When (weekends/weekdays) do you prefer to hike? What areas would you like to hike?

I can usually do either weekend or weekdays. I have a varying schedule so usually can often be flexible. It just depends on kids, clients, and courses. I welcome switchbacks, soon I may be ready for scrambles. I also love to bike, snowshoe, toboggan, or ski, both styles: Alpine; formerly a double black skier, (before life got in the way), Cross Country; a beginner with being much faster on the downhill). I'm so happy to get outside! and I'm happy to be able to help with coordinating events. I live just west of the city, so would prefer carpool spots on the westside edge of the city.

Your Ability Is: A)In city parks (Novice) B)Under 10km-500m elevation (Beginner) C) 10km-20km and 700m elevation (Moderate/Intermediate) D)10km-30km over 900m elevation (Advanced) E)Scrambles (Advanced/Expert)

I've doing hikes in the moderate category, based on the choices listed. Over the years I've done many hikes in AB and BC, in the National and Provincial Parks. Glacier, Roger's Pass, Yoho, Drumheller, Banff, Jasper, Kootney, K-country... I used to hike with my Family, who are still in BC with little kids, and my Aunt (90), who is in Calgary but she has really slowed down now. I've been with an outdoor club since '07, and have not found enough slowpoke friendly hikes. I'm faster on the flats and downhill bits. I enjoy the views and time outside, so I appreciate a relaxed pace. I like to stop and take pictures and have a leisurely lunch with with good company. If there is food sharing, plus maybe just a wee tipple, (must keep our heads and feet working properly after all) and laughter it's all the better. (:

Do you agree to sign the waiver (provided by the organizer) at each meetup you attend? A copy of our waiver for you to read is available under the More Tab under Files. There is no need for you to print this.

Absolutely!! Have read it, signed it, will sign again, and will bring it for others to sign to. :)
