? Is it a mountain? Will you climb it? What level of difficulty is it? Thank you in advance!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
